Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), says he is challenging Bola Tinubu’s victory in the February 25 presidential poll.

TheCable reported that the LP candidate in a chat with Arise TV on Monday said he was not interested in challenging the “outcome” of the election, but rather, in the process leading to the declaration of Tinubu as the president-elect.

However, in a post on his official Twitter handle, Obi said he is also challenging the process leading to the declaration of Tinubu as the president-elect.

“Following my response to a question while appearing on Arise TV earlier today, I want to state categorically that at the Presidential Elections Tribunal (PET), I am challenging the INEC electoral process that led to the declaration of Tinubu as president-elect as well as the declaration itself,” Obi said.

Enoch Adeboye, general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), says God will soon deliver the common man from powerful people making life miserable for them.

In a sermon on Sunday, Adeboye said some people in positions of power make life difficult and cause havoc for ordinary people.

“At the beginning of this year, the Almighty God said that some balloons will burst,” he said.

“I am looking forward to seeing those balloons burst because there are some people who are making life miserable for the common man. They have the power to do so, and they are in a position to wreak havoc on people.

“They are using that power to make the common man miserable. Some balloons need to burst. By the time God finished with Nebuchadnezzar, he knew who was the most high God”.

Adeboye further stated that those who attempt to stop the spread of the gospel “would be eaten by worms”.
