In a statement posted to Twitter, Festus Egwarewa Keyamo, a Nigerian attorney, journalist, and human rights activist and member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), stated:
Respectfully, Mr. Peter Obi I apologize, but the rationale behind US Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken's request for @officialABAT's assistance and cooperation is clear.
It is clear that your party and your supporters exaggerated the impact that their clamor and outbursts following the election had on the world at large. No, not quite as much of an impact as you may have hoped.
You're in luck since the US has dealt with a lot of opposition leaders around the world and is very good at separating fact from fiction. They are aware that your message of "religious war" could not have prevailed in a culture as complex as Nigeria.
They know you’re just a splinter of the main opposition, the PDP, so it amounts to delusions of grandeur to think that you won when you actually came third.
