The Labour Party (LP) has refuted reports that ahead of next month’s presidential election, some important members of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council were considering aligning with Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Describing the report as baseless, Special Adviser to Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, on Technology and Strategic Alliances, Valentine Ozigbo, in a statement said the LP flagbearer noted that the story was aimed at derailing the massive momentum of the ‘Obidient Movement’ all over the world.

“The claims reported on a faceless online medium are completely false and baseless. The Labour Party is committed to supporting its presidential candidate and his vision for leading Nigeria out of its current travails,” the statement read.
“We firmly believe Obi is the best candidate for the presidency, considering his track record of solid leadership, as well as a clear plan to address challenges facing our country.
“He has consistently demonstrated deep understanding of the needs of the Nigerians and has the experience, as well as expertise needed to implement effective policies, which would bring about real change.
“It is disappointing that some elements within the PDP are spreading false rumours, and engaging in underhanded tactics rather than focusing on a fair and open contest of ideas. This unprofessional conduct indicates their fear of fair competition and lack of confidence in their own candidate’s abilities.”
