Ahead of the 2023 presidential elections, the Labour Party (LP) has released the list of its Presidential Campaign Council list consisting of 1,234 members.
The list was disclosed on Wednesday during a press conference in Abuja.
The WITNESS reports that the list was released 14 days after the official commencement of campaigns for the forthcoming 2023 general election.
Addressing a press conference just before the unveiling, Doyin Okupe, Director General of the campaign said there was no doubt that the ascendancy of the Labour Party presidential candidate to a “prime position in the hearts and minds of the Nigerian people, has been fuelled by the patriotic zeal, vibrancy, creativity and shining example, in discipline, character, and decency of the Obidient movement.”
Okupe said because of the capacity of Obi the Obi-dient movement has today rapidly evolved into the biggest voluntary political movement in Nigeria history.
He noted that empirical polls, from the hearts and minds of those who are publicly on the opposing side, placed Peter Obi, clearly and far ahead of the pack, as the right man for the transformational leadership Nigeria needs.
Okupe, therefore, assured Nigerians, that “as we commence the campaign for the 2023 elections, in earnest, our party and our candidates, will remain committed to honest, clean and issue-based engagements, with the Nigerian people, whose mandate we seek, in order to turn around the fortunes of this our great, but badly misgoverned country.”
