I never campaigned based on ethnicity, religion — Obi
Peter Obi, the candidate of the Labour Party in the February 25 presidential election, has denied running a campaign based on ethnicity or religion. In response to allegations of treason leveled against him by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, Obi signed a statement on Tuesday stating that the accusations were part of a campaign of calumny against his person. He further stated that he had never discussed or encouraged anyone to undermine the Nigerian state, and that he was committed to due process and presently seeking redress in court. He urged those engaged in this “demarketing process” to stop presenting Nigeria in a bad light and to work towards a new Nigeria where future generations can live a secure and decent life.
