Speaking on the incident, Peter Obi said Atiku’s only sin is that he is the presidential candidate of the PDP. He said:
“His only offense is that he is the presidential candidate of an opposition party. It is not as if you are not allowed to do a routine check.
“What I am saying is that we have a country and what we need now is to be showing each other love and show the example to the younger ones that we are not divided, that we are together, that we want the country to work. It’s about the country.
“All these divisions are not necessary for our future. But what we do is that we are dividing the country. But you see people coming to a programme chanting war songs. It shouldn’t be.”
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) accused President Buhari of being behind the whole incident, they accused Buhari of ordering security agents to intimidate and harass its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar after arrival from Dubai.
However, the Federal Government dismissed allegation and said Atiku’s complaint is a mischievous attempt aimed at attracting media attention. Read the report HERE.
