Obi hints on leaving LP over protracted crisis, says he won't die with them

March 31, 2024

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 general elections, Mr Peter Obi, may be on his way out of the Labour Party if the leadership crisis in the party persists.

The former Anambra State governor gave the hint on Saturday during an engagement with his supporters on his Verified X space, hosted by Parallel Facts.

Obi explained that his primary focus, which committed members of the Obidient Movement have bought into; is all about making Nigeria work for all citizens; as such, he refuses to be distracted. 

He noted that the protracted crisis in the Labour Party was part of a distractive strategy, which neither he nor his supporters were willing to fall for. 

Obi said: “Our engagement is about Nigeria, they are trying to change our focus. What we want to do is not about Labour Party; it is about what the Obidients want to do about Nigeria.


 “We are thinking about water, we are thinking about power, we are thinking about employment, thinking about security. That should be our focus. 

“The other matter we will deal with. We were somewhere, we didn’t start with Labour.

“I’m a Christian. Jesus said, When you go into a city, try to change them, live with them, fast with them. in the end, you can’t, come out and even wash the sand that is on your shoes. 

“He didn’t say go there and die with them. I tell you, I’m making spirited efforts to change them (LP), but I’m not going to die with them. 

“That will not stop what we set out to do. We will try to change them (LP), if we can’t, we will leave them; we will not die with them.”
