As reported by the Vanguard newspaper, Obi, during an interview on a live telecast on Monday, March 13, disclosed that he has nothing against his rival Tinubu.

Presidential election: Group berates US govt’s stance on exercise
In another development, the Centre for Reform and Public Advocacy criticised the United States government for congratulating the president-elect, Bola Tinubu.
According to the group, the US government should have waited for the courts to decide before congratulating the All Progressives Congress' presidential candidate.
Ifeanyi Okechukwu, the group's spokesman, said the electoral commission failed to upload results from polling units in real time as stipulated by law; hence the exercise was flawed.
