Presidential Tribunal: LP presidential candidate Peter Obi vows to reclaim mandate through legal means



Presidential Tribunal: LP presidential candidate Peter Obi vows to reclaim mandate through legal means

Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s Presidential candidate in the 2023 election, has stated that he will pursue legal avenues to reclaim the people’s mandate.

He made the assertion during an LP stakeholders’ meeting in Awka, the Anambra state capital, where he promised to explore every option available and follow it to its logical conclusion in court.

The former governor of Anambra State said the meeting with stakeholders was productive, and they discussed moving the party forward.

Obi came third in the February 25th presidential election, behind Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, who won, and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, who came second.

Obi wrote: “Earlier, I interacted with the Anambra State Labour Party Stakeholders in Awka. The meeting was quite animated and constructive. Part of our discussions centred on the way forward for the party.

“I reassured them of my readiness to go all the way, explore every available legal option to ensure that we get our mandate back. I appreciated all their support so far, as I assured them of mine. PO.”

Obi had earlier appealed to his supporters not to invade court premises as hearing on electoral matters commenced.

He asked his supporters known as “Obidients” to give his legal team space and a peaceful environment to work in ensuring his case goes well in court.

He also opposed the idea of a rally or protest being organised around the courthouse. Obi’s statement shows his commitment to exploring all legal options available to him to reclaim what he believes is the people’s mandate.

He said; “As we go about seeking redress for our stolen mandate, I plead with OBIdients 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.”
