The ruling party in a statement on Friday knocked the former Anambra governor for repeatedly condemning the victory of Presidential-elect, Bola Tinubu. Bayo Onanuga, Director of Media and Publicity, APC PCC, responded to some utterances Obi made during recent interviews on television stations. “The defeated Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi still goes around inflaming passions,” the spokesperson noted.
Onanuga said Obi has been spreading lies as if he is still campaigning for the highest office in the land, weeks after the exercise was concluded and a winner announced. About the LP flagbearer’s media rounds on Arise TV and Channels TV, Onanuga chided Obi for making “profoundly misleading, criminally false and inciting statements about the election that he lost woefully”.

Amaechi, who is the immediate past Minister of Transportation, addressed pressmen who expressed dissatisfaction with the process. Speaking after casting his votes, Amaechi stated that even though the election was peaceful in his community there are reports of the arrest of candidates of the APC for the polls.
Amaechi also alleged that the materials brought for the election at his unit were fake, but that they decided to vote to allow peace to reign. This is, however, coming as it was alleged that the APC Candidate for Ahoada East State Constituency 2 seat in the polls, Ukalikpe Napoleon, has been kidnapped.

He called on states to either fast-track the trial of the inmates awaiting trial or build holding facilities for them. He said the Federal Government was ready to provide personnel that would man the facilities. Aregbesola, who spoke through his media aide, Sola Fasure, in an interview with our correspondent on Friday, expressed the readiness of the Federal Government to work with states in decongesting the facilities.
He stated, “The most important step in decongestion has to be taken by the states and this is where we should all be looking into. More than 70 percent of inmates awaiting trials are state offenders. “The states can do either or both of two things. First, and more importantly, is accelerating the criminal trial process so that the cases are promptly dispensed with. Long and seemingly indeterminate trials are responsible for the disproportionate number of inmates awaiting trial.
