Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has predicted that there will be low turnout in the Southeast as a result of the IPOB, ESN activities.

He said that these events will cause the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi to lose the general election scheduled to take place on February 25.

Reno Omokri who is a known critic of Peter Obi and his supporters made this known in a Tweet on Friday, January 20.

His tweet reads: "There is going to be a very low turnout in the Southeast due to the activities of IPOB, ESN, and unknown gunmen.

"That is why I laugh at those who say Obi will win. The Northwest and Southwest will determine this election. Obi is not even in the running. Oya, insult!"

His tweet has since brought about some reactions from netizens.

Bamidele Adeleye said: "The only reason why @renoomokri can't stop talking about @PeterObi is because Obi is important, and there is possibility that he might win the election.

"There are other candidates, but Reno doesn't care about them because they are less important. Don't stop talking Reno."

In a counter tweet, @SulymanHakym, said: "Sorry to inform you bro your narrative doesn't add up cos Obi is less known in the north. The main reason he keeps mentioning Obi is cos Obi vote will reduce PDP vote in the south-east and that was PDP's major stronghold in the last election."
