Obi to Decide Future After Supreme Court Dismissal 


The Labour Party (LP) has been thrown into a state of contemplation as its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, prepares to make a significant announcement about his political future. This decision follows the recent dismissal of his petition challenging the election of President Bola Tinubu by the Supreme Court.

Reacting to the court’s ruling on Thursday, spokesperson Yunusa Tanko, on behalf of the LP Presidential Campaign Council, expressed disappointment and dismay.

Tanko emphasized the party’s discontent with the Supreme Court’s decision, asserting that they are now considering alternative avenues of recourse, including appealing to the “masses’ court.”

“As far as we are concerned, we have brought out our cases beyond reasonable doubt, but the court chose to look at the other side and turn a deaf ear to our plea. And they have taken their decision,” Tanko said.

“As democrats, we will not do anything otherwise but rather resort to the masses’ court — the public and people of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. They can analyse this judgment vis-a-vis what they are facing at the moment and what’s the credibility of the leadership already enthroned.

“We’ll continue to be law-abiding and follow the dictates of democracy. Don’t forget that democracy also gives room for people to speak on issues if they feel they are being offended. So we have done our bit and we will leave this particular issue now to the masses’ court.”

Tanko further remarked that the party had requested the court to interpret the 25% qualification of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and scrutinize the procedures followed by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in accordance with the Electoral Act, but their entreaty was overlooked by the court.
