Peter Obi Gives Strong Warning Ahead Of Tribunal Judgment

Labour Party Presidential candidate in the 2023 General Election, Peter Obi has given a new warning to trolls who he alleged were working to smear him and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed ahead of the judgment of the Presidential Election Petition Court, PEPC.

Obi made the assertion in a statement made available to against the background of what he also claimed as his concerns over attempts to distract and defocus the judiciary from the critical assignment of adjudicating issues before it.

In a statement issued by the Obi-Datti Media office by its director, Diran Onifade, the Campaign noted distractions including what it claimed as the now denied allegation made against the Chief Justice of having a secret phone call with President Bola Tinubu and the allegation that a member of the PEPC was resigning, as attempts to distract the judiciary.


“Without a doubt, those behind these strange contrivances have their devious motives, which certainly are not in the national interest. Our Judiciary should not be burdened by these distractions when their entire focus should be on the critical national assignment, which requires their total concentration and everybody’s support and cooperation to conclude.

“It’s indisputable that the future of this country is tied to the outcome of the Judiciary’s assignment. Every hand must be on deck to help them pilot the ship of Nigeria State to safety away from perdition.


“Obi-Datti Media office, therefore, wishes to call on all patriots desirous of seeing a new Nigeria to desist from any action that may hinder the delivery of justice by their Lordships.

Warning about plots to escalate smear campaigns against Peter Obi by trolls ahead of the PEPC judgment, the media office said:

“Relatedly, we also want to use this medium to warn these rogue Troll and Fog Machine agents to desist from ongoing attempts to smear or entrap Peter Obi and Datti Baba-Ahmed under whatever ploy. We recall at least seven failed fake demarketing and discrediting campaigns against our Principals.

“We are all the more concerned about plans to escalate these desperate acts ahead of the PEPC judgment. Nigerians must not be gullible to believe or accept such deep, fake, and dubious ploys, all in the name of partisan politics. While we continue to appreciate our security agencies’ efforts to secure Nigeria, we implore them to ensure that our Principals are safe and secure in their persons, movement and properties as they go about their public and private endeavours.
