Peter Obi Labour Party
KanyiDaily recalls that Peter Obi, who is seeking to contest the 2023 presidency, had recently dumped the PDP ahead of the party’s primary election.
In his resignation letter dated May 24, 2022, Obi said the recent developments within the PDP make it practically impossible to continue participating and making such constructive contributions.
Taking to his Twitter page on Friday, May 27, the presidential aspirant announced that he has joined the Labour Party, thanking the youths for the encouragement.
Obi wrote, “I thank all Nigerians, especially our youths who have joined me in the mission of taking back and reuniting Nigeria. This project is yours and for the future of your children. I am just a facilitator.
“Since I resigned from the PDP because of issues that are at variance with my persona and principles, I have consulted widely with various parties and personalities to ensure we do not complicate the route to our desired destination.
“For me, the process of achieving our goal is as fundamental as what one will do thereafter.
“Therefore, I have chosen a route that I consider to be in line with our aspirations and my mantra of taking the country from consumption to production; and that is the Labour Party which is synonymous with the people, workers, development, production, securing and uniting Nigerians as one family.
“I invite all Nigerians to join me in taking back our country. Be assured that I’ll never let you down.”
I thank all Nigerians, especially our youths who have joined me in the mission of taking back and reuniting Nigeria.
