The media office of Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi has condemned the recent attack of Senator Dino Melaye on its presidential flagbearer.
Obi’s camp also advised Nigerians to ignore the rants of the former lawmaker.
Earlier, Melaye said it is impossible for Obi to win the forthcoming presidential election because it is not his time yet.
Reacting to this, Obi’s camp called Melaye, “the attack dog” of the Peoples Democratic Party flagbearer, Atiku Abubakar.
In a statement on Monday, the media office said the former Anambra governor will not respond to attacks from the camps of other candidates.
“Obi is not in the competition with them but with their Principals. He is issue-driven in his journey to Aso Rock to serve the people and rescue the country,” it said.
The office told citizens that Obi has many useful things to say and cannot waste time on “rabble rousers” who do not appreciate the enormity of the country’s challenges.
The statement noted that the LP candidate is at the service of Nigerian youths who are committed to this project and would not want distractions.
It said above all, his hard-earned outstanding credentials and reputations “are such that he cannot climb down so low to join them in the gutter”.
“For those who call the ‘Obidient’ media office seeking Obi’s response to Dino’s needless attacks on him, these are the reasons. If you join a mad man in a fight in the marketplace, you could be mistaken for one”, it added.
