Peter Obi described claims of snubbing the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III; driving Hausas away from Anambra State, shunning the then Minister of Finance, Dr. Shamsuddeen Usman’s attempt at mediation and not visiting schools in the North as sheer fabrication, wicked and inhuman, the allegation being circulated by the All Progressives Congress, APC.

He further disclosed that the irony of the claims is that, he has been friends with His Eminence, the Sultan right from his first year at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, in 1980 through his tenure as Nigeria’s Defence Attaché in Pakistan till date.

“As a matter of fact, the mosque at Onitsha was destroyed before I became governor.

The irony of this concoction is that I have been a friend of His Eminence, the Sultan right from my first year at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, in 1980 through his tenure as Nigeria’s Defence Attaché in Pakistan till the present.

The fact is that the visit of his Eminence, during which I was alleged to have snubbed him was purely a courtesy call after which I personally accompanied him to see the Obi of Onitsha, Obi Alfred Achebe with whom he had a meeting. I also requested His Eminence to visit the Hausa community in the state during which I offered to rebuild and subsequently gave them the funds for that purpose.”  Obi said
