The Federal Government has said it is “treason” for the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi to incite people to violence over the outcome of the February 25 presidential elections.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said this in Washington DC during his official engagements with international media organisations.

NAN reports that Mohammed has so far engaged with outlets like the Washington Post, Voice of America, Associated Press and Foreign Policy Magazine.

During one of the interactions, the minister said it was wrong for Obi to seek redress in court over the outcome of the polls and, in another breadth, incite people to violence.

“Obi and his Vice, Datti Ahmed, cannot be threatening Nigerians that if the President-elect, Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is sworn in on May 29, it will be the end of democracy in Nigeria.

“This is treason. You cannot be inviting insurrection, and this is what they are doing.

“Obi’s statement is that of a desperate person, he is not the democrat that he claimed to be.

“A democrat should not believe in democracy only when he wins the election,” Mohammed said.

  1. That is in a situation where the elections is truly free and fair. Buhari was in court several times, and made terrible comments when he lost elections, until he finally won in 2015. In Nigeria, people’s rights are not given on a platter of gold, they struggle to get it. He who feels it, knows it better.
