Peter Obi and Abure

Mr Peter Obi, the 2023 Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party (LP) has dismissed insinuations that his recent visit to the Abuja National Secretariat of the party was an endorsement of the Julius Abure- led National Working Committee, NWC of the party.

Rather, Obi said his visit to the secretariat was part of his ongoing reconciliatory efforts aimed at bringing every contending interests in the party together.

The Labour Party presidential candidate said this in a statement issued on his behalf by his spokesperson, Dr Yunusa Tanko, on Wednesday in Awka.

Tanko said that Obi had repeatedly maintained that his interest was to carry everybody along into one strong family, and not to endorse anyone’s interest.

He said the visit was part of consultations in search of peace in the party.
