Let’s focus on making Nigeria work – Obi pleads as he endorse newly elected NWC | Read More 


The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 General Election, Mr. Peter Obi, on Tuesday joined crowd of Party Faithful in the Federal Capital Territory to pay solidarity visit to the party leadership at the National Headquarters today.


The party’s National Leader who also endorsed the newly elected National Working Committee of Labour Party led by Barrister Julius Abure urged aggrieved Party members to put the survival of Nigerians and Nigeria first above all other interests.


Obi said he was at the national secretariat for a visit to the National Chairman and would continue to strive to bring all warring parties over the crisis in the Party to become united.


He noted that some politicians were quick to talk about elections as soon as one electoral cycle ends, forgetting the critical aspect which is the welfare and security of citizens.


“For now let us talk about how we are going to survive till then (2027), because we politicians always focus on the next election and not about human beings. That is for me; when they survive to the next election, we can talk about the election.


Let us focus on Nigeria, and see that Nigeria works, if Nigeria is working Labour party will work. If Nigeria fails, Labour party fails.”


In his address to members of the party who thronged the party secretariat in solidarity visit, the National Chairman of the Party, Barr. Julius Abure said the National Working Committee was appreciative of the visit of the party members and the presidential candidate.


He said it was high time the varying groups of dissent voices over the Nnewi Convention to come together and set all their personal interest aside and work for a Party that would make a good show in the next election season.


“I want to say this very clear, the National Convention has come and gone, all those who are still angry with us over the Nnewi Convention, we want to appeal to them that they should all come together to work with us to build the Party for a new Nigeria that has a vision.


“I believe very strongly that personal interest should be put aside and pursue a new Nigeria that will work for all,” Abure stated.
