After being observed at Asaba Airport on February 28—a few days after the presidential election on Saturday—Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party, issued a call for calm.
Peter Obi urged for calm after reports of rampant rigging and emphasized that Nigeria is a growing country in his call.
The Labour Party candidate for president also claimed that party members have low expectations of people in authority because of their efforts to address a problem that has plagued the nation for years.
Obi advised his fans to maintain their composure and be persistent in calling attention to everything that went wrong. Added him:
“We will remain calm, we will remain persistent and consistent. We will remain calm. That is the only way we can do. Here is a country where all we are saying is good governance, let the government care for the poor people. That is all we are asking for.”
