The Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has declined to join the legal challenge against President Tinubu’s credentials initiated by his Peoples Democratic Party rival, Atiku Abubakar.
According to a statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary of the Labour Party, Obiora Ifoh, on Thursday, Obi is concentrating on his appeal at the Supreme Court to overturn the election results that favoured Tinubu.
The statement said that Obi is determined to reclaim his mandate that was allegedly stolen by Tinubu and his party.
Ifoh further said, “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 the 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. “
