The Labor Party says its mission to take back Nigeria is to abide by the rule of law and non-violence of any kind.
The party said the clarification was needed to set the record straight on allegations of plans to arrest supporters of presidential candidate Peter Obi on charges of inciting violence.
This was contained in a statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, on Monday in Abuja.
He said he was aware of various trends in print and video showing the arrest of the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
“The stories are related to some persons who are praying for Obi’s arrest.
“Normally, such stories should not attract our attention. However, we are worried when fake stories fly around us including video clips from pre-election and campaign speeches where Obi spoke to Nigerian youths about the importance of returning to our country.
“Creating videos, like the latest record and trying to appear fresh, is wrong, if not criminal.
“This is a deception, simple and vaguely aimed at false accusations and entrapment. Here, we must reaffirm Obi’s commitment and commitment to the rule of law and the propagation of non-violent politics.
“When INEC announced the results of the election at 4 o’clock on March 1, 2023, Obi’s supporters across the country and in the diaspora urged him to allow mass protests, but he refused saying that he would take back Nigeria. peaceful process, not violence.
“Obi’s delay in organizing the violence is part of the author’s imagination and a bad name for hanging.” Obi is not a violent person, but he believes that justice must be served no matter how long it takes.
“As a man of faith, the former governor of Anambra State believes that the new Nigeria will be filled with great potential and he does not need to take his supporters to the streets to achieve this goal.
“The Labor Party; therefore, he wants to advise prophets and sorcerers whether real or imagined, stay away from Obi’s prophecies because faith is in Nigeria and God and not in imaginary sorcerers.”
