The Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi has reiterated that he will explore all ways to ensure that he reclaims his alleged stolen mandate.
Obi stated this while speaking during a Labour Party stakeholders’ meeting in Awka. The former Anambra state governor vowed to explore all legal options in ensuring he reclaims his mandate.
Recall that Obi came third in the February 25th presidential election. The Labour Party presidential candidate was defeated by the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Since the declaration of Tinubu as the winner of the poll by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Obi had insisted he won the election, as headed to court to contest the outcome of the poll.
In a tweet via his verified Twitter about the meeting, Obi stated;
“Earlier, I interacted with the Anambra State Labour Party Stakeholders in Awka. The meeting was quite animated and constructive.”
“Part of our discussions centred on the way forward for the party. I reassured them of my readiness to go all the way, explore every available legal option to ensure that we get our mandate back.”
“I appreciated all their support so far, as I assured them of mine.”
