The Labour Party Presidential Candidate Peter Obi, has announced that he’ll be heading to court personally over INEC’s refusal to allow his party access to election materials.
Obi stated that he had to change his initial plans of going to support the governorship candidates across the states as this matter was more pressing.
He urged his followers to vote for the Labour Party in the forthcoming elections and to remain calm while he fought for his mandate.
Obi also cautioned obidients against coming to the court and causing a ruckus in the court premises and environs.
I am supposed to commence our whistle-stop campaign for our various Labour Party Governorship and State Assembly Candidates today. Initially, my trip was to take me to Nasarawa, Lagos, Enugu, Abia, Delta, Edo, Rivers, Plateau, Borno, etc.
However, following INEC’s refusal to allow our party to inspect the materials (including BVAS) from the 25th February presidential elections, I am personally heading to the Court today with our lawyers.
As we pursue due process and defer to the rule of law, I urge all the OBidients in the various states to continue campaigning for our candidates, namely, Gbadebo Rhodes Vivour in Lagos, Chijoke Edeoga in Enugu, Patrick Dakum in Plateau, Alex Otti in Abia, Ken Pela in Delta, Ibrahim Mshelia in Borno, to name just a few. It is also imperative that Obidients vote for candidates with Competence, Character, Capacity, and Compassion. I remain committed and will give more attention to our mission of retrieving our mandate. A new Nigeria is possible! -PO
As we go about seeking redress for our stolen mandate, I plead with OBldients to respect the sanctity of the Court premises and give our legal team the space and peaceful environment to carry out their duties.
The Court Premises is not and should not be turned into a rally ground. I urge the Obidients to go about their businesses peacefully. – PO
