I Have Never Sponsored Or Preached Action Against Nigerian State, Obi Protests

The Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the February 25 election, Peter Obi has protested against being tagged treason promoter.
Obi, in reaction to the minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed who accused him of having committed treason against Nigerian State, in a statement today, April 4, said: “I have never discussed or encouraged anyone to undermine the Nigerian state; I have never sponsored or preached any action against the Nigerian state.”
Obi frowned at the series of what he termed “calumnous campaigns mounted against him by the Minister who is in the United States meeting with the Western media.
He complained that in the past few days, he observed various campaigns of calumny directed at his person, with the latest being allegations attributed to the Information Minister, Lai Mohammed from Washington DC.
“It is most unfortunate that these consistent efforts to portray me quite contrary to what I am, and my core values, is coming from such high quarters.
“Minister Lai accusing me of stoking insurrection is totally malicious and fictitious.
“Those initiating these actions have increasingly used their official positions and agents to make false allegations against me.
“I am on record as always advocating for peace and issue-based campaign and never campaigned based on ethnicity or religion. I am committed to due process, and presently seeking redress in the Court.
“I urge those engaged in this demarketing process to stop presenting Nigeria in such bad light.
“Our future generations deserve a new Nigeria, where they can live a secure and decent life like their counterparts in other climes. It is possible. -PO”
