Allegations that Peter Obi, the party’s presidential candidate, traveled abroad to seek foreign finance for his campaigns have prompted a response from the Labour Party (LP).
In an interview with Newsmen, the Labour Party’s national publicity secretary, Abayomi Oluwafemi, denied the allegations.
Oluwafemi referred to the allegations that the party was looking for foreign finance for its operations as an attempt by the rival parties to discredit its presidential candidate.
He said: “It is ridiculous that our political opponents have descended to a new low to insinuate that our party is oblivious of electoral laws.
“Our candidate, Mr. 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.”
Oluwafemi similarly shot down rumors that the party leadership and the presidential candidate were at odds over campaign financing.
