Supreme Court’s Judgment Has Eroded Trust in the Judiciary – Peter Obi


Peter Obi, the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party in the February 25 election, has criticized the Supreme Court’s judgment that affirmed Bola Tinubu’s election, describing it as a breach of trust in the judiciary. He accused the apex court of disregarding evidence and argued that the ruling further undermined citizens’ trust in the judiciary.

Obi expressed his disappointment and stated that this judgment has eroded confidence in the Nigerian judiciary. He called it an unreasonable use of power against the Nigerian people, from whom the authority of Nigerian citizens is derived.

He also reassured Nigerians that he would not give up on the quest for a new Nigeria built on principles such as character, competence, integrity, compassion, and the rule of law. Obi emphasized that the recent Supreme Court ruling marked the beginning of their commitment to creating a new and prosperous Nigeria.

He expressed deep appreciation for the non-partisan support of millions of youths and ordinary Nigerians who have continued to support his mission for a better Nigeria, regardless of their ethnic backgrounds and geographic locations. He extended his heartfelt gratitude to all Nigerians who have been part of this journey from the beginning.

I’m Still Committed To A New Nigeria – Obi

Peter Obi, the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party (LP), has affirmed his unwavering commitment to building a new Nigeria despite the Supreme Court’s ruling on the 2023 Presidential Election not being in his favour. Obi made this statement during a news conference held in Abuja.

Expressing his disappointment with the ruling, Obi emphasized that he remained dedicated to constructing a nation based on principles such as prudent resource management, transparency, accountability, and equitable distribution of opportunities, resources, and privileges.

Obi pointed out that while he strongly disagreed with the rulings of the Presidential Petitions Court (PEPC) and the Supreme Court regarding the outcome of the February 25 presidential election declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), he recognized the Supreme Court as the final stage in seeking legal closure on the matter.
