Emulate Weah, congratulate Tinubu, LP faction tells Aiku, Obi

The Lamidi Apapa-led faction of Labour Party has called on its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, and his counterpart in the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, to borrow a leaf from the Liberian election by congratulating President Bola Tinubu.


Weah, a former World Footballer of the Year award recipient, had conceded defeat after the country’s electoral umpire announced Boakai as the winner with 50.9 percent of the vote with Weah garnering 49.1 per cent.

Reacting via a statement issued in Abuja on Saturday, spokesman foe the LP faction, Abayomi Arabambi, disclosed that both Weah and Boakai have proven that election is neither a do or die affair nor  a war that must be won at all cost.

While arguing that former President Goodluck Jonathan also toed the same line, Arabambi urged Ariku and Obi to join Tinubu in rebuilding the country.

He said, “The time is ripe for former Vice-President and PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and former Governor of Anambra State and presidential candidate of LP, Mr. Peter Obi to congratulate  President Bola Tinubu after they had explored all the opportunities availed by the Constitution and the Electoral Act.
