The Labour Party ( LP) Presidential candidate, Peter Obi has said the swearing-in of Bola Tinubu as President of Nigeria will not stop him from reclaiming his mandate.
He said instead, it would strengthen him the more to push to secure his mandate despite Tinubu’s inauguration. Tinubu defeated Obi and the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, during the last presidential election.

Speaking during a Twitter space discussion, Obi, however, said he’s not a saint.
According to Obi: “I didn’t start this journey in a single day; I knew it’s not going to be easy. The inauguration will strengthen me.
“We are in a battle with an entrenched establishment. We are in a long battle.
“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.”
