The Labour Party has expressed its rejection of the verdict delivered by the Presidential Election Petition Court, which upheld the declaration of Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the February 25, 2023 election.
The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Obiora Ifoh, conveyed the party’s stance in Abuja shortly after the court’s decision was announced.
Ifoh stated, “The Labour Party observed with disappointment and apprehension the dismissal of the petitions by the five-member panel of the Presidential Election Petition Court led by Justice Haruna Tsammani today. We completely reject the outcome of the judgment because it does not reflect justice, nor does it align with the law or the will of the people.”
He continued, “Nigerians were witnesses to the electoral misconduct that occurred on February 25, 2023, which was widely condemned on a global scale. However, the Tribunal, in its wisdom, chose not to acknowledge the glaring irregularities.”
Ifoh emphasized the significance of preserving democracy and asserted that the party would persist in its efforts until the people’s will prevails. He commended the resilience of the party’s legal team for fearlessly highlighting the shortcomings in the system.
He concluded by saying, “We can only express our deep concern for the state of democracy in Nigeria, but we refuse to give up on the country. We call on all supporters of democracy to stay focused and optimistic because a better Nigeria is attainable.”
