Obi Joins Labour Party, Vows To Nigerians, “I’ll Never Let You Down”

  • Expected to be anointed the party’s Presidential candidate next Tuesday during the national convention in Asaba

Former Anambra State Governor, Mr. Peter Obi, has finally pitched tent with the Labour Party of Nigeria, enjoining “my fellow Nigerians to join me to take back our country.”

In a short message he personally signed after formally joining the Labour Party, Obi vowed to Nigerians: “I’ll never let you down.”

The full message reads: “The Road to Recovery:

“I thank all Nigerians, especially our youths, who have joined me in the mission of rescuing and taking back Nigeria.

“This project is yours and for the future of your children. I am just a facilitator.

“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 getting into this high office is as fundamental as what one will do thereafter.

“Therefore, I have chosen a route free of rancour and one in line with 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 the Nigerians as one family.

“I invite my fellow Nigerians to join me to take back our country.

“Be assured that I’ll never let you down.”

The Labour Party had tweeted this afternoon from @Official_LPN:

“As earlier reported, H.E Peter Obi Joins Labour Party of Nigeria, 

@PeterObi registered as a member of the party on Friday in his ward in Anambra State.

“He is expected to pick the presidential form and contest the party’s presidential primary election next Tuesday.”
