Peter Obi challenges Tinubu’ victory at Presidential election tribunal

Our reporter| The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate in the just concluded election, Peter Obi, has filed a suit at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, Abuja, against the declaration of Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as the winner by the electoral commission.

The petition marked CA/PEC/02m/2023 with Peter Obi, Labour Party, LP as plaintiff, while the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Bola Tinubu, and the All Progressives Congress are the defendants.

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had earlier this week declared Tinubu as having won the presidential election but at a world press conference on Thursday, Obi declared he won the 2023 presidential election, and vowed to retrieve it in a court of law.

“We’ll explore all legal options to retrieve our mandate. We won the election. I’m fully committed to a better future for the country, and nothing can stop that,” he said.
