The vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Peter Obi, says the only reason security operatives searched the private jet of Atiku Abubakar, is because he is the presidential candidate of an opposition party.
Concise News had reported that security operatives allegedly searched the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on arrival from Dubai on Sunday.
Reacting on the matter when he featured on a programme on Arise Television, Obi accused the current administration of harassing its opponents.
His words: “His only offence is that he is the presidential candidate of an opposition party. It is not as if you are not allowed to do a routine check,” Obi said.
“I’ve been privileged to have travelled with a number of high-profile people in the past in a private jet where they gave me a lift. I’ve not experienced what was experienced. What I am saying is that we have a country and what we need now is to be showing each other love and show the example to the younger ones that we are not divided, that we are together, that we want the country to work. It’s about the country.
“All these divisions is not necessary for our future. But what we do is that we are dividing the country. But you see people coming to a programme chanting war songs. It shouldn’t be,” Obi added.
