LP Supporters Are Having Fake Imagination About The Law – Sam Omatseye

In a recent Facebook post, Sam Omatseye, a renowned Nigerian novelist, expressed his belief that supporters of the Labour Party's presidential candidate, Peter Gregory Obi, have a false understanding of the country's laws. Omatseye argued that their belief that filing a petition against President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu could prevent his inauguration reflects a misguided imagination about the legal system.

It is worth noting that Peter Gregory Obi, the Labour Party's presidential candidate, had challenged the victory of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the All Progressive Congress candidate, in court. Obi claimed that Tinubu was unlawfully declared the president-elect of Nigeria by the electoral commission.

Omatseye maintained that the supporters of Peter Gregory Obi and the Labour Party cannot assert that a petition can halt the inauguration of President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu when the law clearly dictates otherwise. He emphasized that their belief in such an outcome is merely a product of imagination and not based on the reality of the legal framework.

Omatseye quoted the phrase, "imagination is more important than knowledge," suggesting that the supporters may be expanding their knowledge but in a false and misguided manner. He argued that one can only reimagine a situation when there are ambiguities or alternative possibilities within the law. However, since the law is clear in this case, he criticized their insistence on pursuing an unlikely outcome.

In conclusion, Omatseye urged supporters to recognize the truth and adhere to the established legal framework. He referenced a biblical quote to emphasize the importance of aligning actions with the truth.

The matter at hand raises questions about the intersection of legal processes and public perception. The opinions and interpretations of individuals like Omatseye contribute to the ongoing dialogue surrounding the electoral dispute and its potential impact on the political landscape.
