I have great respect for Tinubu, he is a father to me – Obi

Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the February 25 poll, says he does not harbour any animosity towards the president-elect, Bola Tinubu.

Speaking on AriseNews television on Monday, Obi described Tinubu as a “brother” and a “father”.

He said, “I have no issues with Tinubu. He is somebody I have so much respect for as a brother and regard as a father.

“I am only challenging the process through which INEC declared him as the President-elect. I have no issues with his declaration as the President-elect.”

“We are committed to a new Nigeria. We must do everything that is right.

“We need to build strong democratic institutions that will teach people what their job requires and what government is all about.”

Obi, who was the second runner-up, after the Peoples Democratic Party’s Abubakar Atiku, claimed he won the election by polling majority of “rightful votes.” Simultaneously, Atiku, who polled 6.9m votes is equally asking the Supreme Court to declare him the winner of the presidential poll.
