A mechanic in Edo State on Tuesday, refused to collect money from a car owner after fixing her car because she is a supporter of Peter Obi, Labour Party presidential candidate, and had placed his sticker on the car.
The lady who took to social media platform, Twitter to share the experience, said she had approached the mechanic when the car developed a fault, but he declined payment after working on it because he saw a sticker of Obi.
In a video that has since gone viral, the lady thanked the mechanic and asked other people in the city to patronise him.
Peter Obi’s supporters nationwide have an uncommon passion for his candidature ahead of the 2023 polls.
She said in the video: “Good morning everyone, I brought my car to the car shop for the mechanic to fix, so he saw Peter Obi’s sticker on top of the car and he said because I am ‘OBIdient’ he is going to fix my car for free.
“Please I am going to put this mechanic workshop address, anybody in Benin, bring your car here, he is a good guy.”
Responding, the mechanic said: “Yes, we are ‘OBIdient’ worldwide.”
A lady brought her faulty car to be repaired and it was done for free because she's OBIdient..
he fixed the car for free 👏👏
