During his visit to the United States, Julius Abure, the national chairman of the Labour Party (LP), expressed his belief that Peter Obi, the party’s presidential candidate, is the most capable individual to tackle the numerous challenges currently facing Nigeria.
Abure further stated that he expects Obi to be declared the country’s president by the tribunal, as Obi and his party are contesting the outcome of the February presidential election.
The LP is requesting that the court invalidate the victory of Bola Tinubu, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Abure, who is currently on a tour of both the United Kingdom and the United States, anticipates that the presidential election petition tribunal (PEPT) will reach a verdict by September 16.
Additionally, he remarked that the country’s situation has deteriorated since Tinubu assumed the presidency.
“Following Peter Obi’s participation in the 2023 general election, we changed the political narratives in Nigeria. We gave them a run for their money,” he said.
“They have murdered sleep and they will sleep no more. They have stolen what is not for them and they will not sleep until we recover it all.
“We are expecting judgment between now and the 16th of September. And I am very sure Peter Obi will become President.
“Without sounding immodest, since they took over, things are now worse. The only party and the only candidate that has solutions to the challenges of the country is the Labour Party and Peter Obi. And so we still believe that things will change in Nigeria.
“I want to say that we should not lose hope, we should not be discouraged. The hope is still alive and I am confident that Peter Obi will be president.”
