According to Yinusa Tanko, a spokeswoman for the Obi-Datti Campaign Organization, Mr. Peter Obi, the party’s presidential candidate in the elections of 2023, has the support of more than 71% of the nation’s youth.
Tanko said that the LP structure in Osun, which he said included the youth, artisans, Nigeria Labour Congress, Trade Union Congress, and pensioners, was being mobilized for a successful outing in the election. He made this disclosure in Osogbo, Osun State, ahead of the party’s presidential rally today (Saturday).
He added that the exit of Mr. Lasun Yusuf, a former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, will not harm the party’s standing in the state.

He said, “The structure we are talking about is the youth, artisans, NLC, TUC and pensioners. We have galvanised these structures for the battle ahead which is the 2023 general elections for Peter Obi. We are restructuring our party so that we can have a good outing in Osun.
“The Peter Obi support groups are in large numbers in Osun State and over 71 per cent of Nigerian youths are behind him. We are not perturbed with anybody decamping. We are going to take the defectors too.”
He added that the only presidential candidate for the LP who would not “buy” supporters or votes was Obi, of all the presidential contenders, who appeared to have the entire trust of Nigerians.
“You can see the love expressed by youths and Nigerians who are spending their resources on his campaign. Obi has the capacity, character, consistency, compassion and commitment to nationhood. He has been able to make a mantra from consumption to production. He is the only governor that left N75bn in coffers of state government,” he added.
