The Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, on Thursday, said his party won last Saturday’s presidential election and he will explore all legal and peaceful means prove it.
Obi stated this in his first public appearance after the just concluded presidential poll, at a press conference in Abuja.
The former governor of Anambra State said: “Nigerians especially the youths believed in and worked tirelessly for a new Nigeria. Gratitude to the Obidients, those who believed a new Nigeria is possible and I say to them a new Nigeria is possible and we will work for that new Nigeria that is possible.
“The commitment and silence of Nigerians even in the face of unwarranted panic attacks is a testimony that a new Nigeria is indeed possible. Look at people like lady Jennifer who was stabbed and still went on to vote then that gives me the courage to believe that a new Nigeria is indeed possible.
“The good and hardworking people of Nigeria have again been robbed by our supposed leaders whom they trusted,” he said.
“They asked us to go the court, remember I’m an ‘Obedient’, I will go to where they ask us to go. Let me reassure the good people of Nigeria that we will explore all legal and peaceful options to reclaim our mandate. We won the election and I will prove it to Nigerians.
“Please, be assured that this is not the end but the beginning of a journey for the birth of a new Nigeria.
“Datti and I remain absolutely undaunted and deeply committed to the project of a new Nigeria that will be built on honesty, transparency, fairness, justice, and equity. All the above starts with the process.
“For the election on Saturday go out there and vote. I’ll be part of it, I assure you,” he said.
