"Throughout history, positive changes come only with sacrifices, perseverance, resilience and fluctuating fortunes.
"Right from the onset of our journey, I told you all that the journey upon which we were about to embark was not a short sprint, but a long and tough marathon. It was always going to be difficult, painful and excruciating."
Peter Obi hails resilient spirit of Obidients
Obi charged Obidients not to succumb to the dictates of forces who will do anything at all costs to resist positive change and transformation.
He said he was inspired by the ability of the Obidients to resist the odds placed in their way.
"In such a short space of time, we have persevered to get to the point where we cannot be ignored any longer. Therefore, I urge you to abide and never think of giving up."
He assured his supporters that the tribunal's outcome has recharged his zeal and commitment to build a new Nigeria.
The LP presidential bannerman said:
"I assure you that we shall persist with even greater determination and zeal until we get to our destination. Nigeria must belong to all Nigerians and not to a select few."
