Peter Obi has debunked the claim that he and Bishop David Oyedepo had discussed that Nigeria was heading to a religious war.
The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate dismissed his leaked conversation with the founder of the Living Faith Church as fake and as propaganda being used by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The head of ObiDatti Media office Diran Onifade described the APC as a political entity desperate to grab and retain power using deceit.
His words: “It appears the All Progressives Congress’ desperation to grab and retain power by foul means has refused to go away more than a month after they have grabbed the election as they planned.
“While we are toeing the constitutional path to retrieve our mandate, those who have truncated the wishes of the majority of Nigerians have recoursed to mischief and endless subterfuge to continue to hold on to what they know does not belong to them.”
Onifade also accused the APC of pulling up the airline passenger’s protest as a means to discredit Peter Obi and the Obidient Movement.
He added: “All these are meant to serve no other purpose than egregious mischief aimed at demarketing Peter Obi. If the goal is to create a credibility problem, the ploy has failed woefully.
“Peter Obi has long been on record as the only presidential candidate who has urged the Nigerians electorate not to vote for him on the basis of religion or tribe .
“We will therefore like to advice our beloved Nigerian people to remain focused on the task to take back the mandate we know was freely given to Peter Obi and Datti Baba-Ahmed through legitimate means.”
