Peter Obi Speaks About Nigeria’s Situation For 3 Hours On Twitter Space Keeping Nigerians Captivated And Fascinating
For over 3 hours Peter Obi spoke to Nigerians on issues currently plaguing the nation and proffered solutions to them which kept the over 100,000 Nigerians across social media on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube etc glued listening to him.
I’m sure before now many haven’t spent such time on Twitter space hearing someone but as usual when Obi is live speaking and revealing so many things one cannot but stay fixed and pay attention to this rare breed of leader that is almost impossible to find in the Nigeria political space.
I have already posted some of the snippets from the amazing encounter which was hosted by ParallelFacts and let me just add a few more.
