Labour Party Reveals Why Peter Obi Is Meeting With Nigerians In Diaspora

The Labour Party (LP) has refuted rumors that Peter Obi, a contender for president, was looking for foreign finance for his campaigns.

According to, several Nigerians have criticized Peter Obi for visiting other nations to meet Nigerians living abroad and for the LP’s creation of a contentious committee.

Abayomi Oluwafemi, the national publicity secretary of the Labour Party, clarified the situation in a phone interview with Newsmen on Saturday. She referred to the claims that the party was also looking for foreign funding for its operations as part of the pranks of political rivals who were scared off by the party’s rising profile and its presidential candidate.

Oluwafemi said: “It is ridiculous that our political opponents have descended to a new low to insinuate that our party is oblivious of electoral laws.


“For the avoidance of doubt, neither our party nor our candidate is seeking for foreign funding for any of our activities.

“Our candidate, Peter Obi, is hitting the ground running.

“He is reaching out to Nigerians in the diaspora most of whom have lost confidence in the current administration and see no reason to come home to invest.

“He is getting them ready to have a rethink because the incoming Labour Party-led administration which by the grace of God, he and Datti will be leading, will provide an enabling environment for direct foreign investment required to revive our ailing economy which the APC has unfortunately destroyed.”
