“I’m Still Member Of Labour Party”-Peter Obi

The flagbearer of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 presidential election, Peter Obi, has reacted to reports that he plans to dump the party for the Social Democratic Party (SDP) ahead of the 2027 general election.

Recall that there were speculations that the former Governor of Anambra state planned to dump the party for the SDP due to its ongoing crisis.

Also Obi and Governor Alex Otti of Abia state; Senator Victor Umeh and other key figures of of the party were absent on Wednesday, March 27, when Julius Abure was re-elected chairman of the opposition party.

Addressing Nigerians on X Space hosted by Parallel Facts on Friday, March 29, Obi said he is still a member of the Labour Party and will never be involved in anti-party activities.

Obi said:

“I am still a member of the Labour Party, and I don’t and will never do anti-party.”

Another concerned Nigerian during the X (Twitter) space, asked Obi, “If God upholds you till 2027 if we demand, would you yield to our demand for contesting for another election in Nigeria?”

Peter Obi replied: “When that comes, for me. What we are doing now is to insist and try to see that things change even when we are not in office. “Like I keep saying I’m not desperate to be president of Nigeria. I’m desperate to see Nigeria work, and it is not working today.”
