Tinubu’s certificate saga: Labour Party replies Atiku, says ‘Obi focused on reclaiming his stolen mandate’

The leadership of the Labour Party, LP, has reacted the call by the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, on his rival, Peter Obi, to join hands in fighting for justice at the Supreme Court.

Recall that on Thursday while addressing world press conference, Mr Atiku had urged Mr Obi and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, to join him in reclaiming his mandate from President Bola Tinubu at the Supreme Court.

But the Labour Party, in the statement by its national publicity secretary, Obiora Ifoh, said Mr Obi was equally focused on reclaiming the same mandate from Mr Tinubu.


According to the LP scribe, Mr Obi has always been in the vanguard of ensuring a just nation.

Mr Ifoh, therefore, stressed that the former Anambra governor would not back out of his crusade until Nigeria achieved the leadership it truly deserved.


The statement reads, “The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, is presently in the Supreme Court seeking to reclaim his stolen mandate, and he is focused on that.

“He has been in the vanguard of ensuring a just nation where justice must be the watchword, and he will not stop until Nigeria achieves a leadership it truly deserves.

“Obi has pontificated severally on the need for leaders to be good role models and to live a life worthy of emulation. This he has done by publicly putting his credentials in the open for verification. Nigeria will get better when men of integrity and honour drive the affairs of the nation.

“We therefore welcome every other interest willing to join us in our pursuit of a nation where justice shall reign.”
