2023 Election Results: Judiciary Will Deliver Right Judgement – Peter Obi

2023 Election Results: Judiciary Will Deliver Right Judgement – Peter Obi | Daily Report Nigeria

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has expressed confidence in the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, saying the judiciary will deliver the right judgement.

Obi, who is challenging the result of the February 25 presidential election, made this known while speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Thursday morning.

The former Anambra governor said he has no doubt about the court, adding that Nigeria has one of the finest judiciary in the world but politicians are the people trying to corrupt the judiciary with “transactions.”

He said, “They are now dealing with the lawyers, I don’t go to INEC, I’m not part of it. Well, I believe the lawyers are satisfied and if they are, it’s no longer about me trusting INEC, there’s now something between the two of us. So if our lawyers trust them I’m fine with that.”

“I am confident in the judiciary. I am because I have stayed in court for three years when people said it’s impossible for you to become a governor through the court and I became the first. Remember I was impeached and again the court brought me back.

“And I went for an interpretation where I said ‘my tenure is not complete’ . People said it’s impossible because somebody else had been elected but I changed it. So having gone through courts, several of them, I have not had any course to doubt the court.

“I believe Nigeria has one of the best judiciary globally, but it is we, politicians, because of our transactional nature, that are trying to ensure that everywhere is corrupted and that I wish can start reversing, even with this case.

“They are seeing globally what is happening, Africans are surprised that the giant of Africa can no longer deliver. Even Ghana will soon have elections and they will do all without the BVAS and it will go smoothly.

“I don’t go anywhere referring to how others were treated. Irrespective of their controversial judgments recently (referring to the Supreme Court), I have confidence that they know the country is collapsing, they know they have to help to build a better place for their children.”
