The Labour Party has disagreed with the decision of the Presidential Election Petition Court, led by Justice Haruna Tsammani, which dismissed their petition against President Bola Tinubu’s election.
In a statement released by its National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, the party expressed dissatisfaction, stating that they believe justice was not upheld and that the ruling did not align with the law or the will of the people.
The party has indicated that they will disclose their future course of action after consulting with their legal team and examining the certified true copy of the judgment.
The statement read: “The Labour Party watched with dismay and trepidation the dismissal of petitions by the five-man panel of the Presidential Election Petition Court led by Justice Haruna Tsammani today and we reject the outcome of the judgment in its entirety because justice was not served and it did not reflect the law and the desire of the people.
“Nigerians were witnesses to the electoral robbery that took place on February 25, 2023, which was globally condemned but the Tribunal in its wisdom refused to accept the obvious.
“What is at stake is democracy and we will not relent until the will of the people prevail.
We salute the doggedness of our team of lawyers who fearlessly exposed the wrath in our system. We can only weep for democracy in Nigeria but we refuse to give up on Nigeria.
“Details of the party’s position will be presented after consultation with our lawyers after the Certified True Copy of the judgment
“We urge all lovers of democracy to remain focused and hopeful because a new Nigeria is possible.”
