Valentine Obienyem, Media Adviser to the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has reacted to reports in a section of the media stating that the former governor of Anambra State issued a response to Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka.

Obieneyem stated that Obi did not respond to comments made about him by the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu, Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka describing him as being stingy.

KEMI FILANI NEWS had earlier reported that Mbaka said Obi is stingy and would not emerge as President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor in 2023.

Obi’s aide in a statement made on Thursday said his principal did not respond to the cleric’s comment and will not issue any statement concerning such matter in the future.

The statement read, “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.”
