I Am Personally Heading To Court Today With Our Lawyers – Peter Obi

Peter Obi, candidate of Labour Party in the just concluded presidential election has disclosed that he will personally be at the Court of Appeal today with his lawyers.
Herald Reporters gathered that the Appeal Court granted leave to Obi to inspect election materials used by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the February 25 presidential election.
However, the Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi reveals that the electoral umpire has refused to allow his party to inspect the materials, including the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) used for the election.
“I am supposed to commence our whistle-stop campaign for our various Labour Party Governorship and State Assembly Candidates today. Initially, my trip was to take me to Nasarawa, Lagos, Enugu, Abia, Delta, Edo, Rivers, Plateau, Borno, etc.
However, following INEC’s refusal to allow our party to inspect the materials (including BVAS) from the 25th February presidential elections, I am personally heading to the Court today with our lawyers.
“As we pursue due process and defer to the rule of law, I urge all the OBIdients in the various states to continue campaigning for our candidates, namely, Gbadebo Rhodes Vivour in Lagos, Chijoke Edeoga in Enugu, Patrick Dakum in Plateau, Alex Otti in Abia, Ken Pela in Delta, Ibrahim Mshelia in Borno, to name just a few.
“It is also imperative that Obidients vote for candidates with Competence, Character, Capacity, and Compassion. I remain committed and will give more attention to our mission of retrieving our mandate. A new Nigeria is possible,” Obi said.
