The Labour Party's Lamidi Apapa faction has advised the party's 2023 presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to seek another political platform to pursue his presidential ambition ahead of the 2027 elections, stating that he will not receive the party's ticket in the country's next election.
Prior to 2027, the Apapa faction said it had begun looking for another presidential candidate.
Abayomi Arabambi, the faction's spokesperson, revealed this on Wednesday in an interview with Punch.
President Bola Tinubu was declared the victor of the 2023 presidential election by the Presidential Election Petitions Court, and Arambambi delivered his remarks against this backdrop. On Tuesday, Obi appealed this decision at the Supreme Court.
The Julius Abure and Obi factions' decision to take Tinubu's victory to court was not supported by the Apapa-led LP faction.
He asserts that Obi's alleged poor management of human resources caused him to lose the election.
The spokesperson, Abayomi Arabambi stated: “My advice is for him (Obi) to go and start preparing for 2027. But it has to be in another party, not in LP.
“We are not going to allow this kind of rascality to continue in 2027. We will look for a fresh candidate as far as we are concerned.
“Obi is free to go back to APGA to run, not Labour Party. We don’t want to continue accommodating a character who believes no other person, other than himself, has anything upstairs.
“He is not a good manager of human resources. That was why he lost woefully.”
