Peter Obi- Labour Party Presidential Candidate

Quagmire in Peter Obi new Party 

The LP’s political quagmire took a new turn yesterday when its acting national chairman, Calistus Uju Okafor, announced ambassador Jude Ezenwafor as the party’s presidential candidate ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

At the Excel Hotel and Resort, Garki 2, Abuja, where Okafor was announced as the candidate to fly the party’s flag next year, Okafor was described as “a man of integrity.”

Former Anambra State Chairman of the LP, Ezenwafor, was elected through what Okafor described as “affirmation” during the party’s primary, which included members from all over the country.

“Having met all of the party’s requirements, we hereby affirm you to be the presidential candidate of the Labour Party come 2023,” Okafor said of the presidential candidate.

“I am not against you,” the LP Acting National Chairman said, referring to the former Anambra State Governor and Labour Party Presidential candidate, Peter Obi, whom the other faction of the LP had presented as its presidential candidate. My front doors are wide open.Doyin Okupe , Peter Obi

“I’m fighting for what I believe to be my right.” I’m not going to fight my brother. Those who believe I’m being used should reconsider.”

Ezenwafor revealed to journalists after his reappearance that he was on a “rescue mission.”

According to Ezenwafor, who served as the Senior Special Assistant to former Governor Willie Obiano, “Nigeria needs to be rescued” because of the country’s insecurity. The Labour Party is on a revolutionary path, and it will win the general election.

“Our party is going to take over Nigeria and restore the country’s glory.”

“I’ve spent the last 20 years in the halls of government.” “We’re on a rescue mission,” he explained.

Former Governor Chinwoke Mbadinuju worked with Ezenwafor, and former Governor Chris Ngige served for four months under former Governor Peter Obi.

Okafor went on to say that his position and actions were motivated by the need to ensure justice, fairness, and equity, and that he had nothing against former governor Peter Obi personally.

Following the sacking of the LP’s late chairman, Abdulkadir Abdulsalam, Okafor insisted that he remained the party’s acting national chairman. He also clarified that he and a former presidential spokesperson, Dr. Doyin Okupe, had yet to reach an agreement.

“On Doyin Okupe, it is unfortunate that people take someone else for granted,” he said, adding that no meaningful discussion had taken place between him and Okupe, who is now the campaign manager for Obi. I’m not sure why people want to exploit others for their own gain.

“I’m on a mission to bring justice to the world.” There is no way for an acting national secretary to take over the national chairmanship position in any political party. The deputy vice-chairman and zonal vice-chairmen are in charge.

“There is no provision in the constitution that allows an acting national secretary to take over a political party’s leadership when the deputy national chairman and zonal vice chairmen are absent.” Peter Obi, I am not a witch hunter.

“When Okupe called, I told him I was up for a conversation. I was taken aback when he went to the press and contradicted what I had told him.

“It was clear that he wanted to take advantage of me. The other faction’s leadership is attempting to recognize my desire for recognition. It’s a personal affront to me.


“They should be aware that their leader is acting national secretary and that I, Calistus Uju Okafor, am acting national chairman.” They will be removed by the court in the near future. I am very open to any discussion about doing the right thing.

“The other faction’s leader should continue to serve as acting national secretary while I serve as acting national chairman.” Every other position in the Labour Party will remain unchanged until we all comply with the consent judgement, which mandates the holding of an all-inclusive and expansive convention.”

Peter Obi Party.
