2027: We’re the only platform for Peter Obi to win election – Labour Party

The Labour Party, (LP), has insisted that it is the only platform under which its 2023 candidate, Peter Obi, can win the 2027 presidential election.

National Vice Chairman of the party, Ayo Olorunfemi, stated this in interview on Channels a Channels TV programme, on Wednesday, June 26.

There have been calls for Obi to quit the party amid the internal crisis between members which his supporters know as ObiDients believe might taint the image of the former Anambra governor.

Reacting to the the clamours, Olorunfemi said true Obidients won’t suggest that the presidential candidate pitch his tent elsewhere.

According to him, the LP flagbearer remains the best president Nigeria has yet to have, and by the grace of God, he will emerge the winner in the next election.

He expressed confidence that the Labour Party will come out of its crisis stronger, saying that the leadership of the party under Julius Abure will fight for peace and the party and open the return of the Lamidi Apapa camp into its fold.

He said; “Well, I will just use the word delusional, those ones that are pressing for such, they are delusional. Some people can overreach themselves, the true Obidients out there, they won’t advise Peter Obi to leave the party.

“You have the true Obidients, the student unions groups, the youths of Nigeria, the hardworking people of Nigeria, are tired of what is going on in Nigeria, people are tired of hunger, which political party will he go to? To go back to PDP, APC or to Where?

“This is a political party that is based on ideology, we are social democrats here. The people that put this political party up are social democrats and that is entrenched in the constitution. So, the only place for Peter Obi to win the election in 2027 is the Labour Party and we are preparing for that”.
