Presidential election: Why I haven’t called, congratulated Tinubu – Peter Obi



The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi on Thursday disclosed why he has not congratulated the President-elect, Bola Tinubu.


Obi said he was yet to congratulate Tinubu because he would contest the process of the presidential election in court.


He spoke while addressing a press conference in Abuja.


According to Obi: “I have not made calls to anybody. The two contenders are my fathers, but on this issue, I’m challenging the process.”


While Tinubu won Saturday’s election, Obi came a distant third after the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar.


Tinubu of the APC had 8,794,726 votes to defeat Atiku who had 6,984,520 votes, while Obi had 6,101,533 votes.

  1. Tinubu does not deserve any citizen's congratulations because he did not win the elections.The tense atmosphere in the nation suggests nothing less. And so Obi cannot congratulate him.
