People Said It Was Impossible To Become A Governor Through Court And I Became The First - Peter Obi

The Labour Party Presidential Candidate and former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Gregory Obi was today live on a program at Channels Television where several topics were raised and openly discussed as regard the emerging issues surrounding the outcome of the last presidential election results.

Recalled that the Presidential and National Assembly elections in Nigeria took place across various polling units in the country last month 25th which resulted to announcing the ruling All Progressives Congress Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the winner and President-Elect of Nigeria.

Ever since the official announcement and declaration was made by the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Professor Mahmood Yakubu, the top candidates from the opposition parties have filed a case to challenge the process which they felt it was not credible enough for a winner to be announced.

Going by this, a question was thrown at Peter Obi on the live program as to whether he is confident in the judiciary as he was when he retrieved his mandate during his time as the Governor of Anambra State.

With this done through the legal process back then, he was then asked if people should be looking to see if thunder will strike for the second time.

Peter Obi while responding to this question made it known that he is fully confident in the judiciary as he was then, as people told him that he could never become a Governor through the court process but he eventually became the first as he wrote another story and changed the old narration in that regard.

"I am confident in the Judiciary system. People said it was impossible to become a Governor through the court, and I became the first. Remember, I was impeached".
