2023 Presidency: Group Withdraws Support For Labour Party

By Editor

As the general elections approach, the National Peace Movement has withdrawn its support for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.

The group in a statement issued in Lagos, by its National Co-Ordinator, Reverend Arome Johnson, called on Nigerian youths, to stop further mobilization for the Labour Party ahead the 2023 general elections.

The group said Obi has failed to weigh in on the worsening attacks on the electorates and electoral infrastructure in the Southeast by unknown gunmen.

Arome accused the LP Presidential candidate of not publicly condemning the spate of insecurity in the Southeast.

The movement advised the Nigerian youths to stop further mobilization for Obi as he has persistently failed to condemn these clandestine activities.

“Our movement is worried that the party has failed to condemn the atrocious crimes even when each successive attack makes it clearer that the masterminds are bent on jeopardizing the general elections in the region.

The party’s flagbearer’s silence over this unfolding development, according to the group, suggests that his anticipated pathway to the presidency does not include emergence through a popular vote.

“Furthermore, his campaign team has not done much to distance its candidate from the online rants of social media accounts.

The party’s inability to to condemn activities of separatist movements publicly suggests that the unity, safety, and corporate integrity of Nigeria may not be guaranteed if LP wins the presidential election.

“Therefore, we call on the youths in the country to consider the future, the unity and the safety of Nigeria and Nigerians by withdrawing the support for LP and voting for someone who will put Nigeria social economic and political growth first ahead of other considerations.
