Festus Keyamo, spokesman for the All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential Campaign Committee, APC, has revealed why the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi, cannot appear in court to demand that he be proclaimed the winner of the presidential election.
Obi, according to Keyamo, must fight the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to establish he came in second place.
He stated that if they can prove they came in second place, they will be able to take over the presidency from President-Elect Bola Tinubu.
"Peter Obi & Labour Party cannot even come to court & beg to be declared winner directly," Keyamo stated in a tweet.
"They have to first battle PDP in order to establish they came second, before they can have the chutzpah to face @officialABAT. As a result, there is no possibility for collaboration between Labour and the PDP in court."
Obi finished third in last Saturday's presidential election, trailing the PDP's Atiku Abubakar and Tinubu, who was declared the winner.
