In response to an appeal extended by Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), urging his involvement in the ongoing legal challenge to President Tinubu’s credentials, Peter Obi, the presidential candidate representing the Labour Party (LP), has affirmed his commitment to the pursuit of justice through the judicial system. Obi expressed his determination to reclaim what he believes to be his stolen electoral mandate, with the Supreme Court being the arena for this pivotal legal battle.
Obi’s resolute stance on the matter was conveyed via an official statement issued on Thursday. This statement bore the signature of Obiora Ifoh, who holds the position of National Publicity Secretary within the Labour Party.
In Obi’s own words, as conveyed by Ifoh, “The LP standard bearer is currently in the Supreme Court seeking to reclaim his stolen mandate, and he is focused on that.” This succinctly underscores Obi’s unwavering dedication to the legal process in his quest for justice and electoral legitimacy.
Furthermore, Ifoh expounded upon Obi’s broader commitment to promoting a just and virtuous society. Ifoh stated, “He has been in the vanguard of ensuring a just nation where justice must be the watchword, and he will not stop until Nigeria achieves the leadership it truly deserves.” These words encapsulate Obi’s vision of leadership characterized by integrity and honor, emphasizing the pivotal role of exemplary leadership in Nigeria’s progress.
Ifoh went on to emphasize the importance of leaders serving as role models and champions of transparency. He highlighted Obi’s public disclosure of his own credentials as a testament to his commitment to these principles. Ifoh conveyed, “Nigeria will get better when men of integrity and honor drive the affairs of the nation.”
Ifoh extended a welcoming message to any other individuals or entities willing to join the Labour Party in their pursuit of a just and righteous nation, asserting, “We therefore welcome every other interest willing to join us in our pursuit of a nation where justice shall reign.” This call for collaboration underscores the LP’s commitment to a Nigeria guided by the principles of justice and good governance.
