The thronging Labour Party, LP, and Obidient movement followers in Ebonyi State have been exhorted by the former minister of state for health, Fidelis Nwankwo, to have complete faith in the Nigerian judicial system, maintaining that Peter Obi will be proclaimed the winner by the Court.
The country’s most recent presidential election was held on February 25, 2023, and according to Nwankwo, a former National Commissioner for the Independent National Electoral Commission, or INEC, only the court has the authority to correct any wrongs that may have been committed.
The former council chairman of Izzi LGA revealed this to reporters shortly after his meeting with stakeholders and throngs of LP and Obidient movement members at his Amagu mansion in Abakaliki, the capital of Ebonyi State.
The former minister ran for governor of the state as a candidate for both the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the Labour Party, LP.
Nwankwo, who described his political career, declared that he will continue to support the Labour Party, LP, stating that Nigeria will be led by Peter Obi, who in his opinion possesses the ability and cunning necessary to advance and improve the country’s economy.
According to him, Nigerians are hoping that the judiciary will right the wrongs committed by the APC in the most recent presidential and national assembly elections. Mr. Peter Obi is the candidate that Nigerians chose. He will be crowned the winner and take office as president of Nigeria.
The thronging LP followers and Obidient movement activists in the state, who had contacted him to fly the party’s banner as its governorship candidate, received an apology from Nwankwo.
“I want to apologize to Labour Party, LP, supporters in Ebonyi for not bringing back the ticket, but I want you to reason with me, show me understanding that it was no longer an open competition but the supremacy of the Party, personal interest, and sometimes, you can call it tyranny of the Party and the powers that be, denied us the chance but next time, we can do better,” he said.
He did, however, exhort his supporters to cast a large number of votes for the party’s candidates for the Ebonyi State House of Assembly and for the candidates of their choice for governor.
