The Arise TV anchor, Rufai Oseni, revealed through his Twitter handle, how the political party threatened him inside an elevator.

The journalist said the political party members were abusing him, but he chose not to respond or engage him.

According to the fierce Journalist, Rufai, he calmly walked away because he realised he was not supposed to respond to everyone.

”Abuses everywhere, people from a political party saw me an threatened me in an elevator. I just walked away, I have learnt it is not everyone you respond to,” he wrote.

Oseni added; ”Hearing all sorts is part of my job, but I am not deterred. My job is to help build my nation. The goal of a better nation is paramount. For me, the logic of the argument is paramount.

The priority is to build a nation where peace and Justice shall reign. My fidelity is to my country and not politicians.”

Meanwhile, popular Nigerian Comedian, Mr Macaroni told the tale of how he and his family received threats from supporters of a certain 2023 presidential candidate because he was against their choice.

The activist made this known via his official Twitter account on Sunday, August 14th, 2022, though he did not disclose the name of the presidential candidate.

Mr Macaroni stated that he’d been a victim of cyberbullying in the past, but that would not stop him from asking Nigerians to elect the most suitable candidates to occupy various leadership positions in the forthcoming general elections.

In his words; I went to visit my mother 2 weeks ago. I was giving out money to some people in the neighborhood as I always do anytime I go home. A woman walked up to me and asked why I am against a particular candidate.. I said I am not against anyone. All I want is for a better country.

“And that can only happen when we vote in good leaders. The next thing she said is that I should better watch myself because they know where my people live. I asked if that was a threat and she continued saying all sorts. My sister and manager were with me and I have a video!

“I can go on and on about different threats that I have received from some party members or supporters of a presidential candidate because they somehow believe that I am against their choice. Cyber bullying via different online attacks and tribal propaganda.

“There is so much dishonesty going on and it gets worse by the day. But my messaging will never change! Nigerians have suffered enough!!! Look around you and look at the serious challenges we are facing as a people.

“There’s no Messiah anywhere! However, to stand a chance for a better Nation come 2023, we must elect the most suitable options to occupy positions of leadership in the country. We must individually analyze these candidates by examining their past records, their current state of mind, their capacity and capability; Vis-à-vis the respective positions they wish to occupy. Do your research and vote for the right candidates. I rest my case. For now!”
