Bruce’s interpretation had generated backlash from Obi’s supporters on Twitter.

A tweep, thegirlng said, ‘’I honestly hope that this account is hacked, bcos(sic) a man of ur(sic) caliber, who is well respected and held in high esteem should not put himself in a situation that will attract disrespect. Making fun of PO is as good as making fun of Nigerian youths and our struggles. Let’s be guided.’’

Trying to explain the meaning of the word, another tweep said, ‘’Articulation is an English word of which he used while addressing them, he was not referring to Atiku. You can’t deceive us, we the Obidient are wise. Go and rest sir.’’

‘’Sir, you may be supporting Atiku based on your personal choice & conviction, that’s absolutely fine. But to share a twisted video to push your course is a no-no. This is spreading falsehood. You are definitely better than this.’’ Chris Emoghene tweeted.
