The Labour Party’s candidate in the just concluded 2023 presidential election, has sent a strong message to his followers ahead of the Saturday’s gubernatorial and states assemblies’ elections.

He called on Obidients in the country to keep campaigning for their candidates at the state level as he headed to court, following the refusal of the electoral body, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to grant him access to the presidential election materials for inspection.

He lamented his inability to campaign for them as a result of the development, but urged the Obidients to go ahead and do the campaign across the country, saying new Nigeria was possible

He made this known in a tweet on Wednesday morning via his verified Twitter account.

According to him: “I am supposed to commence our whistle-stop campaign for our various Labour Party Governorship and State Assembly Candidates today. Initially, my trip was to take me to Nasarawa, Lagos, Enugu, Abia, Delta, Edo, Rivers, Plateau, Borno, etc.

“However, following INEC’s refusal to allow our party to inspect the materials (including BVAS) from the 25th February presidential elections, I am personally heading to the Court today with our lawyers.

“As we pursue due process and defer to the rule of law, I urge all the Obidients in the various states to continue campaigning for our candidates, namely, Gbadebo Rhodes Vivour in Lagos, Chijioke Edeoga in Enugu, Patrick Dakum in Plateau, Alex Otti in Abia, Ken Pela in Delta,

“Ibrahim Mshelia in Borno, to name just a few. It is also imperative that Obidients vote for candidates with Competence, Character, Capacity, and Compassion. I remain committed and will give more attention to our mission of retrieving our mandate. A new Nigeria is possible!”

Obi, who emerged third in a controversial presidential election results released by INEC, is heading to court to challenge the results of the polls.
