Meanwhile, Senator Melaye took to social media to reply to Obi stating that the outburst was unwarranted and that his behaviour was unpresidential.

He said Obi's attitude shows that he is capable of physically assaulting his security detail if he becomes president.

Senator Melaye said:

"I didn't mention his name and I was really surprised to see that type of outburst from a presidential candidate, is that the type of president he is going to make? Just taking on people and showing unpresidential characteristics.
"I didn't do anything, that outburst is unwarranted, very unpresidential, unacceptable of a leader. A leader must be mature, one who wants to govern this country must be accommodating, must have a lot of patience, must have perseverance, these are the basic characteristics of a leader anywhere in the world."

He, however, maintained that he did not do anything or say anything that warranted the Labour Party presidential candidate to speak to him in such a manner.

Senator Melaye, in the video, immediately urged Obi to apologise to him over the outburst at the presidential debate.

He said:

"Next time you want to go for a debate, be as calm as the PDP vice-presidential candidate. That was very unpresidential and I deserve a serious apology."
