The Labour Party (LP) has refuted claims that its supporters threatened judges reviewing the petition of Peter Obi against the election results favouring Bola Tinubu.
According to National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has concocted the story to tarnish the LP’s image and stir unrest.
He described a circulating photo as a ploy “to distract from APC’s open intimidating remarks.”
LP highlighted remarks by Tinubu’s legal team, which suggested potential chaos if Tinubu’s election was overturned.
The party firmly believes the judges “will fulfil their statutory responsibilities based on the law and weight of evidence.”
The statement reads, “As such LP did not need any threat, to secure the delivery of substantive justice.
“It is increasingly evident that the ruling party is afraid of its shadow and the truth, and is as busy fabricating and labelling the Labour Party to curry imaginary favour.
“The discerning public should disregard this dubious label of LP because they know who is panicking and trying to create anarchy in the land to remain in power at all costs.
“We, therefore wish to reiterate our belief in the sanctity of our jurisprudence and expect that justice will be served based on nothing short of what the constitution and extant law says and not via the troll mechanism or devious acts of the ruling party that is desperate to cling to power without the people’s mandate.”
