*** Says visit to LP reconciliatory, not endorsement.

The Presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 general elections, Peter Obi has denied the report that he has endorsed the embattled national chairman of the party, Julius Abure

Reports of Obi’s purported support for Abure went wide on Tuesday following his visit to Labour Party headquarters in Abuja 

Denying the report, the former governor of Anambra state emphasized that his visit was part of his moves to reconcile the warring factions involved in the leadership crisis that is currently  rocking the party

The LP national leader in a statement issued by his aide, Tanko Yinusa on Wednesday, noted that Obi had repeatedly maintained that his interest was to carry everybody along into one strong family and not to endorse anyone’s interest.

“The visit was part of the consultations Obi has been embarking on in search of peace in the party.

“In line with this, he also met with the political arm of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC Trade Union Congress, and TUC, on Wednesday in continuation of his search for peace in the party.

“At his meeting with the workers’ union, the leadership of the NLC/TUC political commission led by comrade Titus Amba and comrade Chris Uyot was also disposed to peace in the party.

“At the meeting, he clearly made the point that the party needed to reconcile all various positions in a peaceful atmosphere to have a united house that should be all-inclusive.

“He thanked the leadership of the political commission for their understanding and expressed the hope for a good working relationship very shortly.

“The LP standards bearer also plans to meet with other critical stakeholders like the Obidient to have an all-inclusive political family with a common dream of rescuing Nigeria.”
