The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 general election, Peter Obi, has asked his supporters known as Obidients and others to remain calm and law-abiding ahead of the May 29 inauguration of President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The former Anambra state governor admonished this while speaking to journalists after an event he attended in Kaduna on Saturday, May 27, 2023.
According to the LP flagbearer, it is only the court of law will decide the actual winner of the poll in due course. He also asked Nigerians to work for the progress and development of the country.
He pointed out that the unity, peace, and security of the country is more paramount than any other interest.
He said, “We must continue to live on the path of peace, religious harmony, ethnic harmony, coexistence, that is the most important thing for now.
“Let’s have a peaceful, quiet Nigeria where government will concentrate on caring for the sufferings of the people.”
He said despite there are issues with the last general elections, Nigerians need to work together in peace to confront the common challenge of insecurity, poverty, education and other very important aspects of the nation’s existence.
Also speaking at the event, the Labour Party Presidential candidate, Senator Datti Baba-Ahmed appealed to the incoming government at all levels, to address the high youth unemployment, poverty, and insecurity, especially in the Northern region, noting that those were the very critical areas where urgent attention is needed.
