Victor Umeh Says APC, PDP Members Will Vote Peter Obi

Umeh, a former national chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), stated this on Wednesday during an interview on Channels Television’s breakfast show, Sunrise Daily.

According to him, the APC and PDP are now panicky as a result of the growing popularity of the labour party all over the country.

He said, “The issue is not about where you belong now. I know that there are people in PDP who will vote for Labour Party. I know that there are people in APC who will vote for Labour Party. What is important is the task of rescuing Nigeria and people don’t believe that this thing can work outside this platform.”

Umeh also reacted to the statement credited to the Nigeria Labour Party (NLC) president, Ayuba Wabba that the union and its affiliates will mobilise 12 million votes for Obi in next year’s presidential election.

The LP senatorial candidate in Anambra State, said the NLC has the capacity to mobilise votes for Obi because “it is a structured organisation”, arguing that unionists are also suffering.

He also asserted that the people are with the party.

“The people are with the (Labour) Party. Look at things going on in Nigeria across the states of the Federation. If you say that the Labour Party is weak in some areas, they spring up a surprise…What is the power of the Labour Party now are the people,” he said.

He also dismissed claims that the LP lacks structures, adding that the party has continued to overwhelm its opponents.

“People from the other parties are now panicky. Initially, they were making loose statements that the party is nothing. Today, Labour Party is their nightmare. Why has it happened? Is Labour Party sharing money? Labour Party is not sharing money,” the LP senatorial candidate said.

Umeh also threw light on Obi’s strategies on winning the hearts of northerners, “He (Obi) has been consulting. Mr Peter Obi is one of the most-travelled presidential candidates consulting all zones in the country, meeting people.”

In other news, Kanyi Daily had reported Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi said Peter Obi will get substantial votes in the South-East but the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Tinubu will win the polls.
