The support for the presidential ambition of Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), has received a boost after the former secretary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Cross River State, Dr. Ntete Bassey Duke, joined the party.
According to Daily Post, Bassey alongside other APC chieftains in the state and 50 supporters collapsed into Labour Party.
The state chairman of LP, Ambassador Ogar Osim received Bassey Duke and his supporters who now registered with Labour Party in the presence of other members of the state executive.
Ntete, a former Buhari Campaign Director-General in 2015, said APC is steadily collapsing and it is impossible to resuscitate the party.
“I had to look elsewhere from APC because as it is that party is steadily crumbling.
“I doubt much that that party will be able to recover with the way things are going,” he said.
He further thanked the leadership of LP at the national and state level for providing a platform where many Nigerians that feel uncomfortable in their parties can always move to alternative platforms and contribute their quotas to national development.
Ogar Osim congratulated Ntete and his supporters and assured them that LP is the democratic platform Nigerians are yearning for.
