Court cases not won on public opinion – APC replies Peter Obi

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has contested the assertion made by Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), claiming that the Supreme Court’s judgment regarding the 2023 presidential election was manipulated in favor of President Bola Tinubu.

In a statement released in Abuja, the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mr. Felix Morka, emphasized that legal cases are not determined by public opinion but by the presentation of evidence and adherence to the law.

During his press conference, Obi once again criticized our democratic institutions, particularly the judiciary, for not declaring him the victor. However, Morka clarified that Obi’s complaints were not rooted in his actual victory in the election or the presentation of a compelling legal case, but seemed to stem from his personal entitlement.

Morka went on to say that Obi’s inability to distinguish between his perception of public opinion and reality had been his primary downfall throughout the electoral season. He accused Obi of having a haughty sense of entitlement and criticized his harsh attack on the judiciary.

Morka pointed out that, in the past, Obi had benefited from the Supreme Court’s rulings on electoral matters, but now he seemed to question the judiciary’s integrity when the court’s decision did not align with his expectations. He stressed that it should not always be about Obi, but about the greater good of the country.

Morka emphasized that legal cases are not won based on public opinion but rely on the presentation of evidence and adherence to the law, which Obi had failed to establish.

While welcoming Obi’s decision to engage in opposition politics, Morka encouraged him to do so with maturity and a constructive approach.
