The Labour Party says it will review its presidential campaign council list in response to concerns raised by Nigerians over the list released on Wednesday.
Many Nigerians had criticised the choice certain individuals on the list, particularly the selection of people of Southeast origin as coordinators for Sokoto and Lagos states, as well the inclusion of Major General John Enenche (retd.), who described the Lekki shooting incident as being “photoshopped” and “cropped.”
Enenche made the list of the 1,234 members of the presidential campaign council of the Labour Party standard bearer, Peter Obi.
Dr Yunusa Tanko, head of the campaign council media team disclosed the party’s decision to review the list in a tweet on Thursday.
He said, “The Campaign Council in synergy with the Labour Party have noted all the issues raised on Obi-Datti Campaign Council list released on the 12th October, 2022. We assure you we will do the needful and an updated list will be released soon.”
