I will not give up until victory is achieved, Peter Obi vows



PEPT Judgement: Tribunal rejects 10 out of 13 witnesses presented by Obi

Peter Obi, the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate on Tuesday vowed that he will not give up until victory is achieved, supposedly referring to his bid to become Nigeria’s president.

Obi noted that he would remain steadfast in his bid to reclaim his mandate for a New Nigeria.

Chronicle NG reports that Peter Obi placed third in the presidential elections which produced Bola Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress as president-elect.

Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) finished second ahead of Peter Obi. The PDP and LP has since filed legal suits urging the court to cancel the election citing voter suppression, vote manipulation and violence.

In a renewed call to his supporters, Obi said, “I encourage Nigerians to remain calm and steadfast in the journey to reclaiming their mandate of a New Nigeria. I will never give up on this journey until victory is achieved.


“I never expected the journey to a New Nigeria to be an easy one. The forces, who had over the years, lived off the old order, are bound to fight back, as is being experienced now.

Peter Obi noted that he had resolved to match any opposition. “If they come at us through land, air and sea, we will respond to them through land, air and sea but, we will remain law abiding and will never give up on the nation. We are on the right path and we will remain committed to the course.

“I reiterate my commitment to building a Nigeria that will be beneficial to every Nigerian. The struggle to reclaim this mandate is not about me as a person but, about millions of Nigerians who placed their trust in me through their votes.

“The millions of Nigerians who voted for me did not just cast their votes but, they invested their hopes in me and they deserve justice. So, we must stay the course.

“Beyond regaining our mandate, I am committed to lifting people out of poverty and I remain committed to transforming Nigeria starting from the North to every part of the nation,” Peter Obi said.


“There may be more mud slinging from those who are against the emergence of the New Nigeria but, I would never be deterred by the obstacles along the way to victory. I have always lived my life in the most law abiding manner.

“Sometimes as humans, we make mistakes but, I will never knowingly break any law. I am therefore not afraid of the lies and propaganda against my person. They are part of the journey to a New Nigeria,” he said.
