PEPC: LP Rejects Tribunal's Verdict

The Labour Party (LP) has rejected the Presidential Election Petitions Court’s (PEPC) judgements in the party’s petitions contesting President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) electoral win in the February 25, 2023 election.

Obiora Ifoh, the LP’s National Publicity Secretary, said in a statement following the Tribunal’s decision on Wednesday that justice had not been given in the party’s lawsuits against the APC and Tinubu.

He also stated that the Labour Party will make its next action after consulting with its lawyers and receiving the Certified True Copy of the judgements. According to the party, the court’s decision “did not reflect the law and the desire of the people.”

“Nigerians were witnesses to the electoral robbery that took place on February 25, 2023, which was globally condemned but the Tribunal in its wisdom refused to accept the obvious,” the statement partly read.

“What is at stake is democracy and we will not relent until the people will prevail.

“We salute the doggedness of our team of lawyers who fearlessly exposed the wrath in our system. We can only weep for democracy in Nigeria but we refuse to give up on Nigeria.

“Details of the party’s position will be presented after consultation with our lawyers after the Certified True Copy of the judgment is made available to us.”
