Abuja, March 1, 2023 – The Labour Party says it will contest the outcome of the just concluded presidential election won by Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Datti Baba-Ahmed, the Vice Presidential Candidate of Labour Party, told a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday that his party won the presidential election and would reclaim its mandate soon.

“Our movement is less than eight months old and we won elections in the Federal Republic of Nigeria, where they had an eight-year concurrent government.

“As far as we are concerned, we won this. They refused to upload the results, they refused to refer to the IReV.

“Just for them to defeat us, it took a serving government and constitutional breach to defeat Peter Obi and my humble self. I tell you we are winners,” said Baba-Ahmed.

 “It is our position that the purported result did not meet the minimum criteria of a transparent, free and fair election.

“In addition to the most condemnable attacks, violence, voter intimidation and suppression, the election was conducted in clear violation of agreed and promised INEC rules and guidelines, the Electoral Act 2022 (as amended) and indeed the Nigerian Constitution.

“As evident, the institutions of the state and leaders that were supposed to ensure the sanctity of the election, again, as was in the past, collaborated and colluded to subvert the will of the good people of Nigeria.

“Please be assured of our determination to fight the injustice that has been perpetrated on Nigerians through all legal and peaceful means.

“While painful, we implore you all to remain peaceful and calm as our fight and determination for a new Nigeria are just beginning.

“We equally encourage you all to continue with the campaigns and vote massively for the Labour Party in the forthcoming governorship and state assembly elections on 11 March 2023,” he said. (GBN)
