Ihedioha never made any statement on Peter Obi, says Media aide
Recall that Ihedioha recently debunked media reports stating that he berated and talked down on Labour Party's presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi.
Media reports were making the rounds that the former deputy speaker referred to Obi as a 'crafty' man urging the Igbos to wait until 2031 for the presidency.
Ihedioha's media aide, Chibuike Onyeukwu in a statement made available to Legit.ng stated that the reports that his principal berated Obi were false.
