Barely 24 hours after he clinched the factional presidential ticket of the Labour Party, Ezenwafor has announced his decision to step down for Peter Obi.

“I regret any inconvenience my withdrawal might cost our great Party. I thank the leadership of our great Party for giving me the opportunity to serve Nigeria”.

Checks on INEC’s official website showed that Julius Abure and Umar Farouk were recognised as the Labour Party’s national chairman and secretary; Akingbade Oyelakin as the national legal adviser.

KanyiDaily recalls that Peter Obi was elected as presidential candidate of the Labour Party at a primary organised by the Julius Abure-led faction of the party in Delta State.
