Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate for the 2023 elections, has expressed faith in the judiciary to deliver justice in the case challenging the outcome of the February 25 election.
Obi finished third in the election results announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The former Anambra State Governor, on the other hand, rejected the results and went to court to challenge and reclaim his ‘stolen mandate.’
On Tuesday, Obi and the Labour Party called their first witness in court against the election winner, President Bola Tinubu.
Shortly after the court session, Obi reiterated his commitment to using all legal means to resolve the electoral process in his favor through the courts.
He also urged his supporters to keep the peace and remain dedicated to the vision of a new Nigeria.
The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) resumed sitting today. Datti Baba-Ahmed and I were present in court, with members of LP and the Obidients family.
I have maintained that diligently following the rule of law in our quest to resolve the electoral impasse remains sacrosanct. The judiciary is part of our democratic process and a critical governance tool which must be held in high esteem.
As we journey through the judicial process, I urge all Nigerians to remain committed to the vision of a New Nigeria. Nigeria remains our common patrimony and in unity, we must sacrifice to make it better. -PO.
