‘Treason allegation against me malicious,’ Peter Obi knocks Lai Mohammed
The presidential candidate of the Labour Party at the 2023 elections, Peter Obi has reacted to the treason allegation leveled against him by the Federal Government.
Obi made the rebuttal in reaction to an allegation of treason raised against him by the federal government through the minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
The LP candidate said, “In the past few days, I have observed various campaigns of calumny directed at my person, with the latest being allegations attributed to the information Minister, Lai Mohammed from Washington DC.
“It is most unfortunate that these consistent efforts to portray me quite contrary to what I am, and my core values, are coming from such high quarters. Minister Lai accusing me of stoking insurrection is totally malicious and fictitious.”
“I have never discussed or encouraged anyone to undermine the Nigerian state; I have never sponsored or preached any action against the Nigerian state. Those initiating these actions have increasingly used their official positions and agents to make false allegations against me.

I am committed to due process, and presently seeking redress in the Court.
“I urge those engaged in this demarketing process to stop presenting Nigeria in such bad light. Our future generations deserve a new Nigeria, where they can live a secure and decent life like their counterparts in other climes. It is possible.”
