Social commentator Deji Adeyanju has placed a bet of $10,000 on the presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi to emerge “distant 3rd” in the 2023 elections.
According to Mr Adeyanju, Obi falls short in terms of support and national reach compared with Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar.
Adeyanju called on Obi’s supporters in Nigeria and the diaspora, particularly a person he called Ben, to make a bet with him.
Media mogul Dele Momodu confirmed Adeyanju credited his account with $10,000 on Monday.
“Now waiting for Ben the Obidient to do his part. We don’t display fake cash on social media here. Still ready to bet more because I’m looking for money for my PhD. next year,” Adeyanju, who is also the convener of Concerned Nigeria, wrote on Twitter.
In another post, Adeyanju said, “The Obedient guy, Ben is telling new stories now after agreeing on a call with Egbon Dele MOMODU and giving me the go ahead to pay the money in the Whatsapp group we created for this purpose.
“After displaying fake money online, the guy is suddenly afraid to perform. Obidents, why do you always lie like your mentor? Pay up Ben!”
