Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of Labour Party in the 2023 election has revealed why he visited the party’s secretariat on Tuesday.
Speaking through the Chief Spokesperson of Obi-Datti Campaign Organisation, Yunusa Tanko, Obi said he visited Labour Party headquarters on Tuesday as part of his move to reconcile different interests within the party and not to endorse anybody.
Obi’s visit to the party was followed by a statement by the party saying that its former presidential candidate in the 2023 election endorsed Julius Abure-led national working committee.
But in a statement on Wednesday, Tanko said that Obi’s visit was occasioned by his quest to resolve the misunderstanding between the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), the Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the party leadership.
“Obi’s visit to Labour Party yesterday was not to endorse anybody, but occassioned by his reconcilliatory move. Julius Abure in his speech stated clearly how Obi came to the office, and Obi in his speech clarified same, while preaching peace, and his mantra *Pursuit of better Nigeria for the poor*
“Leadership of NLC/TUC Political Arm Commorades Titus Amba and Chris Uyot who were informed of Obi travelling out today, hence will honour thier invitation, also met with him, and extensively discussed same peace move with them.
“Obi had repeatedly maintained that his interest was to carry everybody along into one strong family, and not to support one against the other.
“In all his meetings with all stakeholders, he has always maintained peace, and urge not to lose purpose which is to free Nigeria suffering and pain.
“The LP standards bearer plans to continue meeting with critical stakeholders, and groups to achieve all-inclusive political family with a common dream of rescuing Nigeria,” the statement read.
