Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate in the 2023 general election, has replied to a recent remark made against him by Senate President Godswill Akpabio.

Akpabio recently stated that Peter Obi did not win the presidential election in Lagos and Ebonyi States, claiming that the elections were manipulated.

He said, “INEC must explain to us how you [Tinubu] would lose the election in Lagos during the presidential election. And Lagos was your base. In fact, one of the other explanations INEC will make to you is how you’ll win all the federal houses in Ebonyi State, and we won the three Senate seats in Ebonyi State, and they said you didn’t get 25 percent.”

On Parallel Fact, the former Anambra State Governor was asked to respond to Akpabio’s statements regarding his election, and Obi stated that he does not deal with unusual individuals.

“The Senate President is an uncommon person, everything about him is uncommon. I don’t deal with uncommon people.

“I deal with common people…when uncommon people talk, common people keep quiet.

“I won the election not just in Lagos and Ebonyi, I won the elections in Nigeria. If not for Nigeria being an uncommon place we all know what happened,” Obi said.
