Ahead of next year’s general elections, Chief Martins Agbaso who is the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) Coordinator of the Labour Party (LP) in Imo State has denied reports that the party is in crisis in the state.
Agbaso who made the disclosure during a party function in Owerri stressed that the party was still united even as he added that their various support groups were working harmoniously to ensure victory in 2023 general elections.
‘We are one party one people; all the support groups are working together; no group should be taken for granted on matters concerning every one of us,’ Agbaso said.
The former governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the state has also boasted that his party will produce the next governor of Imo State and as well win other political positions.
His words: ‘Whether they like it or not, we’re going to sack all of them from up to down once Peter Obi becomes the President, once he enters everywhere would be open.
‘Our government will win the Senate, House of Assembly and other positions the governor is guaranteed but all the candidates must be Obidient. I don’t want to know how we would fix over 160,000 kilometres of roads or over 366 schools and hospitals, the time is in the future and Labour Party will provide it,’ Agbaso said.
Giving reasons for accepting to work with Peter Obi, Agbaso said: ‘The LP presidential candidate is eminently qualified in this time of our political history. I have accepted because he is the most qualified to do the job. I won’t have accepted him if he is not eminently qualified. Apart from his qualification, he has the will to reclaim Nigeria. He is ordained by God; a day will come when leadership will fail us, a day will come when everybody will be ravaged by hunger, a day when there would be uncertainty of insecurity. In the face of these uncertainties, God brought this man who said, ‘I was governor for eight years, go and verify.’
