Reason Atiku, PDP Are Happy With Peter Obi – Reno Omokri
Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, are happy with the petition filed by the Labour Party (LP) candidate, Peter Obi, against the Presidential- elect, Bola-Tinubu.
Naija News recalls that Peter Obi who came third in the election had filed his petition at the presidential elections tribunal in Abuja.
This was made known in a statement via Twitter in the early hours of Tuesday by the Chief spokesman of the LP Presidential Campaign Council, Yunusa Tanko.
He noted that the process of Obi reclaiming the people’s mandate has commenced.
He wrote: “It is official the Labor Party Presidential candidate Peter OBI has filed his petition to the presidential elections tribunal in Abuja. The process of reclaiming the people’s mandate has started”
However, in a post via his Instagram handle on Thursday, Omokri said Obi is helping Atiku claim his mandate at the tribunal.
Omokri said the LP flagbearer would still not be declared the winner even if he succeeds in convincing the court that Tinubu rigged the election.
He wrote, “The thing is that even if Peter Obi can prove his claim that Tinubu did not get the most legal votes and did not fulfill the ¼ in 2/3rd states, the court will simply declare Atiku the winner.
“That is why we are very happy with Obi’s petition. It is like fetching water for us! The #NigerianElections2023 is not like Imo’s election. The INEC 3rd cannot become the court’s 1st. If Bola Tinubu is displaced by Obi’s petition, then Atiku is in place.”
