Callistus Okafor, the factional chairman of the Labour Party, stated that prior to Peter Obi joining the Labour Party, he had already been involved in a court case for six months.
During an interview with Arise News on the Newsnight program, Okafor posed a rhetorical question when asked if he was willing to settle out of court to avoid affecting the party's presidential candidate's chances at the tribunal.
Okafor emphasized that he is known for being a peaceful person and not someone who causes trouble. He clarified that he is not opposed to reaching a settlement out of court. In fact, he attempted to engage in dialogue with Peter Obi upon his arrival and made several phone calls to him, but Obi did not respond.
"I filed the case in the Federal High Court on December 23, 2021, while Peter Obi joined the Labour Party on May 28, 2022. This indicates that I had been in court for six months prior to his arrival. He was aware of the issue, so why didn't Obi take the opportunity to meet and hear from me, as Donald Duke and Mimiko did? Unfortunately, Peter Obi did not."
Furthermore, Okafor acknowledged that it is not obligatory for Peter Obi to reach out to him if he does not wish to do so, as he has already made numerous attempts to initiate communication.
