Obi sets record straight, says I’m challenging both election process & declaration
The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Gregory Obi, has set the record straight respecting his stance on the presidential election held recently on February 25, 2023.
Mr. Peter Obi has been quoted as saying that he is not challenging the outcome of the presidential election, just the process”.
Reacting on his Twitter handle on Tuesday, the former Anambra State Governor said categorically that such is not the case.
He stated, rather, that he is challenging both the election process itself, as well as the declaration.
“Following my response to a question while appearing on Arise TV earlier today, I want to state categorically that at the Presidential Elections Tribunal (PET), I am challenging the INEC electoral process that led to the declaration of Tinubu as president-elect as well as the Declaration itself.”
Peter Obi, it could be recalled, finished in the third position, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which declared Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) winner.
Obi, however, rejected the results and insists that he won the election but was rather short-changed by the electoral umpire.
He is billed to submit his petition to the Tribunal on or before March 19, 2023. Read more.
