Peter Obi Says He’s Being Pressured to  Leave the Country

Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP)  accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) and some government agencies, of trying to distract the country from the shortcomings recorded in this year’s general elections, by casting aspersions on his person.

Obi who came third after Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and Bola Tinubu of the All Progressive Congress (APC) who emerged the winner in the just concluded presidential elections said that he is being pressured to leave the country.

The former governor of Anambra State, while speaking on the issue of a viral audio recording that allegedly had him speaking to Bishop David Oyedepo of Winners Chapel, urging the cleric to act and support his ambition as a way to see that Christians win the “religious war” in Nigeria.

He described the alleged viral audio as fake.

He said “The present attempts by the APC as a Party, and the APC Led-government through some government officials and agencies to divert our attention from our blatantly stolen mandate is unfortunate and sad,”

He added that the malicious accusation of the Minister of Information, Mr Lai Mohammed, the circulation of a fake doctored audio call, and a pressure on him to leave the country are signs o f different ways they are coming at him.

He refuted the alleged audio call being circulated and emphasized that through his campaign, he never attributed the 2023 elections to be a religious war.

He said, “Let me reiterate that the audio call being circulated is fake, and at no time throughout the campaign and now did I ever say, think, or even imply that the 2023 election is, or was, a religious war.”

He also beckoned on Nigerians and the international community to urge the APC to stop their attacks on him and while clarifying that his focus and commitment is to lawfully and peacefully retrieve the people’s mandate.
