Information Nigeria reports that Morka’s reaction stems from Obi’s allegation that the APC and its supporters have been attacking his personality over the petition he filed against the president-elect, Tinubu at the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC).
He however described the accusations by the LP presidential candidate as ridiculous.
“Peter Obi is really crossing the line, the campaigns are over, he needs to relax and allow his lawyers handle his case at the tribunal, accusing the APC of attacking his personal life is ridiculous.
“Obi has been way too sanctimonious for someone who volunteered to venture into politics and run for the presidency.
“He did not win the elections, he came a distant third, and he has made a political capital of exploiting people’s vulnerabilities,” Morka said.
