A social critic, Reno Omokri, has claimed the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, was responsible for the shutdown of the Dangote tomato paste factory in Kano.
Omokri is a strong supporter of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar.
Omokri’s claim was contained in a post via his verified Twitter handle.
He wrote, “Research why Dangote’s tomato paste factory in Kano had to shut down, and while NASCO cereals and biscuits are facing reduced market shares. It is because of people like Peter Obi, who import cheaper alternatives and destroy Arewa’s economy in the process.”
