Labour Party has rejected an offer for collaboration against President Bola Tinubu, by former Vice President and Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 election, Atiku Abubakar.
The party in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, late Thursday night, said that “Obi is presently in the Supreme Court seeking to reclaim his stolen mandate and he is focused on that.”
While urging everyone “willing to join us in our pursuit of a nation where justice shall reign,” to come on board, Labour Party expressed unwillingness to stop the pursuit to reclaim its electoral mandate.
The party’s statement comes in the wake of calls by PDP’s Atiku, on Obi and the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, to join his quest to establish a case of certificate forgery against President Bola Tinubu of the APC who was declared the winner of the February poll by INEC, in controversial circumstances.
Atiku at a World Press Conference on Thursday in Abuja, urged the duo to join hands with him in what seems as a move to an upturn President Tinubu’s tenure.
But LP in the statement explained that Obi “has been in the vanguard of ensuring a just nation where justice must be the watchword, and he will not stop until Nigeria achieves a leadership it truly deserves.
Obi has pontificated severally on the need for leaders to be good role models and to live a life worthy of emulation. This he has done by publicly putting his credentials in the open for verification. Nigeria will get better when men of integrity and honour drive the affairs of the nation.”
