”If They Come At Us Through Land, Air, Sea, We’ll Respond To Them Same Way” Peter Obi Tells Supporters
The candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 presidential election, Mr Peter Obi, has encouraged his supporters to have faith as he goes through the process of challenging the victory of Bola Tinubu in the election.
Tinubu, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, was declared the winner of the election after polling 8,794,726 votes.
His biggest challenger, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party polled a total of 6,984,520 votes in the election while Obi came third in the election with a total of 6,101,533 votes.
Obi said he never expected the journey to having a new Nigeria to be an easy one.
The former Anambra governor said the forces that had lived off the old order over the years were bound to fight back.
“If they come at us through land, air and sea, we will respond to them through land, air and sea, but we will remain law abiding and will never give up on the nation,” Obi said.
“We are on the right path, and we will remain committed to the course.”
He reiterated his commitment to a “Nigeria that will be beneficial to every Nigerian”.
According to him, the struggle to challenge the outcome of the election and reclaim what he claimed was stolen from him, was not about him but about millions of Nigerians who trusted and voted for him.
“The millions of Nigerians who voted for me did not just cast their votes, but they invested their hope in me. They deserve justice. So we must stay the course. And beyond regaining our mandate, I am committed to lifting people out of poverty.
“I remain committed to transforming Nigeria, starting from the North to every part of the nation,” Obi stated.
He said he was not afraid of the ‘lies and propaganda” of his political opponents.
“I have always lived my life in the most law-abiding manner possible. Sometimes, as humans, we make mistakes, but I will never knowingly break any law. I am, therefore, not afraid of the lies and propaganda against my person. They are part of the journey to a new Nigeria,” Obi concluded.
