The Labour Party, LP, on Wednesday inaugurated a 750-man Presidential Committee to drive the Peter Obi/Yusuf Datti presidential Campaign in Anambra.
Chief Joemartins Uzodike, former Commissioner for Information in the state, is to serve as the Director-General, with Prof. Stella Okunna, Azuka Enemuo and about 15 ex-commissioners named as members.
Performing the inauguration in Awka, Chief Damian Okeke-Ogene, South-East Zonal Co-ordinator of the Obi-Datti presidential Campaign Committee, charged members of the committee to ensure that Peter Obi wins with wide margin in the state.
According to IsL source, Nation Newspaper, Okeke-Ogene, who doubles as the vice president of Ohaneze Ndigbo, said Nigerians from diverse socio-political standing are supporting Obi-Datti presidential bid.
“Ohaneze Ndigbo has formerly endorsed the Obi-Datti presidential project for 2023 election, and other sister socio-cultural organisations like Afanifere are leading the campaign,” he said.
He said the support being enjoyed by Obi is not an Igbo affair, but due to quality of the candidate presented by LP.
