2023 Presidency: Why Obi Cannot Be Declared Winner Straightaway In Court - Festus Keyamo

As the controversies surrounding the outcome of the 2023 presidential election intensify, Festus Keyamo, the spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council (PCC), has come to state why Peter Gregory Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, cannot be declared the winner straightaway after challenging the outcome in court.

Recall that Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar of the People's Democratic Party have petitioned the presidential election tribunal over the declaration of Bola Tinubu as the winner of the 2023 presidential election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Both Obi and Atiku stated that the election that produced Tinubu as the president-elect was filled with abnormalities.

Meanwhile, Festus Keyamo, reacting to the Labour Party's chances of winning the case in court, claimed that Obi and his party have to first defeat the People's Democratic Party to prove that they come in second before they could have the audacity to challenge Tinubu.

He stated that Obi and the Labour Party cannot come to court and be declared winners straightaway because they came third in the just concluded presidential election.

Keyamo tweeted, "Peter Obi and the Labour Party cannot even go to court and ask to be declared winners right away; they must first fight the PDP to prove they came in second before they can face Tinubu. As a result, there is no room for collaboration between Labour and the PDP in court."
