However, Nigerians have reacted angrily to Obi’s decision to board economy class, as some have stated that it is a pretentious act.
Tunde: “Na this one he take fuck up. Which one be fly economy. Why he no dey fly economy all these while? Why now he won become president he choose to fly economy. I like him and would want someone like him to be president but all these he is doing flying economy is not needed and no reason for all this social media validation.”

Mr.2kay: “2017 I was flying from Abuja to Lagos arik air. So I say on business class and saw Peter Obi walk pass to economy and sat down. I cleaned my eyes and looked at him again to be saw it was him, truly it was him. I was shocked and humbled. He is just a simple person. Him no dey form at all. Very very approachable. This is no format. That’s his personality.”
