The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Datti Baba-Ahmed has called out Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress for dismissing Peter Obi and saying he won't mention his name.

Baba-Ahmed also accused the ruling party of using false information as its campaign strategy against Obi. He made the comments on Thursday at a Labour Party press conference held in Abuja.

Baba-Ahmed said, “Earlier attempts to discredit the Obi’s candidacy through fabricated allegations of demolition of mosques, internal deportation of northerners, issuance of ID cards to northerners, and ethnic hostilities were all conclusively proven to be false and without basis.

“As if those were not enough, just a few days ago, the presidential candidate of the APC speaking in Delta State, and referring to our presidential candidate, said that it was a disgrace to mention his name. While our candidate is quite comfortable with not being mentioned, it is most unpresidential, indecorous and disrespectful from the candidate who claims (its) his turn at Nigerian Presidency.

“APCs strategy against Peter Obi now appears very clearly centered on promoting falsehood, in addition to empty and derogatory personal attacks, and of course this is because they can find no contentious points of negativity to push.”
