Why I Am Personally Heading To Court Today With My Lawyers – Peter Obi

The Presidential candidate of Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi says he has cancelled his earlier scheduled visit to some states to campaign for the party’s governorship and State house of Assembly candidates so as to personally appear in court with his lawyers today, Wednesday.

Obi said he will be in court over the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)’s refusal to allow Labour Party to inspect election materials (including BVAS) from the 25th February presidential elections as approved by a court of competent jurisdiction.

Obi in a series of tweet wrote;

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!.

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.
