NLC endorses Peter Obi

The leadership of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) has endorsed Peter Obi as Labour Party, LP presidential flag-bearer for the 2023 general election.

Labour Party National Secretary, Umar Ibrahim, made the declaration while addressing reporters on Friday in Kaduna.

“There is no faction in LP, but in the imagination of those who are foot soldiers of enemies of Nigeria and Nigerians,” said Mr Ibrahim. “The leadership and members of the Nigerian Labor Congress (NLC) have recognised and endorsed the candidacy of Obi.”

According to Ibrahim, “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).”

Ibrahim asserted that the LP had become the new bride for 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,” he said.
