The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has said he did not endorse a photo of himself on a praying mat.
Some supporters of Obi had in a bid to raise awareness for him amongst the Muslims in the North, manipulated photos of the former governor of Anambra State on a praying mat.
But Obi tweeted, “The inclusion of my picture on the praying mat by a support group was misguided, even with the best of intentions. It didn’t emanate from my campaign team. I have deep respect for the Muslim faith and indeed, for every other religion.
“We will never mock any faith, ethnicity or gender. We are one Nigeria.”
