The Vice Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Peter Obi, has said that Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s statement about him is reckless, inexorably moving the country closer to catastrophe.
The former Anambra governor expressed surprise at the statement credited to the Kaduna State governor, who, referred to Obi as, “ a tribal bigot.”
Obi, said he does not have a hand in the Kaduna governor’s travail in 2010. He said El-Rufai may have been stopped because his motive for coming to Anambra on election day was unclear.
“At this difficult time in our country, when thousands of our brothers and sisters across ethnic divide are killed all over the country, including innocent citizens in Kaduna state; millions of our children from all the parts of the country are out of school; millions of Nigerian youths from all the parts of the country are without jobs, our pre-occupation, especially among those that are in government should not be making reckless speeches.
“What our leaders should be doing today is seeking solution to numerous problems of our dear country, he said.
