The Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has revealed that he will be heading to court today (Wednesday March 8th) with his team of lawyers after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) refused to allow his party to inspect the materials that were used for the February 25th presidential election. He made this known in a series of tweets he released on Wednesday morning.
Sending a message to his supporters who are popularly known as Obidients, Obi urged them to respect the sanctity of the court premises and give the legal team allow the legal team to have a peaceful environment to carry out their duties.
Speaking further, he told the Obidients to go about their normal businesses, and not come to the court premises to turn it into a rally ground.
He said - "As we go about seeking redress for our stolen mandate, I plead with Obidients to respect the sanctity of the court premises and give our legal team the space and peaceful environment to carry out their duties. The court premises is not and should not be turned into a rally ground. I urge the Obidients to go about their businesses peacefully."
Peter Obi's statement is coming after some Obidients began declaring interest on social media to storm the court premises to show their solidarity for him.
Many are waiting for what will be the outcome of the case today.
