Peter Obi inciting Nigerians after Tinubu’s victory – APC

The All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential Campaign Council has accused Peter Obi, the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, of making inflammatory comments.

The ruling party in a statement on Friday knocked the former Anambra governor for repeatedly condemning the victory of Presidential-elect, Bola Tinubu.

Bayo Onanuga, Director of Media and Publicity, APC PCC, responded to some utterances Obi made during recent interviews on television stations.

“The defeated Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi still goes around inflaming passions,” the spokesperson noted.

Onanuga said Obi has been spreading lies as if he is still campaigning for the highest office in the land, weeks after the exercise was concluded and a winner announced.

In reference to the LP flagbearer’s media rounds on Arise TV and Channels TV, Onanuga chided Obi for making “profoundly misleading, criminally false and inciting statements about the election that he lost woefully”.

The director complained that Obi derided the poll, describing it as the worst election in recent history and in one moment likened it to robbery.

Onanuga said Obi made the ridiculous claim about a stolen mandate, “echoing the position of his unthinking mob of supporters, who believe that he won the election because of some sponsored polls.

“Obi came third, not even second, losing by 2.6 million votes to Sen. Bola Tinubu, APC candidate and the President-elect, despite getting outrageously padded votes from his ethnic South-East states.”.

The statement added that the APC PCC considered Obi’s remarks on TV as prejudicial to the case he had filed and contemptuous of the court.
