Speaking during an interview on News Central TV’s ‘Politics HQ’ on Tuesday night, Ononuju, who is the Special Adviser to the Labour Party on Public Affairs, argued that if there is anybody that can overturn INEC’s declaration of Tinubu as the winner of the presidential polls, it would be Peter Obi, because he is going to court with ample experience of election litigations tucked firmly under his belt.

He said; “Peter Obi is a very experienced man. He is using his experiences from Anambra at the Tribunal, where he got out of government, two people who were sworn in. Obi had two governors removed from office on two separate occasions.
He went to the Tribunal and defeated them after they were sworn in. So, where we are today is not new to him. And I believe that if anybody can mount a successful challenge in court, it is Mr. Peter Obi.”
