Lamidi Apapa faction of Labour Party warned Peter Obi not to challenge Tinubu’s victory..

    The faction of the Labour Party led by Lamidi Apapa has revealed that they had cautioned their Presidential candidate in the February 25 Presidential election, Peter Obi, against pursuing any legal action, as they believed it would ultimately prove futile.

    Abayomi Arabambi, the National Publicity Secretary of this faction, made this statement in response to the verdict of the Presidential Election Tribunal, which dismissed Obi’s petition challenging the election of President Bola Tinubu.


    Arabambi expressed disappointment in Peter Obi’s legal team for what he perceived as inadequate counsel before proceeding to the tribunal. While emphasizing that the party accepted the tribunal’s decision impartially, Arabambi deemed the entire process a time-wasting endeavor.

    He remarked, “Peter Obi embarked on a fruitless endeavor. Consider that the candidate who failed to provide the party with the necessary funding to engage the required polling agents and filed witnesses beyond the specified deadline has demonstrated the ineffectiveness of his legal team.”

    Arabambi also voiced suspicions that Peter Obi’s motivation for going to the tribunal was to justify the substantial campaign funds he had collected, suggesting that these funds had been corruptly diverted.

    “It is regrettable that Obi could not convince the tribunal about the polling units where he was allegedly subjected to electoral irregularities,” Arabambi added. He further noted that the tribunal criticized Obi for making generalized allegations of irregularities without specifying the affected polling units, thus questioning the quality of evidence presented in the case.
