Labour Party Confident Peter Obi Will Win at Tribunal, Counters Tinubu’s Claims



The Labour Party (LP) has responded to the statement from the Presidency, which suggested that President Bola Tinubu is not concerned about the forthcoming verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, scheduled to be announced on Wednesday.

According to ThePressNG, the LP confidently asserted that their Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi, will emerge victorious in the election.

The Presidency’s position was articulated by Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, who stated that Tinubu remains calm and unworried about the verdict, asserting that he had already won the presidential poll held on February 25th.

However, LP spokesman Obiora Ifoh said the party is sure that its candidate, Obi, will emerge victorious.

We are positive that the judgement will favour the Labour Party and our presidential candidate, Peter Obi,” Ifoh said in a statement. “We are also positive that the will of the people will prevail.

Most Nigerians have waited this long and their wishes will be granted.

“The mandate freely expressed on February 25 will be returned to the rightful winner of the election.”

The tribunal is hearing petitions filed by Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), and the Allied Peoples Movement (APM), challenging Tinubu’s victory in the presidential election.

The verdict is expected to be announced on Wednesday, September 6.
