If they come at us through land, sea or air, we respond to them same way — Peter Obi to Obidients



I Am Sad Nigerians Have Not Been Evacuated From Sudan -- Peter Obi

Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, has reiterated his agitation towards reclaiming his “stolen mandate.”

Obi made this pledge on Tuesday, via a lengthy tweet on his Twitter handle while imploring OBIDIENTS that “if they come at us through land, air and sea, we will respond to them through land, air and sea.”

Peter Obi is contesting the electoral system that resulted in Ahmed Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for president at the time, being declared the winner of the highly contentious February 25 presidential election.

He also revealed all the strategies employed by the ruling party, the APC, to divert attention from him and paint Yusuf Ahmed-Datti, his running mate, as a nuisance who is capable of committing a treasonable action.

Peter Obi added that most of what he was going through wasn’t unexpected because those forces that stood to gain from the current situation were expected to fight back.

The former governor of Anambra State implored his numerous supporters to remain concentrated on the legal proceedings, assuring them that doing so would give them a chance to use him to restore their mandate.


He pledged that if elected president, he would restore the nation’s wealth, beginning in the north.

His tweet reads, “I encourage Nigerians to remain calm and steadfast in the journey to reclaiming their mandate of a New Nigeria. I will never give up on this journey until victory is achieved.

“I never expected the journey to a New Nigeria to be an easy one. The forces, who had over the years, lived off the old order, are bound to fight back, as is being experienced now.

“If they come at us through land, air and sea, we will respond to them through land, air and sea but, we will remain law abiding and will never give up on the nation. We are on the right path and we will remain committed to the course.

“I reiterate my commitment to building a Nigeria that will be beneficial to every Nigerian. The struggle to reclaim this mandate is not about me as a person but, about millions of Nigerians who placed their trust in me through their votes.


“The millions of Nigerians who voted for me did not just cast their votes but, they invested their hopes in me and they deserve justice. So, we must stay the course.

“Beyond regaining our mandate, I am committed to lifting people out of poverty and I remain committed to transforming Nigeria starting from the North to every part of the nation.

“There may be more mud slinging from those who are against the emergence of the New Nigeria but, I would never be deterred by the obstacles along the way to victory. I have always lived my life in the most law abiding manner.

“Sometimes as humans, we make mistakes but, I will never knowingly break any law. I am therefore not afraid of the lies and propaganda against my person. They are part of the journey to a New Nigeria. -PO”
