Peter Obi remains Labour Party’s presidential candidate says National Secretary 


The leadership of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), has dismissed report of a factional Labour Party(LP), insisting there was only one LP and Dr Peter Obi, as its presidential candidate for the 2023 presidential election.

The National Secretary, Umar Ibrahim also stated that there’s no faction in the party. The scribe spoke on Friday in a chat with newsman in Kaduna, NAN, reports.

The News Agency of Nigeria reported that Commissioner for Information of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Festus Okoye, had declared Peter Obi the winner of the Labour Party presidential primary, which was held on May 30 in Asaba, Delta State.

Ibrahim said that there was no division in the party, adding, “Former Anambra State Governor Peter Obi is the authentic presidential candidate of the party, duly elected at a convention organised by the leadership of Mr Julius Abure as National Chairman, supervised and recognised by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

“There is no faction in LP, but in the imagination of those who are foot soldiers of enemies of Nigeria and Nigerians.

“The leadership and members of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) have recognised and endorsed the candidacy of Obi,” he said. 

The National Secretary stated that the LP is accepted by the majority of Nigerians who craved credible political leadership and saw it as the only credible alternative to give Nigerians the president they desperately needed to salvage Nigeria. He, then, urged Nigerians, especially the citizens in the South East, not to be distracted. “Instead, you should mobilise support for Mr Peter Obi, utilise the LP in his quest to liberate Nigeria from the shackles of godfatherism.”
