Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, has turned down the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Atiku Abubakar’s invitation aimed at achieving ‘justice.’
Obi said his focus remains on reclaiming what he considers his stolen mandate through the legal system.
This came after the press conference held by the former Vice president to establish the case of certificate forgery against president Tinubu.
Atiku had at the conference, called on relevant institutions to address the discrepancies in the certificate submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) by President Bola Tinubu.
Obi, through statement by the Labour Party National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, stated that his primary goal now is to “reclaim his stolen mandate” as he presently pursues the matter in the Supreme Court.
In a statement, Obi emphasized his unwavering commitment to the pursuit of a just nation where justice serves as the guiding principle.
He declared that “Nigeria will get better when men of integrity and honor drive the affairs of the nation,” underscoring his belief in setting an example as a leader worth emulating.
The statement read: “The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi is presently in the Supreme Court seeking to reclaim his stolen mandate and he is focused on that.
“He has been in the vanguard of ensuring a just nation where justice must be the watchword, and he will not stop until Nigeria achieves a leadership it truly deserves.
“Obi has pontificated severally on the need for leaders to be good role models and to live a life worthy of emulation. This he has done by publicly putting his credentials in the open for verification. Nigeria will get better when men of integrity and honour drive the affairs of the nation.
“We therefore welcome every other interest willing to join us in our pursuit of a nation where justice shall reign.”
