ON OBI SHUNNING JOURNALISTS
(Published in Thisday of last Saturday)
I read your publication in Thisday newspaper. I want it to be on record that the report that Mr. Peter Obi shunned journalist unusually and refused to make comments on President Mohammadu Buhari was as misleading as it was false.
Consequently, when some journalists approached him, he jokingly waved them of by the hand, telling them that he was at the event just for a few minutes . As usual, and in sync with his high morals and manners, he did so very courteously. Because of the constraint of time, he did not stay to present one of the awards as earlier requested by Thisday Family.
He did not make further comments that would warrant the embarrassing publication suggesting in any way, his dislike for the President or any person for that matter.
Elections have come and gone. While remaining faithful to his friends and political associates, Obi has been consistent in urging prayers and support for those in authority, especially Mr. President, to lead us aright because we have no other countries and must join hands to build our country for posterity.
