Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate, will appear before the Court of Appeal in Abuja today (Wednesday) to discuss his party’s legal effort to examine voting machines used by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the February 25 presidential and National Assembly elections as well as other electoral materials.
“Following INEC’s refusal to allow our party to inspect the materials (including BVAS) from the 25th February presidential elections, I am personally heading to the court today with our lawyers,” Obi tweeted early Wednesday.
The former governor of Anambra State declared that he was still dedicated to his goal of regaining his office and that he would focus more on it going forward.
“As we pursue due process and defer to the rule of law, I urge all the Obidients in the various states to continue campaigning for our candidates, namely, Gbadebo Rhodes Vivour in Lagos, Chijoke Edeoga in Enugu, Patrick Dakum in Plateau, Alex Otti in Abia, Ken Pela in Delta, Ibrahim Mshelia in Borno, to name just a few. It is also imperative that Obidients vote for candidates with Competence, Character, Capacity, and Compassion,” he added.
I am personally traveling to the Court today with our attorneys as a result of INEC’s rejection to permit our party to see the documents (including BVAS) from the 25th of February presidential elections.
I am supposed to commence our whistle-stop campaign for our various Labour Party Governorship and State Assembly Candidates today. Initially, my trip was to take me to Nasarawa, Lagos, Enugu, Abia, Delta, Edo, Rivers, Plateau, Borno, etc.
