Rivers Labour Party Chairman endorses PDP guber candidate

Labour Party wins

On Tuesday, Mr. Dienye Pepple, the chairman of the Labour Party in Rivers, announced that his organisation had decided to support the PDP’s candidate for governor in the state.

Pepple told journalists in Port Harcourt that the party supported a credible candidate regardless of their state’s political affiliation.

He contends that the ideal candidate must be energetic, young, and come from a senatorial district without a governor.

“The LP in Rivers will be voting a riverine candidate in the person of Sir Siminlalayl Joseph Fubara of the PDP from the South East Senatorial district of the state during the upcoming gubernatorial polls”.

“The Labour Party and her members are defenders and ambassadors of the values that have set her and the Obidient Movement apart from all other parties”.

According to Pepple, the Labour Party governorship candidate Beatrice Itubo, stepped down and adopted the All Progressive Congress candidate in the state.

“The party in the past few days in the state was hit by a major shock of an unknown person surfacing and claiming to be our gubernatorial candidate”.

“This followed the news making rounds on social media that the gubernatorial candidate of the party,Mrs Beatrice Itubo, has stepped down and adopted the APC candidate.

”In order for us not to remain in the dark, the party, in line with the 23 LGAs chairmen, has decided to support a credible candidate irrespective of the party affiliation.

“Our Labour Party and its candidate till date-Mr Peter Obi, put up a robust and most impressive representation of ‘people power’ not seen in recent Nigerian history,” Pepple said.

Pepple urged all LP members, supporters and our Obideint team in Rivers to come out in their numbers on Saturday, March 11, 2023 to vote Fubara from the South East Senatorial District of Rivers for governor.

He also urged them to vote all other Labour Party Candidates for the State House of Assembly in their various constituencies.

Meanwhile, Mr Mike Usolor, Head, Voters Education and Publicity, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Rivers, told journalists that the LP governorship candidate for Rivers remained the same candidate on INEC list. (NAN)
