I'M SUFFERING & SMILING— Peter Obi CONFESSES To Lawyer Who Asked Him How He Was Doing

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi, who is among the leading petitioners seeking to void the election of the President- elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has many of his supporters and followers talking as he makes a brand- new, explosively emotional statement during the petition hearings currently taking place at the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC).

In a recent video that went viral online, posted by popular YouTube channel, Symfoni, Mr. Peter Obi, the Labour Party' s presidential candidate, can be seen exiting his car and walking toward the courtroom where his case against Tinubu would be decided.

Peter Obi encountered a few attorneys as he made his way to the courthouse, and one of them inquired about his wellbeing.

Peter Obi' s response to the lawyer was rather unexpected because he acknowledged that he was in pain while also grinning.

" Good morning, sir. How are you doing? " the lawyer enquired. " I' m suffering and smiling, " he said in response. Mr. Obi' s response made a lot of onlookers giggle.

When they saw this, a lot of individuals were astounded and responded to the post strongly, while others shared their ideas and opinions on what they had seen.

While this is going on, the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC), which just started meeting, has issued a strong warning to all attorneys for presidential candidates who have filed petitions with the court, advising them to avoid pointless technicalities and focus on the substance and their requests instead.

The five- man panel, making up Chief Registrar of the Court of Appeal, Haruna Tsammani; Justice Stephen Adah of the Court of Appeal, Asaba division; Justice Misitura Bolaji- Yusuf, Court of Appeal, also of Asaba Division; Justice Boloukuoromo Ugoh of Kano division; and Justice Abba Mohammed of Ibadan Court of Appeal, kicked off its proceedings yesterday for the hearing of petitions presented by dissatisfied candidates against the declaration of Tinubu.

Justice Tsammani, the PEPC' s presiding justice, gave reassurance that justice will be done by saying: " We are determined to look at the matter dispassionately and give justice to whoever deserves justice. "
