The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi has indicated that the British Government had not sent any apology letter to him over his detention by immigration officials at Heathrow Airport in London
Obi was quizzed by the UK immigration officials in London after alleged impersonation to smear his reputation
On Thursday rummours making the round had indicated that the British Government had apologized to him.
However, a statement on Thursday by the Head, Obi-Datti Media, Diran Onifade said
While we continue to examine any dubious or political motive, on the part of the perpetrators of the identity theft, we have every confidence in the ability of the British authorities to resolve the matter, to conclusion.
“We have been receiving enquiries with regards to a so called apology, purportedly issued by the British Government or any of its agencies, to our Principal Mr Peter Obi, in respect of a routine Immigration engagement with him, as he arrived London, for a brief visit, last Friday, the 7th of April.
“We would like to state emphatically that we are not aware of any such apology, and have not issued any statement whatsoever, in that regard.
“Mr Peter Obi and the LP/PCC have since moved on from the incident and continue to be totally focused, on the legal processes before the Election Petition Tribunal towards the recovery of our mandate, which we are firmly convinced, was overwhelmingly expressed by voters, in the Presidential election of February 25th. “
