Following the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) refusal to permit them to inspect the materials (including BVAS) from the February 25 presidential elections, Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi announced that he would be pausing his whistle-stop campaign for the party’s governorship and state assembly candidates today, March 8.

Remember that a Court of Appeal allowed the Labour Party and the Peoples Democratic Party access to examine private records used by INEC during the presidential election.

In tweets he sent, Obi claimed he would go to court with his attorneys to address the matter. Additionally, he exhorted his followers to support all Labour party candidates in the upcoming election.

“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.

Peter Obi accuses INEC of not allowing them inspect electoral materials

“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.

I urge all OBIdients in the various states to continue advocating for our candidates, including Gbadebo Rhodes Vivour in Lagos, Chijoke Edeoga in Enugu, Patrick Dakum in Plateau, Alex Otti in Abia, Ken Pela in Delta, and Ibrahim Mshelia in Borno, to name a few, as we pursue due process and adhere to the rule of law. Voting for candidates who possess these qualities—competence, character, capacity, and compassion—is also essential. I’m still committed, and I’ll focus more on our effort to get back our mandate. Nigeria can change for the better! -PO”
