LP chairman, Julius Abure, who spoke in commemoration of the Democracy Day on Monday, said that Obi’s vice-presidential candidate would be widely accepted, with powerful credentials, and most likely going to come from the Northern region.

Abure noted that the principle of social-religious inclusion and the diversity of the Nigerian workforce and membership of the Labour Party would not be compromised in its choice.

He said, “While I want to say that it may be too premature for me to speak, and the constitution also gives the presidential candidate the right to nominate his vice presidential candidate, I feel it would be more proper for the presidential candidate to answer.

“However, I want to assure you that as a party that is reasonable; as a party that believes in equity and justice; as a party that believes in social justice and equal opportunity for all, a vice-presidential candidate that is widely accepted, with powerful credentials, is most likely going to come from the Northern region, there is no doubt about that.”

KanyiDaily recalls that Tinubu’s camp has narrowed down on Kashim Shettima, while Atiku’s backers are concluding talks on Ifeanyi Okowa for the position of the vice president.
