On Tuesday, the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate Peter Obi urged the Obidients to campaign for the party’s governorship candidates in the states of Nasarawa, Lagos, Enugu, Abia, Delta, Edo, Rivers, and Plateau. The governorship elections are scheduled to take place on Saturday.
During the elections for governorship and state assembly that took place on Saturday, Obi urged the Obidients to vote for LP candidates in all of the states.
He made the call while bemoaning the fact that he was unable to travel across the country to campaign for the party’s candidates.
Obi wrote the following in a series of tweets: “I am supposed to commence our whistle-stop campaign for our various Labour Party Governorship and State Assembly Candidates today.” In the beginning, the plan was for me to travel to Nasarawa, Lagos, Enugu, Abia, Delta, Edo, Rivers, Plateau, Borno, and other places like that.
“However, following INEC’s refusal to permit our party to inspect the materials (including BVAS) from the presidential elections that took place on the 25th of February, I will personally be heading to the Court today with our lawyers.
“As we pursue due process and defer to the rule of law, I urge all of the Obidients in the various states to continue campaigning for our candidates, including Gbadebo Rhodes Vivour in Lagos, Chijioke Edeoga in Enugu, Patrick Dakum in Plateau, Alex Otti in Abia, Ken Pela in Delta, and Ibrahim Mshelia in Borno, to name a few.”
