The All Progressives Congress National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka, has tackled the Labour Party presidential candidate in the February 25th election to relax and allow his lawyers to do their job. Morka said that Peter Obi is crossing the line, and that he already has a case before the election petition tribunal, so he needs to relax.
Speaking during a recent interview on Arise News, Morka said that Peter Obi came a distant third and did not win the election. He said that the elections are over and people have moved on, and that the President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, will be sworn into office in a few days.
He said - "We have a President-elect who, hopefully, in a few days will be inaugurated in accordance with our Constitution. I think Peter Obi, all of this period I've hesitated to really take issues with him directly, but I think that he's really crossing the line. Campaigns are over, he needs to just take a chill pill and rest, he has a case before the tribunal, he needs to allow his lawyers do their job now."
Speaking further, Morka added - "I think Peter Obi has been way too sanctimonious for someone who voluntarily got involved in a political process, and offered himself to compete for presidency. What did you expect? It's a serious business. People say it's even a murky business, but it is."
He said that there is no country in the world where the competition for presidency is a walk in the park.
