Ahead of the 2023 presidential election, Labour party's presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has cautioned his supporters not to shut doors to collaborators while expressing their views.

Obi, in a statement on his verified Twitter handle on Sunday, advised his supporter to channel their energy positively by toleranting the views and opinions of opposition supporters.

The former Rivers State Governor whose supports have been accused of cyberbullying advised his supporters to learn from the opposition.

He said, "I sincerely thank my supporters for believing in me and my commitment to building a united, secure and well-functioning Nigeria.

"However, I appeal once more that we should be tolerant of other people's views, dissent and divergent opinions & possibly learn from them.

"While the frustration and anger in the country are understandable, we must strive to channel that energy positively in ways that will earn the support and collaboration of others.

"Even as our message continues to gain broad acceptance, there are some we still need to work to convince. In expressing ourselves, we should do so with grace so as not to precipitately shut doors to future collaborations on sustainable nation-building."
