Tinubu’s victory: Peter Obi files suit at Presidential election tribunal



The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate in the just concluded election, Peter Obi, has filed a suit at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, Abuja, against the declaration of Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as the winner by the electoral commission.


Our correspondent sighted the petition marked CA/PEC/02m/2023 with Peter Obi, Labour Party, LP as plaintiff, while the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Bola Tinubu, and the All Progressives Congress are the defendants.


Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, declared Tinubu as having won the presidential election on Wednesday. The electoral body had also issued Tinubu the certificate of return.


However, Obi declared he won the 2023 presidential election.


According to him, he was robbed of his mandate, which he can only retrieve in a court of law.


Recall that the former Anambra State governor spoke on Thursday in a world press conference.


“We’ll explore all legal options to retrieve our mandate. We won the election. I’m fully committed to a better future for the country, and nothing can stop that,” he said.
