Chief Bode George, the former national chairman of the People's Democratic Party, has responded to allegations that Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party, is contesting the APC's victory in court. You may recall that shortly after the election, Peter Obi held a news conference in which he claimed to be certain in the evidences they have that the just-concluded election outcome was falsified.
Peter Obi has shown incredible bravery by going to court to challenge the results of the election, as Chief Bode George noted in an interview with the Punch newspaper. He further confirmed that the election was tainted by widespread acts of thuggery and compromise on the part of several INEC Officials, most notably in Lagos state. He claimed that Peter Obi could prevail in court with the help of hard evidence presented to the APEX tribunal.
He stated, "If he can go there and show his case and prove the numbers that he has and the numbers that Yakubu and his team gave him, then he would have my full support."
