 Labour Party Chairmen Distance Self From Fallacious Statement, Re-Affirm Support For Peter Obi

We’ve instructed our lawyers to take legal action against the said Mallam Sanni

The 36 state Chairmen of the Labour Party on Friday reaffirmed their support and readiness for the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi and his running mate for Saturday’s presidential election.

Speaking with journalists in Ilorin, the chairman of all the 36 state chairmen as well as that of the FCT, Comrade Kehinde Rotimi, said that people should be wary of a last-minute attempt to cause disunity in the party.

Comrade Kehinde Rotimi, who doubles as the Kwara state chairman of the Labour Party described as untrue a statement credited to the Gombe state chairman of the party, Mallam Abdullahi Sanni, to the effect that the 36 state chairmen of the party were not pleased with the party’s presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi.

According to him, all the party state chairmen unanimously distance themselves from a statement emanated from one mallam Sani.

The statement read; “Our attention has been drawn to a particular statement going around by one self-acclaimed coordinator of 36 States chairmen in the country, one Sani.

“We are disassociating ourselves from that statement, it is not only fallacious, but it is also untrue, unfounded and baseless.

“At no time did any state chairmen meet and discussed that we are not satisfied with the leadership of our presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi and the National Chairman.

He said recently all the state party chairmen met and pass a vote of confidence on the party presidential candidate and the national chairman, Barrister Julius Abure.

He said the alleged speaker is not speaking on behalf of the chairmen and all state chairmen are solidly behind Peter Obi.

Mr. Rotimi stated that the Labour party has no crisis, and assured that the party agents are on the ground and fully ready to monitor tomorrow’s election.

“And we’ve instructed our lawyers to take legal action against the said Mallam Sanni on the erroneous statement credited to him”.

He, however, urged the general public to disregard the statement in its entirety, and come out en mass to vote for the Presidential Candidate.

In a similar development, the coalition for Peter Obi support group in Kwara state also denied rumour of collapse structure for another party, said the party is intact.

It is recalled that some members of the Coalition of Peter Obi Support Groups (CPO) in Kwara state on Wednesday raised the alarm over an alleged plot by some candidates and leaders of the party in the state to negotiate the collapse of the political structure of both the presidential and vice presidential candidates of the party, OBIDATTI structure, with a political party, ahead of the Saturday presidential elections.

Speaking with journalists in Ilorin, the secretary of the CPO in the state, Mr Omoniyi Idowu and the state Lead Coordinator, (M&E) of the group, Mr Aloysius Nwora, flanked by some other leaders of the group, said that they had never and would never collapse their structure or form any alliance with any political party or group of people “to sell the OBIDATTI mandate”.
