Reno Omokri and Peter Obi
Former presidential aide and activist, Reno Omokri has stated that Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, in the 2023 elections, took the party “from zero to hero”.
He stated this while reacting to the internal crisis rocking the Labour Party over a leadership tussle.
Taking to his Twitter page on Wednesday, Omokri said the factional leaders have to recognise Obi’s sacrifice that transformed the party in less than a year.
He said the former Anambra State Governor’s sacrifice was enough for the LP factional leaders to overlook his lapses.
He wrote, “Labour Party is very unwise to have this infighting. No matter the issue the Apapa-led faction has, they ought to recognize that Peter Obi took Labour from zero to hero in less than a year. If someone can achieve that for you, you can as well forgive his lapses!”
Labour Party gained nationwide support after Peter Obi emerged as its presidential candidate shortly after joining the party from the main opposition, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Since the controversial February 25th presidential election which saw the LP flag bearer, Obi finished third behind Atiku Abubakar of the PDP, and Bola Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress, the party has been plunged into internal crisis.
