We won the presidential election and we’ll prove it – Peter Obi declares
The Presidential Flagbearer of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has declared that his party won the election and he will explore all legal and peaceful means to prove it.
Obi stated this during his first media briefing since the conclusion of the presidential election held on Saturday, February 25.
According to him, he was robbed of his mandate which he can only retrieve in a court of law. He further encouraged Nigerians to come out en masse to vote in the gubernatorial election on Saturday, March 11.
“We’ll explore all legal options to retrieve our mandate. We won the election. I’m fully committed to a better future for the country and nothing can stop that.
“For the election on Saturday go out there and vote. I’ll be part of it, I assure you.”
I have just finished addressing an international press conference. I urge Nigerians to remain resolute. We won this election and we will prove it to Nigerians. We shall reclaim our mandate via due process. Please do not despair! -PO pic.twitter.com/1O98Z6FF8Q
