Labour Party Knocks Tinubu Over Call to Disqualify Obi From Possible Rerun

PoliticsLabour Party Knocks Tinubu Over Call to Disqualify Obi From Possible Rerun

Emameh Gabriel in Abuja – The Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council (LP-PCC), yesterday berated President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for asking the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC), to disqualify its candidate, Peter Obi, should the court settle for a rerun.

This was contained in statement signed by the Head Media, Obi-Datti Campaign Council, Diran Onifade, who accused the ruling All Progressive Congress of becoming “desperate and lined up measures to undermine his public image”.

Diran noted that the “Obi-Datti Media office has noted how a worried ruling All Progressives Congress, APC and its Presidential Candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu are even wishing and pleading with the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal PEPC to consider pairing them with ATIKU Abubakar of the PDP instead of Obi.

“In fact, he wants Obi disqualified outrightly and be prevented from participating in the rerun, should there be one.

Diran alleged that, “In their (APC) desperation to stop Obi at all costs, they have lined up a series of untoward activities using rogue troll agents that seek to portray him negatively and copiously misrepresent him in public space,”

According to him, “This devilish act is ostensibly to enable them to defend their call that Obi should be disqualified by the PEPC thus seeking a rerun between Tinubu and Atiku.

He said: “Obi-Datti Media recalls that last week the same rogue agents had claimed that Obi granted an interview on Arise Television saying he is willing to take defeat and wait for elections 2027.

“All this wicked and dubious propaganda is aimed at achieving one mission; to confuse the public, distract and defocus the Justices from their statutory responsibilities.

“We therefore wish to urge the Nigerian public not to be gullible and to disregard the fake THISDAY publication and embrace the correct edition with the lead story, Atiku: APC Plotting to Manipulate Judiciary, Undermine Democracy.“

The Obi-Datti Campaign office therefore called on the public to “watch out for more of these sinister acts of desperation orchestrated by a drowning government that is visibly afraid of justice which must certainly come”
