BREAKING: Peter Obi to address world press conference on Supreme Court ruling today

An urgent announcement from the Labour Party (LP)’s X page indicates that the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, will address a World Press Conference from his campaign headquarters in Abuja today by 2 p.m.

Obi is expected to react to the Supreme Court’s judgement, affirming Bola Tinubu as the validly elected president of Nigeria.

Atiku of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had addressed the press days after the ruling, stating his dissatisfaction with the verdict.

He also stated that Nigeria is the loser after the verdict from the Supreme Court justices.

The apex court had agreed with the September 6 verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Court on all counts.

The seven-man panel of the apex court led by Justice Inyang Okoro, in a unanimous judgment, resolved the seven issues for determination in the appeals filed by the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Obi in favour of Tinubu.

The apex court, in its lead judgment, prepared and read by Justice Inyang Okoro, held that there was no merit in Atiku/PDP and Obi/LP’s petitions to nullify the election outcome.
