Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, LP, and head of OBIdient movement, Mr Peter Obi has assured Nigerians that his party will build an egalitarian, free and prosperous Nigeria if elected in 2023.
The former Governor of Anambra State, Obi, made the promise on Friday in Abakaliki, while speaking at an event organised in his honour by the Ebonyi chapter of the Civil Society Action Group, CSAG.
Obi who was represented by Senator Azu Agboti, his Presidential Campaign Coordinator in Ebonyi, urged the people not to lose hope in the Nigerian project saying, ‘there is light at the end of the tunnel.”
IsL source reports that the Senator guaranteed that the Labour Party’s campaign would be issue-based and anchored on addressing social, economic and security issues affecting the people, especially the ordinary Nigerians.
The LP candidate who was endorsed and adopted by the group as their preferred presidential candidate in the 2023 election, thanked the group for endorsing him and other candidates of his party in the state.
“Our campaigns will be issue-based, x-raying our programmes and the agenda we have to further launch Nigeria into the path of progress; prosperity and egalitarianism,” Obi said.
Mr. Peter Obi through his representative at the event declared support for Chief Edward Nkwegu, the LP governorship candidate in Ebonyi, saying the endorsement was based on the candidate’s character, competence, capacity and antecedents in human management and wealth creation as an industrialist.
