Nigeria Election: Obi not mature, should apologise to me – Melaye


The Spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party presidential campaign council, Senator Dino Melaye, on Monday, reacted to the statement made by Labor Party’s pressure candidate, Peter Gregory Obi.

The former member of the red chamber said ; “i did not do anything to” the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.

Obi got angry on Sunday night and blew hot at Melaye during the presidential town hall session organised by Arise TV in Abuja.

Melaye demands apology from Obi, says a person contesting for the country’s President must be ready to tolerate.

“He was not provoked, I was seating far opposite the top seat where they were sitting. I didn’t mention his name. And I was really surprised to see that type of outburst from a presidential candidate. Is that the type of president he is going to make? Just taking on people and showing unpresidential characteristics?

“I didn’t do anything. So that outburst is unwarranted, very unpresidential, unacceptable of a leader.

“A leader must be matured.

One who wants to govern this country must be accommodating, must have a lot of patience, must have perseverance. These are basic characteristics of leadership anywhere in the world,” Melaye said in a video posted on his Twitter page on Monday.

“You want to be President of Nigeria and you are reacting in such a manner in public? This one will slap ADC for office as president. So I want to clear the air, there was nothing, I didn’t do anything to him,” he said.
