APC group stages protest in Abuja, warning Obi and Atiku supporters
The Abuja chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has taken their frustration to the streets to protest the refusal of the opposition parties to accept the already declared result. APC group stages protest in Abuja, warning Obi and Atiku supporters, who were candidates in the most recent presidential election, not to intimidate the court system in challenging the election results.
The APC Group asserts that the candidate for their party, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, won the election through a free and fair process, and that the loss in Lagos state should have been impossible. The group praised Tinubu’s election strategy and emphasised the importance of the judiciary in upholding democracy. APC group stages protest in Abuja calling out Atiku and his supporters.
The group also directed a message to the PDP candidate, Atiku Abubakar, suggesting that if his party is not tired of him, he should retire or reset and re-contest again in the future. They criticised Atiku’s inconsistency in political parties and emphasised that the Supreme Court, Appeal Court, and Tribunal are not about him, but about the rule of law.
Below is their speech and demands.
“The Obidients should understand that Asiwaju is a political juggernaut and election strategist. They were all part of the plan because the candidature of Peter Obi was an asset to the APC,” he said.
“The Obidients made Tinubu’s victory easy, they all made it possible. Ordinarily, it should have been Obi or Tinubu. Tinubu was not in the best position to steal the election but he planned well and worked vigorously for victory.
“We also have a message for the PDP candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar; Your Excellency, it is your time to test the court and not to intimidate the court. It is your time to retreat and retire or reset and re-contest again if your party is not tired of you.
“Your inability to be consistent in a party like Bola Ahmed Tinubu shows it is all about you alone. No sir, the Supreme court is not about you, the Appeal court is not about you, and even the Tribunal is not about you, it is about rule of law.
“So, today we are putting the nation on notice that no one will be allowed to intimidate the Nigerian judiciary any longer, we will not entertain it. These judges and the judiciary are the most crucial party of the hope that democracy holds.

“We want to say categorically that Bola Ahmed Tinubu of APC won the election. The Lagos state he lost should have been a taboo but the Democrat in him publicly accepted the outcome without calling for anybody’s head.”
This protest was as a result of Obi’s decision to challenge the process and outcome of the election. The two candidates of the major political parties, Labour party (LP) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has vowed not to allowed the election saga go continue.
So far, Obi has called on all his supporters to remain calm amidst the political tension and rivalries in the country. APC group stages protest in Abuja always to discourage other aggrieved parties from seeking court redress.

He has urged them to take take their anger to the polls but massively coming out to vote all LP’s gubernatorial and the state house of assembly candidates.
Obi is committed to chasing the course of reclaiming mandate which was stolen from him through rigging. Obi is confident that he won the elections and would be taking the case to the court to prove that he won. Similar occurrence happened when Chris Ngige robbed his off his mandate in 2003 gubernatorial election in Anambra.
