Tinubu Arm Twisting Judges After Forcing His Way Into Aso Rock — LP


The leadership of the Labour Party of Nigeria, has accused President Bola Tinubu of threatening the presidential election petition tribunal judges after forcing his way into power.

Mr Obiora Ifoh, the spokesman of Labour Party, said this in a statement on Tuesday while reacting to Mr Tinubu’s legal team who said during their final defence statement to the tribunal that there will be anarchy if eventually president Tinubu is booted out of office over his failure to score 25% in the federal capital.

“Any other interpretation different from this will lead to absurdity, chaos, anarchy and alteration of the very intention of the legislature,” Mr Tinubu’s lawyers led by Wole Olanipekun said.

Recall that LP and it’s presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi are challenging Tinubu’s victory after accusing the Independent National Electoral Commission of rigging the election in favour of the former.

Meanwhile, the Labour Party has also insisted that no amount of threat by the ruling APC against the judges will alter the “processes and requirements that the law has put in place.”

“We insist that no amount of threat from the APC on the judges in the tribunal can change the processes and requirements that the law has put in place. It must be followed and that is the position of the Labour Party

“Let me assure the APC and their leaders that if there were no absurdity, chaos, and anarchy when they forced their way into power, Nigeria will still witness peace when they are eventually evicted from power.”
