Obi Reveals Next Action, If INEC Refuses To Obey Court Order to Inspect Materials

Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi has revealed the next step he will take if the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), fails to grant the party permission to inspect the sensitive materials used in the conduct of the February 25, presidential elections.

Obi had gone to court to challenge the outcome and the result announced by INEC which declared APC’s presidential candidate winner of the election.

While he was being interviewed on Arise TV today, Obi was asked about his next steps, as it was reported that INEC had refused to provide the electoral collating materials to be analysed by Labour Party as ordered by the court.

In his reply, the former Anambra governor stated that he will go through both the legal process, by telling the court that INEC was in contempt by not obeying the order given to them, and by a peaceful march protest to INEC’s building to request the collation materials.

He however encouraged Nigerians to remain calm, saying “We will go through all legal peaceful means to bring about a new Nigeria.”
