The Media Office of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council (LPPC) has denied reports claiming that the British government has apologized to its Presidential candidate, Peter Obi, over his detention at Heathrow Airport last week.

Peter Obi, a former Governor of Anambra State, was detained on Friday, April 7th, by Immigration officials at Heathrow Airport over a case of duplicated identity.

However, in a statement issued to journalists, the Head of Obi-Datti Media, Diran Onifade, denied receiving any apology from the British government, adding that the Labour Party has moved past the incident.

The statement reads: “We have been receiving enquiries with regards to a so-called apology, purportedly issued by the British Government or any of its agencies, to our Principal Mr. Peter Obi, in respect of a routine Immigration engagement with him, as he arrived London, for a brief visit, last Friday, the 7th of April.”

“We would like to state emphatically that we are not aware of any such apology, and have not issued any statement whatsoever, in that regard.”

“While we continue to examine any dubious or political motive on the part of the perpetrators of the identity theft, we have every confidence in the ability of the British authorities to resolve the matter to a conclusion.”

“Mr. Peter Obi and the LP/PCC have since moved on from the incident and continue to be totally focused on the legal processes before the Election Petition Tribunal towards the recovery of our mandate, which we are firmly convinced was overwhelmingly expressed by voters in the Presidential election of February 25th.”

The Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council has urged the British government to resolve the matter around the embarrassment of Peter Obi, but it appears that the party is no longer interested in any apology from the UK government.

The statement by the LPPC is coming on the heels of reports that the British government had apologized to Peter Obi over his detention, which was described by the party as a case of identity theft.
