JUST IN: Peter Obi Finally Speaks On Father Mbaka’s Comment
Presidential candidate of Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi, has said that he had not issued any statement to Fr. Ejike Mbaka attack on him.
Obi in a statement by his Media Adviser Mr Valentine Obienyem, said he has not made any statement on Mbaka attack on him.
“Our attention have been drawn to a statement credited to Mr. Peter Obi as his reply to Fr. Ejike Mbaka. We wish to state for the record that Mr. Peter Obi did not and is not planning to issue any reply.
“We advise that any medium trying to publish such an unsigned letter should clarify its authenticity from Mr. Obi’s Media Office” he said.
Mbaka had said former Vice President Abubakar Atiku had shown that he is ready to run for the highest office in the land because he and Obi are no longer on a joint ticket.
“Peter Obi has a mouthful, he has nowhere to go unless he kneels down on the Adoration altar.”
He accused the presidential candidate of the Labour Party of insulting the holy spirit.
Mbaka claimed that he helped Obi return to the governorship seat in Anambra State, “but he did not come to thank God”.
“Who doesn’t spend his money eating what you want to support? Do you want people to starve? If he becomes president, he will close our ministry. If Igbo people are looking for a representative in Nigeria, not the kind of person Peter Obi is.”
“Whoever refuses to donate to the church should be the president?”
Hours after the news went viral, a statement went into circulation that Obi had replied him.
