Following this development, popular member of the All Progressives Congress, Dele Alake, does not believe that the Labour Party candidate will have a strong case to present in court. According to the Politician, Labour Party could not produce enough polling unit agents to monitor the elections, hence there was no way, he believes Peter Obi will be able to get all the information he needs in regard to the elections.
Dele Alake argued that there was no way the Labour party could have successfully competed with the ruling party and its major opponent, the People's Democratic Party.
Dele Asaka reveals that he wonders what evidence the politician will present in court. In his words, he said: "If Labour Party could not fill up its quota for polling booth agents with a shortfall of over 40, 000, how did it intend to compete with political parties like APC and PDP? It would be interesting to see what evidence of rigging Labour Party will present before the court when the party could not appoint agents to monitor nearly a quarter of the venues of election."
