Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, has broken his silence on President-elect Bola Tinubu’s inauguration, which will take place today.
In a recent post, Peter Obi stated that the inauguration of his opposition will motivate him to fight even harder.
Tinubu, who won the February 25, 2023 elections, is expected to be sworn in as the 16th President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on Monday, May 29.
Responding to a question related to the inauguration in a Twitter Space on Sunday, Obi said he would not back down in the fight to secure “his mandate”.
In his words:
“I didn’t start this journey in a single day; I knew it’s not going to be easy. The inauguration will strengthen me. I know how dampened you are that your effort did not come the way you wished. We are in a battle with an entrenched establishment. We are in a long battle. Even me, I know that the journey ahead is tough; they will make allegations, blackmail and all sorts of things, but I am ready.
“I thank you for your sacrifice and I ask that you do not feel dampened. Thanks for the sacrifice; thanks for being part of this greatness. Please as we go through this pain, let us stay together. Let us do the right thing. Nobody can claim to be a saint, I am not. I could have done something unknowingly in the past. I plead that you stay focused. This is about transformation which takes time.”
