Presidential Election: We’ll Challenge Both Process And Outcome, Obi Clarifies

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has clarified his earlier statement that tends to suggest that he will only challenge the process that led to the declaration of the All Progressives Congress’ Bola Tinubu as the winner of the February 25 presidential election and not the outcome.

In a tweet posted to his verified Twitter handle Monday afternoon, Obi made it clear that he is at the tribunal to challenge both the process and the outcome.

The LP flagbearer had, in an interview on Arise TV’s ‘The Morning Show’ on Monday morning, said that he did not have issues with Tinubu being declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission as the winner of the presidential election, but rather interrogating the process through which he emerged.

But clarifying his position, Obi wrote on his Twitter page that he would challenge both the electoral process and the declaration itself.

“Following my response to a question while appearing on Arise TV earlier today, I want to state categorically that at the Presidential Elections Tribunal (PET), I am challenging the INEC electoral process that led to the declaration of Tinubu as president-elect as well as the declaration itself,” Obi tweeted.
