Peter Obi has described the Supreme Court judgment that affirmed Bola Tinubu’s election as Nigeria’s president as a breach of citizens' trust in the judiciary.

“Without equivocation, this judgment amounts to a total breach of the confidence the Nigerian people have in our judiciary. To that extent, it is a show of unreasonable force against the very Nigerian people from whom the power of the Constitution derives,” Obi stated this during a world press conference at the LP National Headquarters in Abuja on Monday.

He added that "the judgment mixed principles and precepts Indeed, the rationale and premise of the Supreme Court judgment, have become clearer in the light of the deep revealing and troubling valedictory remarks by Hon. Justice Musa Dattijo Muhammad, (JSC) on Friday 27th October 2023.”

LP presidential candidate further added that "our mission and mandate remain unchanged. From the very onset, our mission has been more about enthroning a new Nigeria.”

"Our commitment is to a nation anchored on the principles of prudent management of resources to quickly pull millions out of multidimensional poverty, ensuring transparency and accountability in the equitable distribution of opportunities, resources, and privileges," he noted.

Obi noted that he and his vice presidential candidate, Dr. Datti Baba-Ahmed have exhausted all legal avenues to challenge the 2023 general election and have decided to engage in full opposition.
