The Vice Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in February 23, 2019, Presidential election, Mr. Peter Obi has said that by challenging the outcome of the election in court, the Presidential candidate and the party have chosen the most civilized manner to seek redress and grow our democracy.
Obi eulogized the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar for always standing for democracy and for PDP for successfully nurturing it for 16 years and conducting one of the most credible elections it lost and seamlessly handed over.
Obi in a short statement from his media office soon after they filed petition against the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari and his party, the All Progress Congress, APC in Abuja on Monday, said that all lovers of democracy and justice should be happy with the development.
The former Governor of Anambra state said that it would have been suicidal to ignore the monumental fraud that characterized the February 23 Presidential election and let it go unchallenged.
By challenging the fraud we have decided to deepen democracy the civilized way as a party and a people that believe in the rule of law.
Obi finally called on all democrats to remain prayerful and remain focused knowing that victory is sure to come the way of those who seek justice and fairness.
