Peter Obi also stated that, he would present 50 witnesses that would testify and tender their evidence to establish that the 2023 presidential election was rigged against him by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to favour the newly elected president.

 

It was reported that Peter Obi, disclosed this on Saturday, during the proceedings on the petition he filed to challenge the president-elect, Bola Tinubu. And while he was addressing the court, through his team of lawyers that were led by Prof. Awa Kalu, SAN, Peter Obi noted that, he was constrained in addition to a few hiccups he encountered at the Independent National Electoral Commission hence the request for seven weeks.Continue Reading>>>

However, while Festus Keyamo, who happens to be the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, and one of the official spokespersons to the All Progressives Congress’Presidential Campaign Council, was reacting to Peter Obi’s plea on his official Twitter handle last night, he said he tried to educate some people last week that, it was the petitioner that needed more time to prove his case against the President-elect but, they did not believe him.

He said, “More than a week ago, I tried to educate some of those calling for the ‘instant’ determination of the Presidential Election Petitions before May 29th that it is even the Petitioners that would need more time to prove their cases.”

Further talking, he said, “Shockingly, some supposedly ‘learned’ fellows goaded the mob to believe otherwise. Now, they can see the process as it unfolds IN REALITY. In the fullness of time, we shall separate the truths from the fantasies.”
