Tinubu May Be Sworn-In May 29, I Will Still Get Justice – Peter Obi

The Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate in 2023, Peter Obi, has confirmed that President-elect Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu would be sworn in as Nigeria’s next president on May 29.

In contrast, the former Anambra State Governor has not given up on retrieving his allegedly stolen mandate, expressing confidence in achieving justice in court even after Tinubu may have replaced President Muhammadu Buhari.

Obi recalls reclaiming his mandate as Governor of Anambra State from Chris Ngige (current Minister of Labour and Employment in Nigeria) three years after being sworn in.

According to WITHIN NIGERIA, pre-trials at the Presidential Election Tribunal finished on Tuesday, and the trial itself is set to begin on Tuesday, May 30.

Petitioners have been allocated three weeks, less than the purported seven weeks they asked, from May 30 to June 23 to submit their case.

Obi, speaking via his spokesman, Diran Onifade, mentioned multiple examples of persons being recalled after being sworn in, and expressed optimism that the court would bring him justice soon or later.

Ngige served as governor of Anambra State for three years until being ousted after his election was revealed to be fraudulent. Emeka Ihedioha in Imo was just requested to leave for Hope Uzodimma, and so on. As a result, it’s not a huge problem. That is not how the system works. Despite the fact that some people believe someone will utilize presidential powers to limit the court and everything. In our system, there is a separation of powers.

When you go to court, you expect to obtain justice, and I’ve given instances of individuals who have received justice in the Nigerian legal system. We can’t simply dismiss them. As for us, Onifade told DailySun on Wednesday evening, “We trust them (the court) because our constitution does not give us an option.”
