Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi's media office has responded to comments made by former lawmaker Dino Melaye.
Melaye while talking about the former Anambra State Governor had said he could not be the president of the country yet as his time has not come.
"Peter Obi is a fantastic Nigerian. I have tremendous respect for him, but this is not his time.
"He doesn’t have what it takes now to unify this country. Before you start talking about the economy, you need peace. You need to build trust among Nigerians..", Melaye had stated.
Reacting via a statement released on Monday, Obi's camp advised Nigerians to ignore Melaye's words.
“No matter the quantum of untruths and falsity the attack dogs of the other candidates dish out, Peter Obi will never respond to them.
“Obi is not in the competition with them but with their Principals. He is issue-driven in his journey to Aso Rock to serve the people and rescue the country", it said.
"For those who call the ‘Obidient’ media office seeking Obi’s response to Dino’s needless attacks on him, these are the reasons. If you join a mad man in a fight in the marketplace, you could be mistaken for one". it added.
