Obi condemns attacks on supporters in Lagos

THE candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has condemned attacks on residents believed to have voted for the LP during Saturday’s presidential election in Lagos State.

Deputy Director General and Campaign Manager of the Obi-Datti presidential campaign committee (PCC), Oseloka Obaze, made this known in a statement on Tuesday, February 27.

He expressed regrets that political thugs would single out citizens who exercised their constitutional rights to vote for candidates or parties of their choice.

Obaze noted that the attacks were not limited to indigenes but also targeted at non-indigenes.

He further reiterated the LP’s commitment to political decorum and thanked the party’s supporters and all Nigerians who exercised their fundamental rights to vote according to the dictates of their conscience.



    Obaze acknowledged that there were some irregularities in the elections in several states and that the LP would follow due process and use constitutional means to address its grievances while maintaining peace.

    He also emphasized the party’s commitment to change Nigeria for the better and to defend every vote.

    In the same vein, he called on governments at all levels to recommit to their constitutional responsibility to protect citizens within their territories regardless of their political leanings.

    According to Obaze, the LP remained resolute in its mission to change Nigeria.
