JUST IN: “PEPC Will Not Likely Grant Obi’s Prayers To Cancel The Election And Order A New One, Peter Obi Has No Case, Expect Premium Tears From Obidients”- Says Reno Omokri

As the judgment day for the petition filed by Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi against President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu approaches, political pundits and observers are sharing their opinions about the anticipated outcome. At the forefront of these commentators is Reno Omokri, who has expressed his skepticism about Obi’s chances.

The Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) is currently in session, with top members from Nigeria’s three major parties in attendance. Among those present are Kashim Shettima, Julius Abure, Abdullahi Ganduje, Femi Gbajabiamila, Nuhu Ribadu, and Bala Mohammed.

Omokri, in his analysis of Obi’s petition against President Tinubu, stated, “The likelihood of the PEPC granting Peter Obi’s plea to annul the 2023 Nigerian elections and call for a re-run is slim. Firstly, Obi hasn’t adequately proven his case, primarily because he doesn’t have a solid one. The repercussions to Nigeria far surpass the individual benefits to Obi.”

Drawing attention to some apparent inconsistencies, Omokri remarked, “Obi is hinging his arguments on technicalities, aiming to invalidate the nominations of President Tinubu and his deputy. Yet, Obi’s own nomination as the Labour Party candidate seems questionable. It’s debatable if Obi was even listed on the Labour Party’s register submitted to INEC.”

“Given these technicalities, Obi might find himself on the losing end. Prepare for disappointment and intense propaganda from Obi’s supporters,” Omokri added. “Meanwhile, Atiku’s petitions are more grounded, pointing out INEC’s lapses and urging that based on these inconsistencies, he be declared the winner.”

Omokri concluded with a call to uphold democracy, “No matter the judgment’s direction, it’s crucial that our democracy remains strong. I back the Nigerian police’s commitment to maintain order and stability. I also urge ‘Obidients’ to exercise restraint. Nigeria remains united despite political disputes.
