PDP‘s Vice Presidential candidate, Peter Obi who was labelled a ‘bigot’ by Governor Nasir over a 2014 incident, has finally reacted to the statement.

Peter Obi who answered questions from journalists over the tweet at a youth programme in Nnewi, Anambra State on Saturday, expressed shock and further stated that he would only pray for and encourage him to concentrate on doing those things that will better lots of Nigerians rather than engaging in hate speeches.

He said, “This is suggesting that it was what he sat down to think of rather than thinking about how to solve the many problems plaguing the country.

“What His Excellency, Gov. Nasir Ahmad El Rufai said about me has been brought to my attention. I believe that as we grow older and are saddled with more responsibilities, we are expected to become circumspect in our thinking and avoid recklessness in our speeches and utterances.

“How does the circumstance he referred to relate to bigotry to warrant such a label?

“All I do for people like is to pray for them and encourage them to concentrate on doing those things that will better the lots of Nigerians rather than engage in hate speeches that will divide and destroy the country.

“At this difficult times in our country, when thousands of our brothers and sisters across ethnic divide are killed all over the country, including innocent citizens in state; millions of our children from all the parts of the country are out of school; millions of 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 solutions to the numerous problems of our dear country.

“I am aware that during the said election he referred to, security agents merely restricted his movement because he had no business being in Anambra as I would not have been in on an election day.”

The former governor of Anambra State further appealed to Nigerians, especially those in positions of authority, to avoid what he called “the dominance of the vice of hate”
