Charly Boy, better known as Charles Oputa, the renowned singer, has made a daring comment regarding the February 25 presidential election.
He has promised to walk naked on the streets if the Labour Party’s (LP) candidate, Peter Obi, wins the election tribunal.
The election, in which Bola Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) was proclaimed the winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), resulted in his inauguration as president on May 29.
He wrote, “When Tribunal announces say Peter Obi don win even before the case reach Supreme Court, wetin you go do dat day?
“For me,I go naked waka from one end of Bodillon to Falomo [sic].
However, Peter Obi and his party, LP, have contested the results and are currently in court challenging President Tinubu’s victory. Charly Boy, known for his outspoken nature, expressed his support for Peter Obi on his Twitter handle, announcing his unconventional celebratory plan if the former Anambra State governor emerges triumphant at the tribunal.
The controversial statement has attracted attention and sparked discussions on social media platforms. Charly Boy’s vow to walk naked as a form of jubilation is seen by many as an attention-grabbing and unconventional way to express his fervent support for the LP candidate.
While Charly Boy’s statement might be seen as humorous or attention-seeking by some, it also highlights the intensity of the political atmosphere in the country following the closely contested presidential election. Many citizens eagerly await the tribunal’s decision and are closely following the legal proceedings.
