Peter Obi, the Labour Party Presidential candidate for the 2023 elections, has expressed confidence in the LP’s ability to overcome its internal challenges and emerge stronger.

Speaking to journalists in Abuja, Obi compared the internal struggles within the LP to those faced by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), suggesting that the issues in the latter parties were more severe.


Obi acknowledged the ongoing attempts by the Nigerian Labour Congress to unseat the LP’s National Chairman, Julius Abure, and the factional disputes within the party.

However, he remained optimistic that the LP would address these challenges and focus on its objectives.

He emphasized the importance of addressing the needs of ordinary Nigerians and urged political parties to prioritize serving the people rather than focusing solely on internal matters.

Regarding speculation about his presidential aspirations in 2027 and criticism he faced for questioning the timing and prioritization of government projects, Obi clarified that his main concern is improving the lives of Nigerians, not personal ambition.

Obi highlighted the urgent need to address infrastructure challenges, particularly the state of existing roads, before embarking on new projects.

He emphasized the importance of completing ongoing road construction projects and prioritizing repairs on existing roads to improve transportation and connectivity across the country.

In response to questions about the LP’s financial management, Obi confirmed that a forensic audit of the party’s accounts is underway, following his request for an independent audit firm to probe the allegations raised by former National
Treasurer, Oluchi Oparah.

He assured that updates on the audit would be provided once it is completed.
