Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, has expressed sorrow over the deaths caused by acts of violence during Saturday’s governorship and state house of assembly elections.

Several incidents of violence and voter suppression were reported across the country, particularly in Lagos State, where the party had established a strong base of support ahead of the presidential election on February 25.

Obi prayed for the injured to recover quickly in a tweet sent early Sunday morning.

“With sadness, my heart goes deeply to the Nigerians who lost their lives and those who were maimed for participating in such a simple thing as an election. My prayers and wishes for a quick recovery of the injured,” he said.

“My sincere condolences to the families of those who lost their lives. May God Almighty grant them eternal rest, and grant their families the fortitude to bear their sad irreplaceable loss.

“I pray earnestly that God Almighty will save and help Nigeria out of this precarious situation.”
