Stop Inciting Nigerians, APC Tackles Peter Obi

The Presidential Campaign Council of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has lashed out at the Labour Party (LP), presidential candidate, Peter Obi accusing him of making inflammatory comments.

In a statement on Friday which was made available to newsmen, the ruling party knocked the former Anambra governor for repeatedly condemning the victory of Presidential-elect, Bola Tinubu.

The Director of Media and Publicity, APC PCC, Bayo Onanuga made this assertion while responding to some comments Obi made during recent interviews on television stations.

‘The defeated Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi still goes around inflaming passions,’ the spokesperson lamented.

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 lambated 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.

Africa Today News, New York reports that the matter is now before the Presidential election petitions tribunal.
