We Won And Will Explore All Legal Means To Reclaim Our Mandate – Obi

The Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has said that he won the February 25, Presidential Election and he would prove it.

Addressing his first press conference since the election was held and results declared, Obi said he and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed were committed to reclaiming the mandate given to them on February 25.

“We will explore all legal and peaceful options to reclaim our mandate. We won the election and we will prove it to Nigerians,”  he said.

I am challenging the process,” Obi declared to a room full of journalists at Nigeria’s capital city, his first media appearance after the declaration of a winner by the electoral umpire.

“This is very unfair. It is the least expected of Nigeria,” he said.

He however pleaded for calm and peaceful conduct by his supporters and also encouraged his supporters to come out and vote on March 11 in the governorship and state assembly elections.

Wondering why those who aspire to lead would abuse, manipulate and distort the electoral process, Obi said “If you want to answer his excellency, the process through which you rise to office must be excellent.”.

Just at the commencement of the briefing, Obi observed a one-minute silence for all injured and deceased victims of the February 25 poll.

Also in attendance at the briefing is the party’s National Chairman, Julius Abure; as well as the director general of Obi’s presidential campaign, Akin Osuntokun.

He also said himself and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed remain committed to a new Nigeria.

He effusively thanked his youthful followers known as ‘Obidients’, urging them not to be deterred by the outcome of the polls.
