Kehinde Edun, the Legal Adviser of the Labour Party, expressed the party's lack of concern regarding the recent judgment on the candidacy of Alex Otti and other party candidates in Abia and Kano states. During an interview on Channels Television, Mr Edun stated that the Labour Party is, to some extent, satisfied with the court's decision as it validates the party's claim that the Apapa faction has been bribed to undermine the party.
In his televised statement, Mr Edun conveyed the following sentiments: "We are not worried by the judgment; in fact, we are pleased with it. This verdict serves as evidence supporting our assertion that the Apapa group has been financially supported to destabilize the party. It was the Apapa group that travelled to Kano to initiate the lawsuit, hoping to undermine the party by annulling the election results of our chosen candidates, including Alex Otti. However, their scheme did not succeed. We have confidence in our position, so we remain unperturbed."
