Why I’m Personally Heading To Appeal Court – Peter Obi

The Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi on Wednesday disclosed why he would be heading to the Court of Appeal.

Obi came third behind Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the winner, Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
