Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, has urged his supporters, dubbed “Obidients,” not to succumb to the designs of the country’s leaders after losing his petition against President Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja on Wednesday.
Remember that the presidential candidates of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, and the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, both contested Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s victory in the Presidential Election Tribunal in Abuja, and their petitions were dismissed by the court last Wednesday. Former Anambra State Governor Peter Obi has vowed to appeal the decision to the country’s highest court.
Reacting on his verified Twitter page today, Peter Obi, a former Governor of Anambra State said; “We set out knowing fully well that the forces we are up against are entrenched and formidable but not insurmountable. They would resist the wind of change and try to push us into surrender or despair. We must not succumb to their design.”
He stated further; “I am inspired that we have endured the odds placed in our way at every point. In such a short space of time, we have persevered to get to the point where we cannot be ignored any longer. Therefore, I urge you to abide and never think of giving up”
He added; “I wish to assure you that our recent disappointments have inspired me to re-dedicate myself to the cause of building a New Nigeria. For me, rescuing Nigeria is a lifelong commitment, and on this journey, we shall be resolute but orderly, principled but lawful”
