Peter Obi, said this at the Court of Appeal in Abuja, before the statements of Zainab Adamu Bulkachawa, Chairman of the 2019 Presidential Election Appeal Panel, during the opening of the hearing for the petition in contradiction of the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Obi while speaking at the thanks giving service in celebration of the victory of Senator Stella Oduah representing Anambra North, alongside other lawmakers elected on the platform of PDP in Ogbaru Local Government Area of Anambra State, reassured Nigerians that all hope was not lost as the tribunal was still looking at the petition filed by his party.
In his words, “INEC must provide the server used for the election because the commission knows that a server was used during the election. They must provide it.”
Other law makers celebrated at the ceremony includes Chukwka Onyema, House of Representatives; as well as Noble Igwe Ogbaru 1 and Somto Udeze, Ogbaru 11, for the State House of Assembly.
He said the thanksgiving was important as there is a need for people to be thankful to God for His favor towards them, adding it would have not been possible for PDP to achieve the victory in the area during the election without God.
He stated, “The election has come and gone and we have to thank God Almighty because, without Him, we would not have succeeded. Whenever we have the opportunity, we should show gratitude to God.
“Thanks giving is important and we are here to show our appreciation to God for what He did for us. We also have to show appreciation to all the people who made it possible for us to succeed.”
Peter Obi reminded the law makers that they had enormous challenges to face while he was charging them to consider the interest of the masses first, using public money for the good of the public.
“There is a lot of work to be done in Ogbaru. So many people are hungry and let those who are in power use public money for the public good.
“Our children are not working because there are no jobs. Some are working and suffering. You have to know that it is time to work because you are nearer to the people.” He said.
Senator representing Anambra North, Stella Oduah, also observed that the essence of being in the Senate was to make laws that will improve the lives of the people, as well as bringing good governance to all Nigerians through these laws.
Stella however, promised to continue in the empowerment of youths in the state, as it is an ideal way of promoting human development.
