The Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, expressed his disappointment at the Supreme Court’s judgment, alleging that it prioritized political expediency over justice, dashing the hopes of many Nigerians.
He made this statement during a press conference held in Abuja on Monday.
While addressing the media, Peter Obi, the standard bearer of the Labour Party, and his vice presidential candidate, Dr. Datti Baba-Ahmed, emphasized their commitment to democratic principles. They indicated that they had exhausted all legal avenues to challenge the outcome of the 2023 general elections.
Peter Obi highlighted the party’s readiness to bring the message of a new Nigeria to the grassroots, underscoring their dedication to advocating for change.
On Thursday, October 26, the Supreme Court rendered its verdict, upholding President Bola Tinubu’s victory. The court declared the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate as the valid winner of the presidential election that took place on February 25.
This development continues to be a subject of intense discussion within the Nigerian political landscape as various stakeholders react to the Supreme Court’s decision.
