I Will Go All The Way To Regain My Mandate – Peter Obi Insists
Over a month after the February 25, 2023 Presidential election, Mr. Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, has maintained that he would exhaust all the legal channels to regain the ‘mandate Nigerians gave to him’.
Obi said this while meeting with the Anambra State Labour Party Stakeholders in Awka on Sunday.
Peter Obi wrote on his social media handle;
Earlier today, 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.
Recall that Obi is currently contesting the process with which the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Bola Tinubu of the APC winner of the last presidential election.
Obi has approached the presidential election petition tribunal, seeking the disqualification of Tinubu, seeking also that the court declare him (Peter Obi) winner of the election, among other prayers.
Meanwhile, the tribunal has fixed May 10, 12 and 13, 2023 for hearing on the matter.
