Presidential candidate Peter Obi of the Labour Party has responded to an appeal by his People’s Democratic Party (PDP) counterpart, Atiku Abubakar, to join the legal battle challenging President Bola Tinubu’s certificate forgery case. In a statement released on Thursday and signed by the National Publicity Secretary of the Labour Party, Obiora Ifoh, Obi stated that he is currently focused on reclaiming his allegedly stolen mandate at the Supreme Court.
The statement emphasized that Obi has been committed to pursuing justice and ensuring a just nation where integrity and honor are upheld as core values. He has consistently advocated for leaders to serve as role models and live lives worthy of emulation. As part of this commitment to transparency, Obi has made his credentials open for public verification.
The Labour Party welcomes any other interests willing to join them in their pursuit of a just and equitable nation where justice prevails. Obi’s primary focus remains on the legal battle in the Supreme Court as he seeks to reclaim what he believes is his stolen mandate.
This development comes in the midst of a legal tussle over President Tinubu’s certificate forgery, with Atiku Abubakar leading the charge in challenging the authenticity of Tinubu’s credentials. While Atiku has called for transparency and the verification of academic qualifications, Obi is resolute in his pursuit of justice through legal means. The outcome of these legal battles will likely have significant implications for Nigeria’s political landscape.
