In the interview published on Tuesday, September 19, he said:

"Wole Soyinka has stated the truth of the matter; even though he is not a lawyer, Soyinka should be known as a man who is never flippant with any opinion that he offers in the public space. And I am so sure before he offered that opinion, he must have sat down some lawyers who are conversant with the case, and would have heard from them.
"But the truth of the matter is that the petition filed by Peter Obi and other parties are in the public domain. We have all read all these documents.

"If you take Peter Obi’s petition on its merit, there is no pleading that supports the claim that Peter Obi won the majority of votes lawful cast, no complaint was made against the scores that were attributed to Atiku, so how is he going to overtake Atiku who beat him with over 1 million votes to emerge as a winner of an election, even if you take the votes of Asiwaju out of it. I think we can say that Peter Obi won the election on social media but lost at the polls."
