This is treason, you’re desperate – FG warns Peter Obi over comments on Tinubu
The Federal Government has said it is “treason” for the
Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi to incite people to
violence over the outcome of the February 25 presidential elections.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said
this in Washington DC during his official engagements with international media
NAN reports that Mohammed has so far engaged with outlets
like the Washington Post, Voice of America, Associated Press and Foreign Policy
During one of the interactions, the minister said it was
wrong for Obi to seek redress in court over the outcome of the polls and, in
another breadth, incite people to violence.
“Obi and his Vice, Datti Ahmed, cannot be threatening
Nigerians that if the President-elect, Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives
Congress (APC) is sworn in on May 29, it will be the end of democracy in
“This is treason. You cannot be inviting insurrection, and
this is what they are doing.
“Obi’s statement is that of a desperate person, he is not
the democrat that he claimed to be.
“A democrat should not believe in democracy only when he
wins the election,” Mohammed said.
