Following the outcome of the 2023 presidential polls in Nigeria, Labour Party Presidential Committee Chairman, Special Duties, Dr. Emeka Mandela has advised Nigerian youths not to waiver in their support for the party, assuring that the mandate they freely gave to its Presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi would be reclaimed.

Mandela expressed satisfaction that once in the history of the nation, citizens voted massively for a presidential candidate of their choice but regretted that their ultimate will was thwarted by enemies of democracy.

He explained that the February 25 polls was a pointer that Nigerians are desperately in need of a paradigm shift from the old system and that a sovereign people can choose its leaders to repair a deeply damaged country like Nigeria.

The Labour Party Chieftain noted that the Nigerians believe that only a man like Peter Obi can frontally and effectively tackle the challenges confronting the nation headlong, hence the massive vote he garnered at the election but hugely manipulated by the electoral empire.

He charged Nigerian youths to walk with their shoulders high, remain optimistic that their votes will surely count no matter how long it takes and also exercise their franchise in the forthcoming governorship and state assembly elections.

“For an election to be credible, it must enjoy popular participation”, Mandela added while equally, admonishing security agencies to raise their alert levels and ensure they act within their constitutional roles during and after the March 11 polls.

Whilst reassuring that Peter Obi would reclaim his mandate, he enjoined citizens to remain hopeful that the nation would restore her lost glory in terms of human capital, infrastructural, economic and technological development.
