The All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential Campaign Council has accused Peter Obi, the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, of committing contempt of the court by his continuous condemnation of Bola Tinubu’s victory even when the case is already in court.

Bayo Onanuga, Director of Media and Publicity, APC PCC, was responding to some utterances by Obi during recent interviews on national television stations.

“The defeated Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi still goes around inflaming passions,” the spokesperson noted.

Onanuga alleged that Obi has been telling lies as if he is still campaigning, even after the presidential election has been concluded.

Referring to the LP flagbearer’s media rounds on Arise TV and Channels TV, Onanuga blasted Obi for making “profoundly misleading, criminally false and inciting statements about the election that he lost woefully”.

The director complained that Obi derided the poll, describing it as the worst election in recent history and in one moment likened it to robbery.

Onanuga said Obi made the ridiculous claim about a stolen mandate, “echoing the position of his unthinking mob of supporters, who believe that he won the election because of some sponsored polls.

“Obi came third, not even second, losing by 2.6 million votes to Sen. Bola Tinubu, APC candidate and the President-elect, despite getting outrageously padded votes from his ethnic South-East states.”.

He said that the APC PCC considered Obi’s remarks on TV as prejudicial to the case he had filed and contemptuous of the court.
