Senator Dino Melaye, the official spokesperson for the Presidential Campaign Council under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has criticized Peter Obi's legal team for being composed entirely of Igbos.
In a recent tweet from his official Twitter handle, Melaye stated that Atiku Abubakar's legal team is the only presidential team that has representation from all six geo-political zones in Nigeria, emphasizing that Abubakar is a unifier. Melaye went on to claim that Bola Ahmed Tinubu's legal team is predominantly Yoruba, while Obi's team is exclusively Igbo.
Melaye's tweet sparked a variety of reactions from concerned Nigerians, who shared their opinions on his comment section. It should be noted that after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressive Congress (APC) as the winner and president-elect in the recent general presidential elections, Peter Gregory Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, announced his intention to take legal action against the electoral bodies, alleging that the results collated during the elections were compromised.
