According to Punch, Umar Farouk, the party’s national secretary, and Peter Obi, the LP’s presidential candidate, won the 2023 presidential election.
On February 25, 2023, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) conducted the election.
Recall that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential candidate, was declared the winner of the 2023 presidential election by INEC after receiving a total of 8,794,726 votes.
He defeated Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate, who received 6,984,520 votes, and Peter Obi, the Labor Party (LP) candidate, who received 6,101,533.
However, Umar Farouk, in an interview with the Punch report, claimed that Obi won the presidential election because of her relationship with them and her track record.
According to Umar Farouk, INEC provided Nigerian citizens with additional services as a result of their desire to carry out their purser’s agenda. Umar Farouk pointed out that the Labor Party has the right to challenge the election results.
