Peter Obi’s Visit To  Labour Party Secretariat Not An Endorsement Of Anyone— Spokesman 

By Damilare Adeleye

The spokesman of the defunct Obi-Datti Campaign Organisation, Yunusa Tanko, has said that Peter Obi’s visit to the Labour Party headquarters on Tuesday was part of his move to reconcile different interests within the party and not to endorse anybody.

It was reported that a statement by the party claimed that with his visit, its former presidential candidate in the 2023 election endorsed Julius Abure-led national working committee.

But in a statement on Wednesday, Tanko said that Obi’s visit was occasioned by his quest to resolve the misunderstanding between the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), the Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the party leadership.

“Obi’s visit to Labour Party yesterday was not to endorse anybody, but occassioned by his reconcilliatory move. Julius Abure in his speech stated clearly how Obi came to the office, and Obi in his speech clarified same, while preaching peace, and his mantra Pursuit of better Nigeria for the poor

“Leadership of NLC/TUC Political Arm Commorades Titus Amba and Chris Uyot who were informed of Obi travelling out today, hence will honour thier invitation, also met with him, and extensively discussed same peace move with them.

“Obi had repeatedly maintained that his interest was to carry everybody along into one strong family, and not to support one against the other.

“In all his meetings with all stakeholders, he has always maintained peace, and urge not to lose purpose which is to free Nigeria suffering and pain.

“The LP standards bearer plans to continue meeting with critical stakeholders, and groups to achieve all-inclusive political family with a common dream of rescuing Nigeria,” the statement read.
