Peter Obi: We will prove we won Nigeria election

Peter Obi

One of the losing candidates in Nigeria’s presidential election, Peter Obi, has reiterated his criticism of the poll.

He said people had been robbed at the ballot box and pledged to prove through the courts that he had won.

“We won the election and we will prove it to Nigerians,” Mr Obi said at a news conference in Abuja.

The Labour Party candidate got 25% of the votes — behind Atiku Abubakar and the winner Bola Tinubu, who got 37%.

Mr Obi’s campaign was especially popular with young Nigerians, many of whom feel let down by the two parties that have dominated the political scene.

He has urged his supporters to be calm and peaceful and await the court ruling.
