I’ve no intentions to leave Labour Party – Peter Obi



Presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP), in the 2023 general elections, Peter Obi, has debunked rumours that he is planning to  dump the party despite the internal crisis rocking the party at the moment,

Obi also reiterated that that he is not in any way desperate to be Nigeria’s President at any point in his life.

The former Anambra State governor was fielding questions from journalists in Bauchi on Sunday shortly after commissioning a hand pump for water supply in Sabon Layi community, a suburb of Bauchi metropolis.

Obi said, “I am not thinking of 2027, my concern for now is how to improve the living standards and conditions of Nigerians.

“Nobody should be talking about politics now, the focus should be on good governance that will make Nigeria better.”

Speaking on the internal crisis rocking the opposition party, Obi said, “The leadership crisis in the LP presently is not an abnormal thing, it is an in-house problem and it will be solved amicably as a family.

“I have never thought of leaving the LP, I only advocated for peace because I am a man who believes in peace, I am a man who believes in unity, I am a man who believes that we are the same.

“I don’t see any difference between you and me; by the grace of God I always want to do the right thing.

“That is the reason I came here personally, I would have asked someone to represent me, no, I didn’t.”
