He compared Obi’s decision to challenge the February 25th presidential elections to that of the 1993 election victory of MKO Abiola which was annulled by Babangida.

Onanuga tweeted, “Peter Obi of Labour Party seeks the annulment of the election of President-elect Bola Tinubu just like the military annulled MKO Abiola’s election of 12 June 1993.”

He noted that Tinubu and his supporters are ready to defend his election victory, adding that “Team Tinubu will certainly meet you (Obi) in court.”

Recall that earlier on Tuesday, Obi filed a petition at the tribunal in Abuja.

Obi and the Labour Party (LP) are challenging the credibility of Tinubu’s victory as the winner of the February 25, 2023, presidential election.

The Labour Party and its presidential flag bearer are praying for the tribunal to enforce that Tinubu was not duly elected by a majority of votes cast during the election. They want an order demanding that INEC retrieves the certificate of return issued to Tinubu and issue a fresh one to Obi.
