Abure urged LP members to remain vigilant and ready to counter the ruling party’s actions.

The LP chairman emphasized that the APC was aware of the challenging circumstances it faced in the ongoing legal battle over the presidential election results, as declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

During the virtual meeting led by Professor Eddie Oparaoji, LP Diaspora Chairman in the United States, Abure conveyed the party’s concerns. A statement released by LP National Publicity Secretary Obiora Ifoh on Monday shed light on the matter.

Abure was quoted in the statement, stating, “Rumours have it that those in government are already planning for rerun and this is one of the support 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 should not be taken unawares.

The LP chairman further called upon the party’s over 10 million members to be “on the alert and get ready to further humiliate APC and its government in the polls if their sinister plot fails to materialize.”

Abure asserted, ” So, we will be needing your engagement and support on this aspect if par adventure it happens today, that 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.

Confident in their victory, Abure added, “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 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.

“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 for the downtrodden people of Nigeria.”

In contribution, Ambassador Oseloka Obaze, Director of the ObiDatti Presidential Campaign, addressed the diaspora members of Obi-Datti during the discussion, urging them to consider the fight for reclaiming the party’s mandate as a collective responsibility.
