Peter Obi inciting Nigerians after Tinubu’s victory – APC
The presidential candidate for the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has been charged with making inflammatory remarks by the All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential Campaign Council.
The ruling party criticized the former governor of Anambra for repeatedly denouncing Bola Tinubu's election as president-elect in a statement released on Friday.
Obi made some comments during recent interviews on television stations, to which Bayo Onanuga, Director of Media and Publicity, APC PCC, responded.
"Peter Obi, the Labour Party's defeated presidential candidate, still stirs up controversy," the spokesperson said.
Onanuga claimed that weeks after the contest was over and a winner declared, Obi had continued to spread false information as if he were still running for the nation's highest office.
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, likening 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, the 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.
