The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has denied receiving any letter from the British Gov’t in respect of him being illegally detained by the immigration officers at Heathrow Airport in London.
This was after the Spokesperson of the Atiku Abubakar presidential campaign, Daniel Bwala, said on his Twitter handle, on Thursday, that the UK Gov’t has apologized to Obi.
On his Twitter handle, he wrote: “British government apologised to Peter Obi for illegally serving him a detention note.
“Can you now put a ‘respek’ on his name? We are now waiting for US government to apologise to Tinubu for illegally collecting the forfeited dollars.
“Asiwaju fans oya start throwing the insults.”
Reacting to this, the Head, Obi-Datti Media, Diran Onifade, through a press release on Thursday, said the party and it’s principal have not received or issued any statement in this regard.
He added that the party is still trying to examine the perpetrators of the identity theft, stressing that it has confidence in the British authority to resolve the matter.
He stated, “We have been receiving enquiries with regards to a so called apology, purportedly issued by the British Government or any of its agencies, to our Principal Mr Peter Obi, in respect of a routine Immigration engagement with him, as he arrived London, for a brief visit, last Friday, the 7th of April.
“We would like to state emphatically that we are not aware of any such apology, and have not issued any statement whatsoever, in that regard. While we continue to examine any dubious or political motive, on the part of the perpetrators of the identity theft, we have every confidence in the ability of the British authorities to resolve the matter, to conclusion,” Onifade said.
He further said that the former Anambra State Governor and the LP/PCC have since moved on from the incident and continue to be totally focused, on the legal processes before the Election Petition Tribunal towards the recovery of their mandate, which they are convinced, was overwhelmingly expressed by voters, in the Presidential election of February 25.
