Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi on Monday said he is looking forward for a miracle to win next year’s presidency.
He was reacting to a statement by the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar that it would take a miracle for him to win the presidency.
Obi, who spoke on Channels TV’s Politics Today, said since he started his political journey, his achievements and records had all been miracles, adding: “it has all been miraculous.”
Obi said he ran for governor in a party that was less than one year old, and that when he started in 2003 and won the election, they declared somebody else, saying he went to court and that everybody said it was impossible.
He said people said there was no way for him as it had never happened before but that after three years, the court declared him the winner.
“I was sworn in, six months I was impeached alongside Fayose and Dariye, I went to court and again I became the first governor to come back from impeachment. So I was the first governor to win through the court, and first to come back from impeachment.
“And then in 2007, about one year in office, INEC conducted an election and Andy Uba won and was sworn in as governor, I went to court again to seek the interpretation of our constitution that my tenure is four years, everybody said it will never happen but again the Supreme Court declared me the winner which is why you have staggered election in various states today,” he stated.
According to Obi, he could go on an on and tell Nigerians so many things that had happened in his journey which could be termed a miracle.
“I am looking forward to the next miracle next year to complete the miraculous journey of my political life.”
