Taking to the micro-blogging site, he wrote: “In my life, I have never been insulted the way @PeterObi
supporters insult me. Yet, this same Peter lobbied me when he wanted to be Atiku’s running mate in 2019. I supported him over others. Yet, he watches as his people insult Atiku and I. Nobody knows tomorrow.”

Reacting to the tweet, Arkwright, replied Sowore stating that learning from other countries is key to turning round failing performance of a state, adding that not all solutions are home grown.
