But in his reaction, Yunusa Tanko, the spokesperson for the ObiDatti campaign organisation dissociated Obi and the party from the protest.
Vanguard reports that Tanko said:
“There is no presidential candidate that has been in full control and admonishing his supporters to be calm than Obi and Datti. The only thing is we are not satisfied with the process that led to the declaration of Tinubu as president-elect.
“We have raised fundamental issues about the process and the process is part of the democratic process. Obi has not sponsored anybody to do anything, rather he has urged them to be calm and follow the rule of law. However, if Nigerian people are protesting the injury done to them, they have the right. Nobody is sponsoring anybody.”
