Mr. Julius Abure, the National Chairman of the Labour Party, has urged party members to exercise caution after learning that the All Progressives Congress, APC, was likely planning for a potential rerun of the 2023 presidential election.
This, he said, was due to the ruling party’s awareness that the ongoing legal challenge to the results of the presidential election as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, was strongly stacked against it.
Abure made this statement yesterday in Abuja during an online meeting with the Nigerian-American Coalition for Justice and Democracy, which is chaired by Professor Eddie Oparaoji, the chairman of the Labour Party’s diaspora in the United States.
According to a statement from the party’s acting national publicity secretary, Obiora Ifoh, Abure urged the party’s more than 10 million members to be “on the alert and get ready to further humiliate APC and its government in the polls if their sinister plot fails to materialise.”
Abure said, “Rumours have it that those in government are already planning for rerun and this is one of the support we will be canvasing from you.
“We should also be getting prepared because since all those in government are already preparing for rerun, we should not be taken unawares.
“So, we will be needing your engagement and support on this aspect if par adventure it happens today, that the election is nullified which is not what we are asking for because we are asking for an outright declaration of Peter Obi as the President of Nigeria.
“We believe strongly that we won that election given the statistics we have, given the result we have, we are not expecting anything less than the declaration of Peter Obi as the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. But supposing that didn’t happen as the government is believed to be planning for a rerun it will not also be out of place for we to be preparing for a rerun election.
“Having said this by the side, I must say clearly that we have put all our evidence before the court we are very hopeful that the tribunal will act on our favour.
“We are very hopeful that supposing the matter gets to the higher court, the Supreme Court, in this case, it will also act in our favour. We are keeping our hope and confidence alive.
“In nine months we are able to change the political narratives of this country and we must build on that successes and so that we can have a more formidable party that we can strategically position fro the downtrodden people of Nigeria.”
