Obi, Atiku, Kwankwaso Merger: ‘Half Of The Things You’re Hearing Are Rumours,’ – Obi
Speaking at a mega rally in Edo State ahead of the local government elections in the state, Obi told thousands of party supporters that some of the things they are hearing everywhere were rumours.
“Labour Party will continue to grow. We will continue to go stronger (and) better. Half of the things you are hearing everywhere are rumours, don’t listen to them. We are committed to building a better and a new Nigeria where we will move Nigeria from consumption to production,” Obi said to loud cheers from the crowd.
Meanwhile reports reaching RPTVBLOG says that the trio are gearing up for possibilities as the country continues its transition process.
The report stated that the three leaders have decided to wait and watch the outcome of the election petitions in court, which would determine the second leg of the decision, should the court verdict go south.
For instance, sources privy to some of the discussions hinted that the leaders were hopeful that the presidential election tribunal would be “just and fair” enough to establish that the election that brought President Bola Tinubu to office could not stand any decent electoral test and, as such, do the needful.
Although they have not got to the point of discussing who will lead the opposition, they are leaving it out for now till after the court cases.
There are possibilities that the presidential tribunal might rule for a re-rum election.
An earlier report confirmed that the trio had held preliminary meetings in the build-up to the final verdict of the presidential election petition tribunal. Sources privy to these meetings confirmed that all three leaders have agreed to merge if the tribunal’s verdict calls for a re-run election.
Both Atiku and Obi are challenging the results declared by INEC in court, with the tribunal reserving judgement in the suits after the parties concerned concluded their arguments and submitted their final written addresses.
