The Labour Party (LP) has called on its members and supporters to be alert and prepare for a rerun of the Presidential Elections.
According to the statement, Abure made the call during an online meeting held with Nigerian-American Coalition for Justice and Democracy led by Professor Eddie Oparaoji, the Labour Party Diaspora Chairman in the United States.
The statement, “Rumours have it that those in government are already planning for a rerun and this is one of the supports we will be canvasing from you. We should also be getting prepared because since all those in government are already preparing for a rerun, we too should not be taken unawares.
“So, we will be needing your engagement and support on this aspect if peradventure it happens today, the election is nullified, which is not what we are asking for because we are asking for an outright declaration of Peter Obi as the President of Nigeria.
“We believe strongly that we won that election given the statistics we have, given the result we have, we are not expecting anything less than the declaration of Peter Obi as the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“But supposing that didn’t happen as the government is believed to be planning for a rerun, it will not also be out of place for us to be preparing for a rerun election.
“Having said this by the side, I must say clearly that we have put all our evidence before the court; we are very hopeful that the tribunal will act in our favour. And we are very hopeful that supposing the matter gets to the higher court, the Supreme Court, in this case, it will also act in our favour. We are keeping our hope and confidence alive.
“In nine months, we are able to change the political narratives of this country and we must build on that successes so that we can have a more formidable party that we can strategically position from the downtrodden people of Nigeria”.
