Labour party explains why it would be “out of place” for Obi to work with Tinubu government

The leadership of the Labour Party has said that there is no way its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, would work with President Bola Tinubus government. This was disclosed in two separate interviews with the National Publicity Secretary of LP, Obiora Ifoh and the National Legal Adviser of LP, Kehinde Edun. Reacting to the possibility of Obi working with the Tinubu government, the legal adviser of LP said, I think Obi has something he is pursuing, especially when we are sure we won the election. So it will be out of place for us to now say we want to work with this government. As far as LP is concerned, we are waiting for the Supreme Court to set aside the decision of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal that will pronounce Obi as the winner. Thats what we are waiting for. This is why we cannot be talking about Obi, somebody who is the owner of the mandate, working with somebody who is a pretender to the office. Until we see to the end of this case at the Supreme Court, it is not over. The Labour partys National Publicity Secretary also insisted that the LP candidate cant be distracted by such a notion as he is presently focused on reclaiming his stolen mandate from the apex court. The party was reacting to an earlier call by Atiku, for Peter Obi and Rabiu Kwankwaso to join his crusade in exposing the alleged dirty secrets of Tinubu. The Labour partys position is coming six days after Obi shaded the president on Arise TVs Morning Show following the controversy surrounding his academic records at Chicago State University. Obi stated that any leader who falsifies his credentials or age cannot be trusted to do the right thing and is unfit to lead the people. Obi said, We are at the point where we are challenging the process and that has to come to a logical end before any other thing. These are parts of what makes a nation. The processes through which people assume office are far more than what they do thereafter. It is important that people come in through the right door and not just jump in through the window and keep saying Lets move on. The issue of qualification is the issue of leaders making statements and doing things that are honest and truthful. This is an issue of honour and integrity. If you look at what is happening in Nigeria today, there are so many issues of certificates, age, and all sorts of one falsification or the other with the leaders. There is no way people can do this and be able to do the right thing. That means they are living a falsified life. The post Labour party explains why it would be “out of place” for Obi to work with Tinubu government appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
