Obi spoke in an interview on Channels TV on Thursday.

Obi came third in the February 25 presidential election with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declaring Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the exercise. Since then, there have been talks about a government of national unity.

But the LP candidate has downplayed the move, expressed dissatisfaction with the conduct of the 2023 presidential election, and reiterated that he is challenging the process in court.

“The first thing I want to see is that the process is right. The process through which you achieve anything is far more fundamental than what you do thereafter…Let us go back first, I am challenging the process and the declaration,” he said while fielding questions on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Thursday.

“Until we get it right, then we can talk about a government of national unity. Otherwise, we would go and sit down and say that the people who stopped a train and kidnapped people can call us to come and invite us and discuss peace when they have people in captivity. Let’s do things right. Until things are done rightly, we will be encouraging what we don’t need to encourage.”

Obi had in the same interview session described the 2023 presidential election as the worst in Nigeria’s history.
