Apostle Johnson Suleman, Senior Pastor and Founder of Omega Fire Ministries, has responded to Peter Obi's legal action challenging Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu's election victory as President-elect of Nigeria.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Tinubu the victor of the presidential election on February 25 last week.
According to INEC, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Obi of the Labour Party were defeated by Tinubu to win the election.

Soon after INEC's announcement, Obi and Atiku filed a lawsuit, saying that there had been election manipulation. The pair asserted that they had won the hotly disputed election.
Apostle Suleman appears in a video that has now surfaced on the internet asking candidates to stop pursuing legal action to reclaim their stolen mandates.
In his response to the viral video trending on social media, Apostle Suleman said that the video trending on social media was part of his message from 2015 to 2019, and that it doesn’t fit with the current times. A tweet from Apostle Suleman reiterated his support for the former Governor of Anambra State, telling the public to disregard the video due to the fact that it has nothing to do with Obi.
I just heard that there's a video where I tell people to ignore the courts after the 2015 or 2019 elections like I said recently Lol I'm solidly behind Peter Obi going to court I've never said otherwise in secret or public, disregard,” the cleric wrote on Twitter.
