Peter Obi, Labour Party presidential candidate, has debunked reports that he has replied Catholic Priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, for calling him a stingy and cursed man.
It had been reported that Mbaka, at his Adoration Ministry in Enugu State, declared that unless God ceases to exist, Obi would never smell the seat of the president.
According to him, it was better to have an old man as president than a ‘stingy young man’
However, a report of a purported response from Peter Obi had emerged on Thursday.
Reacting, a statement issued by Obi’s media aide, Valentine Obienyem on Thursday, said the presidential candidate is not planning to issue any response to the cleric.
“Our attention has been drawn to a statement credited to Mr Peter Obi as his reply to Fr. Ejike Mbaka.
We wish to state for the record that Mr Peter Obi did not and is not planning to issue any reply.
We advise that any medium trying to publish such an unsigned letter should clarify its authenticity from Mr Obi’s Media Office.”
