Amobi Ogah, a member of the House of Representatives, has urged the presidential candidate of his party, Peter Obi, and his counterpart in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, to support President Bola Tinubu.
While speaking to reporters, the lawmaker who was elected on the platform of the Labour Party (LP), said that God has given the mandate to Tinubu, adding that his opponents should display sportsmanship and put the interest of the country above anything else.
Recall that the lawmaker representing Isuikwuato/Umunneochi Federal Constituency of Abia State made headlines barely two weeks ago after he expressed his admiration for Tinubu by saying that he never knew he was so intelligent.
In the video posted by Channels TV, he stood his ground and made it clear that the time for politics is over. He called on the presidential candidates of the opposition parties to respect who God has given the mandate to represent the people.
“Once you are in politics, don’t think that if you don’t win today, you will not win again. Once someone has won the election, you must give the person support. Just like what I said last week that trended all over the world, elections have come and gone and now is about governance. Whoever God has given the mandate to represent the people, you must respect it. Whoever is in that seat, you must support the person until the court or God says otherwise.”
