peter obi says we won the election and we will prove it

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo says it is confidence that the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, would reclaim his mandate in court.

Peter Obi claims his mandate was stolen by Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the just-concluded presidential election held on February 25.

After Tinubu’s victory, the LP presidential candidate vowed to approach the election tribunal to challenge the outcome of the election.

We Are Behind Peter Obi

Speaking to Saturday Sun, National Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze, Dr. Alex Ogbonnia, says Ohanaeze is willing to go the full length with Peter Obi in the battle to reclaim the mandate given to him by Nigerians at the February 25 election.

He says Nigerians from across the country believed in the LP candidate’s message that a new Nigeria was possible, hence, their massive support for the Obi-Datti candidature.

He also hailed people of the South-East for coming out to vote massively for the Labour Party candidate despite intimidation.

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo spokesman said: “I’m happy Nigeria is moving away from political apathy to a participant political culture.

“It is a plus because in the third world that participation has been a problem and you can see they participated actively.

“They couldn’t be suppressed or intimidated.

“Rather, they defied all the threats from all the external forces and came even under sunshine and rain.

“They stood strongly and expressed their wish through their votes.

We were impressed because in the past, they did not have confidence in the electoral system and to that extent there is this political apathy. But they came out fully and voted”.

Obi Will Win In Court

He stated that Peter Obi was a meticulous person whose personal conviction might not be called to question, adding that the former Anambra governor would emerge victorious at the courts.

Ogbonnia said: “I have confidence in that because when he was deprived of his victory sometime in Anambra State, he struggled and assured people that he would recover it, later on, he recovered that mandate. The same way, it is like history repeating itself.

“Anybody who has known Peter Obi will know that he is always sure of whatever he is doing.

“He is conscious of whatever position or decision he is taking.

“Obi is not a man of frivolities or a man who takes decisions anyhow. He takes a thorough review of his decisions before making it public.

In fact, I would rather say that Ohanaeze Ndigbo endorses the speech by Peter Obi in pursuing this case and to make sure that we follow it to its logical conclusion and we are very confident that he will win”.
