The party, which has a strong presence in the South West, has promised to work hard to mobilise resources and efforts to deliver the South West to Obi.
With this coalition between the Labour Party, African Democratic Congress, and Boot Party (LP+ADC+BP), the number of polling unit agents employed to monitor activities for the OBI-DATTI movement increases astronomically to (136,874 + 96,043 + 13,544 = 246,461 agents).
In another report, Igbo Elders Consultative Forum has praised the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom over the endorsement of Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
The Eastern Updates reports that the Benue governor had announced his support for the former Anambra State governor when he addressed Igbo Community Assembly in Markurdi saying he was ready to sacrifice his senatorial ambition for Obi to win.
He called on the Igbo to seize the opportunity of Saturday’s polls to work for the election of Obi as Nigeria’s next president even as he flayed those from the South East working against the LP candidate who he described as a detribalised Nigerian.
He described the Igbo that is against Obi as outcasts.
