Stop The Threats Against Judges From Obidients Supporters – Open Letter to Peter Obi

Since the beginning of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, Where the presidential candidate of the Labour Party Mr. Peter Obi went to the tribunal to challenge his “Stolen Mandate”.

Peter Obi’s supporters, popularly known as the Obidient movement, have taken it to another level, at what may seem to look like a threat, to the judges of the PEPT. The Supporters of Peter Obi have been doing so via the macro blogging site, “TWITTER”.

According to one of Obi’s Supporters @McPilot7, he wrote, Dear our PEPT judges, we heard that on judgement day DSS and police will be distributed around the court. Lol!

The question is… we hope after passing the wrong judgment the DSS and the police will be following you everywhere for protection?

Another supporter @MO_Shaibu_ wrote, “PEPT Justice Tsummani is paid with “our” money to render services in our courts, therefore no single excuse for poor judgement will be tolerated. Not even if Tinubu and INEC are holding his family hostage or grabbing him by the balls.

Olanipkekun and his fellow miracle center lawyers cannot be allowed to use technicalities, threats, and LIES to have their way around the issue in court.
We will not allow it, Sir.
We are not joking here, Sir. Not even for one bit 😡🤬😡

Listen, SIR!, if you know what is good for you and your entire generation, rule by our constitution and laws. Nothing else!!!

There should be limits to how much we can tolerate in this country na.

One old looking almost expired drug dealer and criminal cannot hold over 200 million of us to hostage na.
What do these people take us for!!!!!!”


A concerned Nigerian has taken to his Twitter handle, @TheoAbuAgada to issue an open letter to Mr Peter Obi, to caution his supporters.

Good Afternoon your Excellency, Mr. Peter Obi, the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party. I am writing to you today with great concern and urgency regarding recent reports of threats made by your supporters toward the esteemed judges of the Presidential Election Petition Court. As a responsible and respected leader, I kindly request you take immediate action and caution your supporters against such actions.

Dear Mr. Peter, it is important to emphasize that a democratic society thrives on the principles of freedom, fairness, and respect for the rule of law. The judiciary, as an independent institution, plays a crucial role in upholding these principles and ensuring justice for all. Threats or intimidation tactics against judges undermine the integrity of our judicial system and erode public trust in the democratic process.

Your influence as a prominent figure in Nigerian politics carries great weight. It is therefore incumbent upon you to unequivocally condemn any form of threats or intimidation directed toward the judges presiding over the Presidential Election Petition Court. By doing so, you will not only demonstrate your commitment to upholding the rule of law but also reinforce the inclusive and peaceful nature of our democratic processes.

I implore you to use your platform and voice to promote a culture of respect, tolerance, and adherence to the judicial process. Encourage your supporters and followers to express their grievances through lawful means, such as peaceful protests, engaging in constructive dialogue, or pursuing legal avenues available to them. By urging them to embrace peaceful and lawful methods, you will help preserve the sanctity of our democratic institutions and foster an environment conducive to national progress.

Moreover, it is vital to remember that the outcome of any legal process must be respected, regardless of personal or political affiliations. While it is natural for individuals to feel passionate about their preferred candidates or causes, it is essential to maintain decorum and respect for the judicial process. This will not only set a positive example for your supporters but also contribute to the overall well-being of our democracy.

In conclusion sir, I respectfully urge you to take immediate action to caution your supporters and unequivocally condemn any threats or intimidation directed towards the judges of the Presidential Election Petition Court. Your leadership in this matter will serve as a strong message against such behavior and reinforce the importance of upholding the rule of law in our society.

Thank you for your attention to this matter. I trust in your commitment to fostering a peaceful and inclusive political environment in Nigeria, and I hope to see your swift response to address this critical issue.

Yours Sincerely,

Agada Abuh Theophilus
