Mr Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party–LP, has rejected the request by Atiku Abubakar, PDP’s presidential candidate to join him in the ongoing battle against President Bola Tinubu over his forged certificate from Chicago State University—CSU.

Recall that the former vice president had during an international press conference in Abuja on Thursday, called on Obi and his NNPP counterpart, Mr Kwankwaso to join his fight for justice.

Though, This is coming following the revelations made after Chicago State University released Tinubu’s academic records to Atiku Abubakar.

Atiku, who declared that Tinubu forged the certificate he submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission—INEC, made it clear that he intended to employ the academic records provided by CSU as part of his litigation against the President in the Supreme Court.

But while responding to the call, Obi in a statement issued by the spokesman of the Labour Party, Obiora Ifoh said he is currently busy seeking to reclaim his stolen mandate at the Supreme Court.

Part of the statement reads, “The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi is presently in the Supreme Court seeking to reclaim his stolen mandate and he is focused on that.

“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 a leadership it truly deserves.

“Obi has pontificated severally on the need for leaders to be good role models and to live a life worthy of emulation. This he has done by publicly putting his credentials in the open for verification. Nigeria will get better when men of integrity and honour drive the affairs of the nation.

“We therefore welcome every other interest willing to join us in our pursuit of a nation where justice shall reign.”
