Peter Obi joins Labour Party

Former governor of Anambra State and erstwhile presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi, has officially joined the Labour Party (LP) to contest the 2023 presidential election.

Peter Obi registered as a member of the party on Friday in his ward in Anambra state.

He will contest the party’s presidential primary election next Tuesday.

Obi officially dumped the PDP some days back citing recent developments within the party making it difficult to continue to participate in the process.

In a statement through a series of tweets, Peter Obi said, “Since I resigned from the PDP because of issues that are at variance with my persona and principles, I have consulted widely with various parties and personalities to ensure we do not complicate the route to our desired destination.

“For me, the process of achieving our goal is as fundamental as what one will do thereafter.

“Therefore, I have chosen a route that I consider to be in line with our aspirations and my mantra of taking the country from consumption to production; and that is the Labour Party which is synonymous with the people, workers, development, production, securing and uniting Nigerians as one family.

“I invite all Nigerians to join me in taking back our country. Be assured that I’ll never let you down.”
