He stated that the party would ensure that the principles of Federal Character are applied in the selection of a Vice Presidential candidate for the sake of fairness, equity, and inclusion.
Abure, who stated that the decision is in the hands of Presidential candidate Peter Obi, insisted that the Labour Party, which represents Nigerian workers, would not compromise on the diversity of the Nigerian workforce and membership.
“While I recognize that it may be premature for me to speak, and that the presidential candidate has the right to nominate his Vice Presidential Candidate under the constitution, I believe it is more appropriate for the presidential candidate to respond.”
“However, I want to assure you that as a reasonable party that believes in equity and justice; as a reasonable party that believes in social justice and equal opportunity for all, a widely accepted vice-presidential candidate with powerful credentials will almost certainly come from the Northern region, there is no doubt about that.”
