Peter Obi Breaks Silence: “We Won The Election And Will Prove It.”

The Labour Party’s (LP) nominee for president, Peter Obi, promises to prove to Nigerians that he was victorious in the election.

Wednesday saw the announcement by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) that Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, had won the presidential election.

Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who received 6,984,52 votes, came in second to Tinubu with 8,794,726 votes, and Obi with 6,101,533 votes.

At a press conference on Thursday in Abuja, Obi declared that he will pursue every legal option to regain his mandate.

The 2023 presidential election, according to the LP standard bearer, is possibly the “most contentious” in the nation’s history.

The election results should not be seen as the end, but rather as a new beginning, Obi advised his followers.

According to him, this election was one of the most contentious ones ever held in Nigeria.

“The noble people of Nigeria were defrauded once more. But I urge Nigerians to maintain order and abide by the law. “This is a beginning, not the end… We shall investigate every peaceful and legal avenue to restore our mandate. We will show Nigerians that we won the election.

He urged the Obidients not to give up and to participate in the March 11 governorship elections.

“We have elections coming on the 11th. We enjoin you to go out and vote,” he said.

Speaking on the declaration of Tinubu as the winner of the election, Obi said: “It is my belief that for you to answer “you excellency”, the process through which you arrive to office must be excellent.”

Obi said he and Datti Baba-Ahmed, his running mate, are “committed” to the cause of a new Nigeria.

“We will work for that new Nigeria that is possible. Datti and I remain committed to that new Nigeria,” he said.
