The presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the February 25 election, Peter Obi, has replied a former governor of Enugu State, Chimaroke Nnamani, who recently lost his seat in the Red Chamber to the Labour Party’s candidate, Kelvin Chukwu.
Nnamani, who was seeking a return ticket to represent Enugu East in the National Assembly, had blamed Obi for his defeat and accused him of playing “wicked and dangerous politics.”
Responding in a letter to the former governor on Tuesday, however, Obi said Nnamani must be mistaking him with someone else.
Obi maintained that throughout his campaign across the federation, he was never involved in playing ethnic and religious politics, adding that he was surprised at the former governor for making such remarks.
He further advised Nnamani to desist from such “senseless and unsubstantiated allegations just to dent one’s image.”
