” when that body fails as it did recently, those subverting the will of Nigerian voters recourse to judiciary becomes imperative as is now the case.i thank every Nigerian who have supported our course and campaign for a new Nigeria , characterised by fairness , equity ,Justice , rule of law ,peace , prosperity , inclusiveness, Sustainable growth and developments. a new Nigeria is possible and achievable. I specially thank our legal team , the Labour Party and the Obidient family and all those who showed up daily during our court trials, God bless you all and God bless the Federal republic of Nigeria.”
