The Labour Party’s presidential candidate during the last general elections, Peter Obi, on Monday night, said he never visited the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, as speculated on social media.
He explained that the rumours and accompanying photo-shopped pictures being shared on social media platforms are part of moves by the opposition to derail his objective.
Obi, who is a former Anambra State governor, made the clarification on Monday night during an interview on Arise TV.
“I never visited him (Tinubu). I didn’t. These are some of the things I have been telling you. They have turned the whole thing upside down. So, what they (the opposition) do now is think about what they are going to do to cause issues and what they are going to do to label him (Obi) this or that.
“If it is not labeling him (Obi) tribal bigot, or religious bigot when he is not speaking, they will find his family and check whether he has a lovechild and all sorts of things, including misrepresented identity among others.
“I didn’t visit anybody,” the former governor said.
He maintained that he was committed to the course of justice and was ready to pursue the case before the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal to a logical conclusion.
