The Labour Party has unveiled a 1,234-member list of its Presidential Campaign Council list.
This was made public by the National Organising Secretary, Mr. Clement Ojukwu, at a Pre-Campaign Press Conference, in Abuja, on Wednesday.
Also contained in the list are members of the advisory Council, state coordinators and directors of the various directorates of the campaign council.
The National Chairman of the Labour Party, Julious Abure as Chairman of the Advisory Council of the PCC while Osaleka Obaze was named General Manager of the Campaign.
Speaking at the unveiling ceremony, Dr Doyin Okupe, who’s the Director-General of the campaign, said the processes through which Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar emerged as presidential candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are “dishonourable” and “flawed”.
“In all honesty, these errors of selfish and opportunistic political manipulation are not only short-sighted and dangerous, but strike at the very heart of Nigeria’s peaceful coexistence, and in fact the very survival of the nation as an entity,” he said.
“And that is why, in response to this affront to good judgement, more than at any time in our history, our country is today witnessing her hottest, fiercest and most dynamic citizen-led political experience, spearheaded largely by the youth population.
The director-general of the LP campaign described the ‘Obidient’ movement as organic.
“At this juncture, for the avoidance of doubt, let me state here clearly that our party, the Labour Party, as well as the Obi-Datti presidential ticket of the party, have not spent a kobo to organise, influence, or secure the massive following and support we have been getting from the Obidient Movement to date,” he added.
