The Labour Party (LP) has rejected the rulings of the Presidential Election Petitions Court in the party’s suit against INEC’s declaration of Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the February 25, 2023 presidential election.
LP’s National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, in a statement after the court’s ruling on Wednesday, said justice was not served and that the party will make its next move known upon consultation with its lawyers after receiving the Certified True Copy of the judgements, Channels Television reported.
He noted that the court’s ruling “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,” the statement partly read.
“What is at stake is democracy and we will not relent until the people will 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 judgement is made available to us.”
