In the Imo North Senatorial District of Imo State on Sunday, members of the two majority parties in Nigeria, the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress, collapsed their structures into the Labour Party and pledged their loyalty and support to its presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
At a ceremony in the Umuaro hamlet of the state’s Isiala Mbano Local Government Area, nearly 2,000 individuals joined the LP.
According to Chikwem Onuoha, a former Deputy Chief of Staff to a former governor of the state, the decision was made after an inquiry proved that Obi was the best presidential candidate among the other contenders.
Onuoha, said that APC and PDP had misruled Nigeria for the past 23 years, adding that it was time Nigerians voted Obi to rescue the country.
The APC chieftain said, “Today, APC and PDP are dead in Okigwe zone. We have resolved to collapse our structures in the zone into the Labour Party and to work for the victory of Peter Obi. Peter Obi symbolises the hope of the ordinary people of Nigeria.
“Peter Obi is tested and trusted and he has the support of the people who vote during the election. Apart from Obi, we will vote LP all through. The Labour Party is for a mass movement. We are wiser and we want to take back our country.”
The President General of the Okigwe North Youth Progressives Forum, Chidinma Onyenagubo, said that his group was mobilising people to obtain their Permanent Voters Cards to vote for LP In 2023.
