I Have Not Left Labour Party – Obi

Leadership 2024/4/17

Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 presidential election, Mr Peter Obi,  has declared that he has not left the party. 

There were reports of Obi parting ways with the Labour Party, but he said his ties with the party are still intact, adding that such insinuations were from mischief makers.

The Peter Obi Media Reach (POMR) through the chief spokesman of the defunct Obi-Datti campaign council, Dr Yunusa Tanko, said they were out to outrightly dismiss trending fake and fallacious news stories suggesting that Obi was leaving the party.

He said: “This is not true and it did not originate from Obi or the Obidient Movement but from mischief makers bent on sowing the seed of discord in the party,” Tanko said, adding that the rising misdemeanors on the party did not start today as they set out to destroy and disorganise the party all to get at Obi and derail the inevitable journey of rescuing Nigeria.

“Presently our principal is preoccupied with making Nigeria work not on partisan politics which ended on October 26, 2023, when the Supreme Court of the land took their final decision on the general elections. 

“Those bent on creating a crisis in the Labour Party are clearly enemies of democracy wishing for the failed status quo to remain. Obi’s focus at the moment is on creating an environment where democracy is to be practiced according to the defined tenets not the rascality  and all forms of impunity prevalent in the country today,” Tanko said while assuring Nigerians, particularly the Obidient family that Obi ways with Labour is unshaken and intact and that the struggle to rescue Nigeria from the criminal gangs holding it down will not stop until it’s achieved through the will of the Nigerian people.”
