Peter Obi Denies Dumping Amid Labour Party Crisis

The 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has debunked rumors, spreading viral on social media that he has left the party.

The former Anambra governor, alleged that unfortunate news came from certain quarters, described them as political mischief makers.

However, Obi, in a statement signed by his media aide, Michael Jude Nwolisa, on Friday, dismissed the trending fallacious news story.

The statement reads: “This is not true and it did not originate from Obi or the Obidient Movement but from mischief makers bent on sowing the seed of discord in the party.

“These rising misdemeanors on the party did not start today as they set out to destroy and disorganize the party all to get at Obi and derail the inevitable journey of rescuing Nigeria.

“Presently our principal is preoccupied with making Nigeria work not on partisan politics which ended on October 26, 2023, when the Supreme Court of the land took their final decision on the general elections.

“Those bent on creating a crisis in the Labour Party are clearly enemies of democracy wishing for the failed status quo to remain.

“OBI’s focus at the moment is on creating an environment where democracy is to be practiced according to the defined tenets not the rascality and all forms of impunity prevalent in the country today

“Peter Obi, therefore, would like to assure Nigerians, particularly the Obidient family that his way with Labour is unshaken and intact and that the struggle to rescue Nigeria from the criminal gangs holding it down will not stop until it’s achieved through the will of the Nigerian people.”
