‘I Will Be Shock If Court Upholds Tinubu’s Election’ – Peter Obi
The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has declared it would be surprising if the court upholds the outcome of the election that produced the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Bola Tinubu as the president-elect.
Naija News reports that Peter Obi made this known while featuring on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Thursday.
Recall the former governor of Anambra State and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Atiku Abubakar is challenging the victory of Tinubu at the just concluded election.
When asked whether he would accept the outcome of the election if the judgement is not in his favour, the LP flagbearer said he would be shocked if the court decided to go with the situation.
According to him, such an outcome will further show that Nigeria is a corporate criminalized country and it should not be allowed.
Peter Obi expressed optimism that the judiciary would do the right thing.
His words: “Issues about the election will be sorted out in court. I will be shocked if this country goes on with that situation. It will then stand that it is a corporate criminalised country. We can’t allow it. We need to start unbundling this criminality.
“When people were talking about structure, it is this fraud and criminality that we witnessed that they were talking about, and we want to unbundle it for the sake of our children.”
Asked if he would accept any offer to be part of Bola Tinubu’s Government of National Unity, Peter Obi said he was still challenging the process of the election and the declaration.
According to him, the process of the election should be put right first before anyone could talk of the Government of National Unity.
He said: “The first thing I want to see is that the process is right. The process through which you achieve anything is far more fundamental than what you do thereafter. Let us go back first, I am challenging the process and the declaration.
“Until we get it right, then we can talk about a government of national unity. Otherwise, we would go and sit down and say that those who stopped a train and kidnapped people can call us to discuss peace when they have people in captivity. Until things are done rightly, we will be encouraging what we don’t need to encourage”
