Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, has acknowledged the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding President Bola Tinubu’s election.
But according to Obi, the ruling would not mean that the Obidient movement would end.
The former governor of Anambra state declared that the Labour Party was now in opposition after the legal dispute was resolved.
He insisted that he was still committed to creating a new Nigeria.
Obi spoke out about the Supreme Court ruling during a press conference in Abuja on Monday, November 6.
On September 26, the Supreme Court upheld the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal’s September 6 ruling, which confirmed Tinubu’s election as the legitimate winner of the presidency.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidates Atiku Abubakar, who finished second in the election, and Obi, who finished third, had their appeals rejected by the seven-member panel, which was presided over by Justice John Inyang-Okoro.
“We will build the party, we will make it stronger,” Obi declared. We’ll develop those adolescents. We’ll emerge more resilient and determined to build a new Nigeria.
The future moves quickly. Right now, we want to make sure that we act in Nigeria’s best interests.
