Why Peter Obi Believed PEPC Would Declare Him Winner – Yunusa Tanko

Dr. Tanko Yunusa, the national spokesperson for the Peter Obi/Labour Party (LP), 2023 Presidential Campaign Committee, has outlined why his principal believed he would prevail in his appeal at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT).

According to, Obi had already indicated his certainty that he would be proclaimed the winner of the presidential race on a number of occasions before to the Tribunal judgement.

When the PEPT justices affirmed President Bola Tinubu’s victory, it was the exact opposite, though.

According to Tanko, who spoke with The Sun about the PEPT judgement, Obi had faith in the PEPC and the legal system and was certain he would be proclaimed the winner.

Many Nigerians, he claimed, had hoped that the judiciary would have the guts to upturn the election result because of the glaring evidence.

According to him, “Many Nigerians expected that the judiciary would be courageous enough to upturn the election considering the humongous evidence that were presented before the court. Our principal, Peter Obi had so much faith in the PEPC and the judiciary, and so also did we in the labour Party but when we see them skin off basic fundamental truths, it is important for the people to air their views on the matter.

“There are different views and opinions on the judgement of the PEPC but the most important thing is that the verdict of the Justices is a classical rape on Nigeria’s democracy and that did not go down well on many Nigerians.”
