Following the presidential election on Saturday, February 25, there has been reports of malpractices and result manipulation in different states.
Amid the controversy, Peter Obi has appealed to his supporters to remain calm and not revolt against the ‘compromised’ election result, but instead persistently demand that the electoral body, INEC, does the right thing.
The former governor of Anambra state stated this in a video shared online by a supporter who bumped into him at Asaba airport, Delta state, today February 28.
He added that Nigerians are currently fighting against an established system that has been there for years, so it was never going to be easy.
“All we are asking for is good governance. Let the government care for the poor people,” he added.
Meanwhile, Nigerians are patiently waiting for the result of the election being collated in Abuja.
