Former senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye has come under heavy criticism for being sarcastic with a statement of Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
It was reported that Peter Obi during the NBA conference on Monday spoke on the need for Nigeria to have a well ‘articulated’ leadership to come out of the current economic challenges.
The word ‘Atikulated’ is used by supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Hence, Melaye shared the video on his official Twitter page, making a mockery of the former Governor of Anambra State.

He captioned the video: “Listen to Gov Obi who is obediently Atikulated in Lagos today. SDM”
This earned him backslashes from netizens.
