Peter Obi Set For 2023 Presidential Battle, Grabs Labour Party Ticket

Former Anambra State Governor, Mr. Peter Obi, has emerged the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party of Nigeria for the 2023 election.

Obi was elected unopposed early Monday afternoon, May 30, 2022, during the party’s National Convention, which is on-going at Orchid Hotel, Asaba, Delta State.  

His emergence became clear when his challenger, political economist, Professor Pat Utomi, stepped down for him, saying: “Obi must be given the opportunity to govern this country.”

The Labour Party website had crashed on Friday night, May 27, 2022 – hours after Obi, a popular 2023 presidential aspirant, joined the party.

He had resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday and announced his switch to Labour Party on Friday evening, urging Nigerians, particularly the youth, to join him in his new political party.
