The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party in the just concluded presidential election, Peter Obi, on Thursday tearfully narrated his encounter with an unemployed graduate from Nasarawa.
Obi, while addressing journalist in Abuja, during a press conference, stated that he met the young graduate who works as a tea maker.
“She has no job, she graduated since 2018. She told me she is learning how to bake. Then I asked her why she is not baking instead of coming here to do this, she said she doesn’t have N75,000 to buy an oven. That is the life you get in Nigeria; people who don’t have N75,000 to buy an oven,” Obi tearfully said.
Also during the press conference, Obi stated that he would be exploring legal options to reclaim his mandate.
“We will explore all legal and peaceful option to reclaim our mandate. We won the election and we will prove it to Nigerians,” Obi said at a press conference on Thursday in Abuja.
“I am challenging the process,” Obi declared to a room full of journalists at Nigeria’s capital city, his first media appearance after the declaration of a winner by the electoral umpire.
“This is very unfair. It is the least expected of Nigeria,” he said.
