The National Chairman of the Labour Party (LP), Julius Abure, says the party’s presidential candidate in the 2023 presidential candidate, Peter Obi, will be declared president of Nigeria by the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.
Abure said this while addressing some Nigerians in the United States during a tour of the country.
Recall that Obi who came third in the presidential election held on February 25 and his party are challenging the outcome of the poll and the nullification of the election of President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Abure, who is on a tour to the United Kingdom and the US, said the judgment by the presidential election petition court is expected to come on or before September 16, stressing that “Following Peter Obi’s participation in the 2023 general election, we changed the political narratives in Nigeria. We gave them a run for their money.
“They have murdered sleep and they will sleep no more. They have stolen what is not for them and they will not sleep until we recover it all.
“We are expecting judgment between now and the 16th of September. And I am very sure Peter Obi will become President.
“Without sounding immodest, since they took over, things are now worse. The only party and the only candidate that has solutions to the challenges of the country is the Labour Party and Peter Obi. And so we still believe that things will change in Nigeria.
“I want to say that we should not lose hope, we should not be discouraged. The hope is still alive and I am confident that Peter Obi will be president”.
