The Labour Party (LP) Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi, has replied prominent Nigerians and traditional rulers urging him to concede defeat to Nigeria's President-elect. During an interview on Arise TV, Peter Obi was asked if he will listen to prominent Nigerians who are saying that he should see the outcome of the presidential poll as God's wish. Reacting, the LP Presidential candidate said that he disagrees with them, adding that he doesn't see the outcome as God's wish.
He said that one of the problems of Nigeria is accepting wrong things as God's wish. He said that what they are asking him to do is not God's plan for Nigeria, making it clear that the electoral process was flawed and he won't accept it.
"I respect the prominent Nigerians but I disagree with them. What they are preaching is the problem of Nigeria, which is accepting what is unacceptable as God's wish. What they are saying is not God's wish or plan for Nigeria. We have clear laws about the conduct of this election. If the results were uploaded from the polling units, we wouldn't be here right now. It is not God's wish that we do the wrong thing."
