"For me, I have no cause to doubt the courts; it’s we, the politicians that are bent on corrupting every aspect of our national life.”

When asked if he would be surprised if Nigeria moved on and accepted the situation on the ground, Obi said he would be surprised that Nigerians would be willing to continue corruption and criminality.

He further reiterated that INEC's decision to declare another candidate winner was a false declaration, and he will continue to challenge the process.

As reported by Guardian, Obi said:

“My trust in INEC has evaporated with what they did on February 25, setting out a rule for the election and abandoning it in the middle of the game.”
