The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has disclosed that until the court decide on the process of the election he would not accept any offer to be part of Bola Tinubu’s Government of National Unity.
Recall Tinubu, the president-elect and his party, the All Progressives Congress have been summoned to court by Obi over the outcome of the February 25 election.
The camp of the APC candidate had disclosed that the Tinubu would form an all-inclusive government to invite all his opponents to be part of his government.
Obi, during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Thursday, Obi was asked how would he react if he was called upon to be a member of Tinubu’s Government of National Unity.
Responding, Obi said he was still challenging the process of the election and the declaration.
He stressed that the process of the election should be corrected first before anyone could talk of the Government of National Unity.
“The first thing I want to see is that the process is right. The process through which you achieve anything is far more fundamental than what you do thereafter. Let us go back first, I am challenging the process and the declaration.
“Until we get it right, then we can talk about a government of national unity. Otherwise, we would go and sit down and say that those who stopped a train and kidnapped people can call us to discuss peace when they have people in captivity. Until things are done rightly, we will be encouraging what we don’t need to encourage,” he said.
Asked whether or not he would accept the outcome if it is not in his favour, Obi said he would be shocked if the court upholds Tinubu’s election.
His words, “Issues about the election will be sorted out in court. I will be shocked if this country goes on with that situation. It will then stand that it is a corporate criminalized country. We can’t allow it. We need to start unbundling this criminality.
“When people were talking about structure, it is this fraud and criminality that we witnessed that they were talking about, and we want to unbundle it for the sake of our children.”
Obi stated that he believes the judiciary would do the right thing.
