TRIBUNAL JUDGEMENT: DON’T BE DISCOURAGED, ABURE ADMONISHES SUPPORTERS
* WE ARE A STEP TOWARDS RECOVERING NIGERIA
NATIONAL CHAIRMAN OF THE LABOUR PARTY, BARRISTER JULIUS ABURE ADDRESSES PARTY MEMBERS, OBIDIENT FAMILY AND NIGERIANS AFTER THE PEPC JUDGEMENT.
Let me start first by thanking all our supporters, Labour Party members and the Obidient members for their immense support towards the party.
Out of their support for the party, we have in our kitty today a governor, 35 members of the House of Representatives, 8 distinguished Senators and several House of Assembly members.
Our participation in the 2023 general election, no doubt has changed the political landscape in the country. All these achievements by the Labour Party could not have been possible if not for the support of members of the public, the Obidient family and well meaning and right thinking Nigerians who genuinely wanted change for the country.
I am indeed very appreciative of their efforts, their financial contributions and moral supports and how they came out to vote for the party in the presidential election which we believe we won irrespective of whatever the tribunal has said.
I want to admonish and appeal to our people, we should not be daunted at all. Nelson Mandela in his book, ‘A Long Walk To Freedom’ said every step we take leads us to our freedom. Today in the words of Mandela, every step we have taken and would take leads us to our freedom, leads us to our taking back our country, and it leads us to our taking back Nigeria.
Even the judgement is also a step towards reclaiming our country. I am therefore admonishing all our supporters not to be discouraged at all. We are preparing our papers and we are definitely moving from here to the Supreme Court. We have protested and they said don’t protest, ‘go to Court’ and we are in court. Today all ayes are on the judiciary.
For us as a party, we are going to sustain this momentum and we are also calling on all our supporters to sustain this momentum to take over the country and to reposition it for greatness. It is not an easy task but I am happy that we have started, we have put our hands on the plough and we will definitely not look back.
I am therefore admonishing our supporters to remain committed to the movement and remain committed to Nigeria. Nigeria belongs to all of us and it must definitely work.
Thank you and God bless you.
