The Ramadan fast holds high significance to the Muslims during the month of Ramadan.

Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar holds great significance for Muslims all over the world.


Furthermore, it is a period of love. Indeed, so much love.

Perhaps, it was this love that Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate in the 2023 election, wanted to exhibit.

However, he ended up sparking huge controversy.

In fact, huge controversy has trailed his action after he joined Muslims at the Central Mosque in Maraba-Nyanya in Abuja to break the Ramadan fast.


The Viral Video

In a now-viral video shared on X (formerly Twitter), the former Governor of Anambra State sat beside a child on a mat while sharing a bowl of rice with the boy.

The viral video also showed almost 1,000 people at the mosque.

They were waiting to break their fast while others watched as the LP presidential candidate fed the child.

Following this development, some Nigerians commended Peter Obi.


They hailed him for being magnanimous and exemplary.

But others berated him, saying he did it to win their hearts ahead of the 2027 campaign.
