The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi has said the opposition are responsible for a proposed nationwide protest tagged “#ENDINEC”, “#ENDNigeria”, being planned by the Obidents. 

Obi, who reiterated that only through Courts and due process will he reclaim his stolen mandate, said this via a series of tweets on Friday afternoon.

“My attention has been drawn to social media postings suggesting that a nation-wide groundswell “#ENDINEC”, “#ENDNigeria” Protest is being planned by the Obidients.

“We are aware that those postings are being orchestrated by the Opposition.

“My position is clear: Without prejudice to constitutional dictates on freedom of speech and freedom of assembly, I have publicly stated that in the matter of reclaiming our stolen mandate, we shall do so robustly, via the Courts and Due Process.

“Regardless of the misgivings many may have about our Judiciary, we must strive to build strong and resilient institutions, of which the Judiciary is one.

“As a firm believer in the separation of powers between the three arms of government,

“I am conscious that every so often, the Judiciary is called upon to vindicate itself on epochal national public-interest issues.

“The matter presently before the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) is one such litmus test case.

“Therefore, we are committed to pursuing Due Process in an unfettered manner. That is our primary and priority option. -PO.”
