A July 18 post on Facebook claims that the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) had declared Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), the winner of the 2023 election.
The poster claimed the court took the decision because Obi met the 25% threshold in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The election tribunal has not declared Peter Obi the winner of the 2023 presidential election in Nigeria.
The video accompanying the post appears to show the owner of the Facebook page attributing the claim to “Arise TV news”.
The clip has garnered over one million views and has been shared 10,000+ times. The same claim was reposted on Facebook here and here.
But a fact-checking platform, Africa Check, scrutinised the claim and found it to be false. Africa Check said the claim is untrue because no credible media outfit published or broadcast the ‘news’.
In a piece of related news, Legit.ng reported that Obi discredited the written address filed by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu following the outcome of the February presidential elections.
The petitioners, in their final written address filed by Obi’s lead counsel, Livy Uzoukwu (SAN), said there will only be anarchy if the rule of law is truncated.
Legit.ng also reported that Prophet Elijah Bamidele Ilukholor of the Christ House of Prayer and Deliverance Ministry said Obi would not be Nigeria’s president.
Speaking to his congregation in a video posted on his church’s official page on Sunday, July 23, Prophet Bamidele said God showed him that Bola Ahmed Tinubu would remain the country’s president.
