As Obidients in the United States prepare to protest the outcome of the 2023 presidential election, Labour Party has stated that the demonstration is not being sponsored by the duo of Peter Obi and Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed.
The protest which is scheduled to take place at the Park opposite the White House has been condemned by the US Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), with its Chairman, Professor Tai Balofin accusing Obi of sponsoring it.
“We wish to inform the public that a group of the Nigerian 2023 Presidential election losers are currently protesting at the park in front of the White House.
“It is important to note that the US government is not involved or in support of the protest as anybody can get approval for a peaceful protest.
“We also wish to state that this protest was sponsored by Peter Obi, who lost the election in Nigeria.
“It is our belief that Nigeria’s presidential election was free and fair, and Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu won the election.
“Majority of Nigerian voters gave him their mandate, and no propaganda, manipulation or tissue of lies can stop his inauguration”, Balofin said.
Reacting to the accusation, Labour Party Spokesman Yunusa Tanko stated that Obi and Baba-Ahmed have been admonishing their followers to be calm.
He added that Obi is not the sponsor of the protest, rather he has told supporters to be calm and adhere to the rule of law.
“There is no presidential candidate that has been in full control and admonishing his supporters to be calm than Obi and Datti.
“The only thing is we are not satisfied with the process that led to the declaration of Tinubu as president-elect.
“We have raised fundamental issues about the process and the process is part of the democratic process.
“Obi has not sponsored anybody to do anything, rather he has urged them to be calm and follow the rule of law.
“However, if Nigerian people are protesting the injury done to them, they have the right. Nobody is sponsoring anybody.”
