The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Mr Peter Obi, has assured Nigerians, especially the youths, that he would prove in court that he won the presidential election held last Saturday.

Speaking on Thursday at a press briefing in Abuja, the former Governor of Anambra State said he would adhere to the advice of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) that all aggrieved contestants should seek redress in court.

According to him, he would challenge the process for the future of the country, stressing that the electoral body did not follow the guidelines it set for the exercise.

“If you must be addressed as ‘Your Excellency’, the process that brought you in must be excellent.

“I am assuring all the good people of Nigeria that we will explore every legal and peaceful means to reclaim our mandate because we won the election,” he disclosed.

However, he urged the Nigerian youths to remain calm and not take to violence.

“No matter how long the night is, there will be day… I’m going to go through this darkness with them (the youths). The structure that created millions of people living under poverty can’t go out overnight,” he declared.

But he lamented that “63 years of independence, we can’t conduct elections, we can’t produce enough food to feed ourselves, no stable electricity, no good road or healthcare.”

Mr Obi charged Nigerians not to be discouraged about the outcome of last Saturday’s polls, telling them to vote in the Saturday, March 11, 2023, governorship election, assuring them that a new Nigeria is POssible.
