The Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in 2019 general elections, Mr. Peter Obi has lambasted Senator Elisha Abbo for slapping nursing mother.
Reports says Obi expressed grave concern and disappointment at the poor examples political leaders were bequeathing to Nigerians.
Reacting to the trending scandal rocking Senator Abbo, who was caught on camera assaulting a nursing mother at an intimacy gadget shop, Obi said that the attitude of the Senator was very unfitting and shouldn’t have come at all from any civilized person, let alone a Senator of the federation.
Obi, recalled that this was not the first time Senators were being linked to embarrassing behaviour.
In his words,
“In the 8th Assembly, a Senator from North East was caught nude in a sex orgy with two under aged girls and another from North Central was caught on top of somebody’s wife in her matrimonial home and was beaten up and dragged on the street by villagers”.
The former Anambra state Governor advised political leaders to live above board as leaders that much is expected from by the public.
Mr Obi noted that the society cannot expect to have a decent well behaved youths “if we the leaders are not living by example.”
He further advised the relevant bodies investigating the assaults to ensure that there was deterrent as a way to begin the cleansing of the society.
