It was reported that Peter Obi got angry on Sunday night and lashed out at Melaye during the presidential town hall session organized by Arise TV in Abuja.

Melaye however, demanded an apology from Obi, saying a presidential candidate must be calm.

Melaye in a video posted on his Twitter page on Monday said he “did not do anything to” Obi.

“He was not provoked, I was seated far opposite the top seat where they were sitting. I didn’t mention his name. And I was really surprised to see that type of outburst from a presidential candidate. Is that the type of president he is going to make? Just taking on people and showing unpresidential characteristics?

“I didn’t do anything. So that outburst is unwarranted, very unpresidential, and unacceptable of a leader.

“A leader must be mature. One who wants to govern this country must be accommodating, must have a lot of patience, and must have perseverance. These are basic characteristics of leadership anywhere in the world,” Melaye said.

“You want to be President of Nigeria and you are reacting in such a manner in public? This one will slap ADC for office as president. So I want to clear the air, there was nothing, I didn’t do anything to him,” he said.

Melaye went further to say Obi was “so provoked” and carried away by the performance of Governor Okowa, adding that he deserves “a serious apology” from the former Anambra State governor.

Melaye said Obi should be calm like the Delta State Governor.

“He was so provoked and so carried away by the performance of Governor Okowa that he was saying that somebody outside is from ANPP. Does that make any sense, is there any party like the ANPP in Nigeria today?

“Next time when you want to go for a debate, be as calm as Governor Okowa…but that was very unpresidential and I deserve a serious apology,” he said.
