NAN reports that Mohammed spoke in Washington DC during his official engagements with some international media organisations on the just concluded 2023 polls.
The minister accused Obi of inciting people to violence while seeking redress in court over the outcome of the election.
In a recent interview, Datti Baba-Ahmed, vice-presidential candidate of the LP, had said Bola Tinubu did not meet the constitutional requirements to become Nigeria’s president.
The LP vice-presidential candidate had asked the chief justice of Nigeria (CJN) not to swear in Tinubu as president.
His comments had elicited widespread criticism with some stakeholders calling on security agencies to take action.
“This is treason. You cannot be inviting insurrection, and this is what they are doing.
“Obi’s statement is that of a desperate person, he is not a democrat that he claimed to be.
“A democrat should not believe in democracy only when he wins election.”
He said they both failed to meet the constitutional requirements to be declared as president.
“The constitution has stringent criteria for anybody who wants to be president of the country,” he said.
“Only the president-elect met the criteria by scoring 8.79 million votes and having one-quarter of all the votes cast in 29 states of the federation.
“Peter Obi, while complaining of fraud, has not disowned his victory in Lagos.”
“We have come here to balance that skewed narratives and to tell the world unambiguously that the just concluded general elections in Nigeria is the fairest, most transparent and authentic in the history of Nigeria,” he said.
