Labour Party Urges IBB, Abdulsalami, Jonathan to Join Obasanjo in Endorsing Obi for President

LP National Chairman asks former Nigerian presidents to join Olusegun Obasanjo in endorsing Peter Obi as best man for president

The National Chairman of Labour Party, LP, Mr Julius Abure has called on former presidents and heads of government to take a cue from former President Olusegun Obasanjo and endorse Mr Peter Obi, the LP candidate for president.


Abure made the call in an exclusive chat with THISDAY shortly after Obasanjo had expressed his support for Obi in a letter addressed to Nigerians and released on the 2023 New Year Day.
The LP national chairman described Obasanjo as “a patriot who wants the best for the country”, saying he should be supported by well-meaning Nigerians who share the same sentiments.


Abure said, “Obasanjo, obviously, has no choice among all the presidential candidates aside Peter Obi. He has always been a progressive, a patriot and a man that wants the best for the country. I want to say without any fear of contradiction that Obasanjo has by this action distinguished himself.
“He is a man that has the country at heart. It is, therefore, not surprising that he has endorsed Obi. We want to implore other leaders, other past presidents, other fathers of the country, like IBB, Abdulsalam Abubakar, Goodluck Jonathan and all past presidents and heads of government in the country to join him.

“I call on them to endorse Obi because as it stands, without sounding immodest, he is the best presidential candidate among other presidential candidates.
“He has age on his side, he is energetic, he has the pedigree, he is competent and is the one that is best suited for the job.”
