The Presidential Campaign Organisation of Labour Party Candidate, Peter Obi, has announced a plan to present its list of council nominees to Nigerians on Wednesday.
This was made known in an invitation card shared by the Director General of the Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Organisation, Doyin Okupe which was obtained by The Eastern Updates.
Okupe said the unveiling ceremony, tagged ‘Pre-Campaign World Press Conference‘, will take place at Chelsea Hotel in Central Area of Abuja by 12.00 noon on Wednesday.
The development is coming four days after the LP presidential candidate launched an official website to promote his political campaign and solicit funds ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
The former Anambra governor made the announcement in a tweet via his verified Twitter handle.
Obi, who encouraged his supporters to visit the official campaign website for the Obi-Datti Campaign organisation, pointed out that donations from willing donors could also be made through the platform.
However, reports emanating from the camp of Labour Party indicated that the unveiling of the campaign list was not LP’s initiative.
A source within the party who spoke to reporters under the condition of anonymity accused the camp of Okupe of coming up with programmes without the input of the party leadership.
As of the time of filing this story, the National Publicity of the Party, Abayomi Arabambi, was yet
But National Youth Leader of Labour Party and the Edo North Senatorial Candidate, Anselm Eragbe, told newsmen that there was no crack in the party as alleged.
When asked if it is apt for such an event to hold in the absence of the presidential candidate of LP, who is still not back in the country, Eragbe disagreed.
