by Victor Ndubuisi

The Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Organization intends to formally introduce the P.O. Presidential Campaign Council, barring any last-minute changes.

This information was provided on an invitation card that was signed by Dr. Doyin Okupe, the director general of the Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Organization.

The unveiling event will take place on Wednesday at noon at the Golden Hall of the Chelsea Hotel in Abuja’s Central Business District, according to the invitation.

The invitation tagged: “The Director General Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Organisation, Dr Doyin Okupe Cordially Invites you to a Pre-Campaign World Press Conference and the presentation of the Presidential Campaign list …” was signed by Emeka Edmond Onwuocha, on behalf of Okupe.


But the Labour Party has denied knowledge of any Presidential Campaign Council unveiling.

According to report, the party is not officially involved in the planning nor has it sanctioned the programme.

One source said, “As I speak to you, the Labour Party has not okayed any list of members of the Presidential Campaign Council because there are yet-to-be-resolved issues.

“Most of us are of the opinion that our campaign council must be all-embracing and enjoy the national spread. We must not repeat the mistakes of the political parties we want to replace.

“Our Presidential candidate is from the South, the DG of the campaign is also currently from the South. The provisional list I saw leaves out most of the north.

“There is no official of substance from the North East, North West and the North Central for example.


“How can we campaign in these places when we know what we are up against with Atiku and Kwankwaso in the North and Tinubu in the South?

“Even the Diaspora Committee earlier inaugurated is almost exclusive to one section of the country.”
