The Labour Party Presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi, has debunked the rumour making the round that he has replied to the Enugu-based Catholic Priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, for calling him a stingy and a cursed man.
It was gathered that Fr. Mbaka, has declared that Mr Peter Obi, can never be President of Nigeria for being a stingy man.
Mbaka made the declaration at his Adoration Ministry, Enugu State, Nigeria.
He said unless God ceases to exist, Obi would never smell the seat of the President.
He said it was better to have an old man as President than a ‘stingy young man’.
However, Obi, in a release made available to journalists in Awka, on Thursday, by his media aide, Valentine Obienyem, said Mr Peter Obi did not and is not planning to issue any reply.
According to the release; “Our attention has 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.”
