Peter Obi turns down Atiku’s invitation, affirms commitment to Labour Party campaign

Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, has responded to Atiku Abubakar’s call to join him in opposing President Bola Tinubu.

In a statement released by the Labour Party, Obi has rejected the advances of the former Vice President.

The former Anambra State governor said he is more focused on his quest to regain his stolen mandate from President Tinubu.

Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi has turned down an invitation from PDP counterpart Atiku Abubakar to join him in challenging President Bola Tinubu’s academic records.

In a statement signed by the Labour Party’s spokesperson, Obiora Ifoh, on Thursday, Obi stated that he was focused on reclaiming his mandate at the Supreme Court.

“He (Obi) has been in the vanguard of ensuring a just nation where justice must be the watchword, and he will not stop until Nigeria achieves the leadership it truly deserves.

“Obi has pontificated severally on the need for leaders to be good role models and to live a life worthy of emulation. This he has done by publicly putting his credentials in the open for verification. Nigeria will get better when men of integrity and honour drive the affairs of the nation.

“We therefore welcome every other interest willing to join us in our pursuit of a nation where justice shall reign.”

Atiku calls on Peter Obi, Kwankwaso to join him in removing Tinubu, gives reason.

Atiku Abubakar, the PDP’s presidential candidate, has called on Peter Obi and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the Labour Party and NNPP to join him in opposing President Bola Tinubu.

The former vice president said many Nigerians are looking up to them to respect and defend the rule of law.

Atiku then extended the call to religious, traditional and political leaders, adding that it was a national call for probity.

Meanwhile, an emerging report has revealed that Nigerians are now being labelled cheats in other countries.

This was revealed by Ogun State governorship aspirant and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Segun Sowunmi.

He stated this during a live telecast of the Channels TV late-night programme, “Politics Today”.
