Investigative journalist, David Hundeyin has slammed Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party for failing to call for President Tinubu to resign.

In a post shared on X on Wednesday, October 11, Hundeyin raised concerns over Obi's presser as he failed to call for Tinubu to step down following the numerous issues bedelving the country.

On Wednesday morning, Peter Obi held a press conference where he addressed President Tinubu to re-introduce himself to the Nigerians and the world.

Obi charged him to reveal his name, date of birth, parentage, schools he attended among others.

However, Hundeyin who was not pleased with the contents of the presser, said the former Anambra Governor missed the opportunity to call for Tinubu's resignation as leader of the country.

He said;

"Peter Obi missed an opportunity this morning.

What he should have called for was for Tinubu to come clean and resign, not whatever that was.

The point of a press conference is to generate a strong headline and a lead story. What was the lead takeaway from here?

Other supporters of Peter Obi popularly known as Obidients also agreed with Hundeyin's submission on social media.

@ChuksEricE: I agree with you this.

@shyna4me: Resign is the key word. I agree

@Adaete1: Infact, he should have given him stern warning! To come down from there or be ready to meet us all in Abuja.

@Ugochukwu_96: Tinubu should just resign and save us the international disgrace. From all indications, he has absolutely no clue on what he is doing. 100+ days in office and everything is going from bàd to wòrse. Obi should have called for his resignation like atiku did.

@Chinonxo: Baba just went for 20 mins said no valient point

@IamGeefred: I agree with you.
There is no point dilly-dallying.

@Spotlight_Abby: The headlines would have screamed to the high heavens if Peter Obi had called for "Chief" Bola Ahmed Tinubu's resignation. I agree and I'd have preferred that too.

But, PO has consistently preferred to appeal to people's sense of integrity and morality first, but that doesn't…

@Spotlight_Abby: The whole idea is for everyone to know that injustice from the supreme court will not be an acceptable outcome in this story.
