Senior pastor of Covenant Christian Nation Poju Oyemade has deleted a tweet where he criticised the youth over their support for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party Peter Obi.
Mr Obi, a former governor of Anambra State, enjoys the support of the youth on social media.
Oyemade in a tweet now deleted described the online support Obi enjoys as “enthusiasm wasted on a poorly planned project.”
The preacher was forced to delete his tweet after being called out by journalist David Hundeyin.
“So Bola Ahmed is the well planned project? Hundeyin asked.
“Oga, come out and say what is really on your mind and stop all this low budget Twitter posturing. A whole Man Of God like you, are you scared? Nobody is going to beat you. Speak freely. It’s not illegal yet.”
A 2015 tweet made by Oyemade after President Muhammadu Buhari defeated an incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan at the polls has since gone viral.
“For the first time in Nig I have faith in a leadership that has the capacity to change the course of this nation,” the clergyman tweeted.
