I am not leaving Labour Party —Peter Obi

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, in the last presidential election, Peter Obi has declared that he would not leave Labour Party (LP).

Obi was responding to rumours making the rounds that he would dump LP for Social Democratic Party, SDP.

The former Anambra state governor made this known on Sunday while fielding questions from journalists in Gombe shortly after donating a borehole to the ram market in Tike Pantami.

He said, “No, there is no such thing. I’m for peace, I like peace. I believe we are one people. Our concentration should be on peace, and I believe that we will resolve all situations.”

It would be recalled that the Nigeria Labour Congress, through its spokesman, Benson Upah, had said that Obi is free to leave the LP, saying that the congress would not stand in his way if he chooses to leave.


In his words: “The right of choice is available to Mr Obi. If he chooses to leave the party, that is his preference. We can’t sit in judgment over him on that. But if he chooses to remain, of course, Peter Obi is an asset any day. I rest my case on that.”
