Ogun LP Resolves Crisis

The Labour Party (LP) chapter in Ogun State announced on Thursday that it has resolved the crisis that had recently engulfed the party in the state, and that it will contest all political offices in the state during the upcoming general elections.

The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Abayomi Arabambi, told reporters in Abeokuta, Ogun State’s capital, after a stakeholders’ meeting that none of the party’s candidates in the state would step down for candidates or candidates of any other political party in the state.

The party announced that its candidates would run for 40 positions in the upcoming elections, including the presidency, three senatorial districts, nine House of Representatives, and 26 House of Representatives.

He said:“Both the PDP and APC are pained because Baba Obasanjo endorsed Obi for president. They said he has no electoral value and that his action is meaningless. Why do they all visit him at different times?

“If his endorsement does not matter, why are they reacting to it? They will all be shocked when the election result is released.

“If you look at the figures released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the figures of those who registered after the emergence of Peter Obi, shored up because Obi has renewed hope for Nigerians. Obasanjo must have seen something unique about Peter Obi and his endorsement was not for fun.”
