2023: Labour Party To Announce Peter Obi’s Running July 8

The Labour Party is expected to announce the running mate to its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, latest on Friday, July 8, 2022.

Recall that the party had earlier in June announced former presidential aide Doyin Okupe as the party’s vice-presidential candidate.

The spokesman of the National Consultative Front (NCFront), Yunusa Tanko, in an interview with Daily Sun on Tuesday, said LP would reveal Obi’s running mate on or before Friday.

According to Tanko, the Labour Party Campaign Organisation has consulted widely for a vice-presidential candidate.

He said, “We are building a big tent, we want to build a crossbreed political formation, we are doing what is called constructive consultation, and I want to put it on record that the Labour Party Campaign Organisation, which is mandated to speak on the vice-presidential candidate said that the talks on looking for a running mate has been concluded and between now and Friday the name of the vice-presidential candidate will be unveiled to the public.

“The issue we are going through now is discussions with those who want to join the party, but we have gone beyond an alliance with NNPP, we are now talking about unveiling the vice-presidential candidate of LP before the end of Friday by the grace of God.”

The party had tried to form an alliance with the New Nigeria Peoples Party and its presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso, but the former Governor of Kano State refused to be Obi’s running mate.
