Peter Obi while speaking during the Twitter event just a few hours before the Monday, May 29th inauguration of Tinubu as the new President of Nigeria, he stated that he is not giving up or backing down on his resolve to secure “his mandate.”
The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate added that he is very much aware that it is going to be a long battle but he remains focused and won’t give up.
He however urged his followers and supporters not to give up, but continue praying for Nigeria and do the right thing always.
He said, “I didn’t start this journey in a single day; I knew it’s not going to be easy. The inauguration will strengthen me.”
“I know how dampened you are that your effort did not come the way you wished. We are in a battle with an entrenched establishment. We are in a long battle. Even me, I know that the journey ahead is tough; they will make allegations, blackmail, and all sorts of things, but I am ready.
“I thank you for your sacrifice and I ask that you do not feel dampened. Thanks for the sacrifice; thanks for being part of this greatness.
“Please as we go through this pain, let us stay together. Let us do the right thing. Nobody can claim to be a saint, I am not. I could have done something unknowingly in the past. “I plead that you stay focused. This is about transformation which takes time.”
