Following the just concluded 2023 general election that saw INEC announce APC Presidential Candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the winner after defeating close opponents Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party and Peter Obi of the Labour Party to become the next president of Nigeria.
Also it should be recalled that both Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar rejected Tinubu's victory, querying the election process and the performance of the INEC, thereby resulting in going to court.
However, Festus Keyamo, the Federal Minister of State for Labour and Employment of Nigeria, said via his official Twitter account that the Labour Party's Peter Obi cannot come to the court to ask to be declared winner straightaway because they still have to fight the PDP in order to prove they came in second and can face Tinubu's APC.
In his words, "Peter Obi & Labour Party cannot even come to court & ask to be declared winner straightaway; they have to first fight PDP in order to prove they came second, before they can have the temerity to face @officialABAT. So, there is no room for cooperation b/w Labour & PDP in court."
