Peter Obi Emerges Labour Party Presidential Candidate

Former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has emerged as the presidential candidate of the Labour Party.

He emerged at Labour Party’s Convention and presidential primary held in Asaba, Delta State.

Earlier at the convention, Professor Pat Utomi stepped down for Obi.

Utomi announced that Obi is a younger aspirant with the capacity to effect the needed change in the Nigerian system.

Also, another aspirant, 45-year-old Joseph Faduri stepped down for the former governor.

Obi, who was a presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, resigned from the PDP and also withdrew from the presidential race on the platform of the party on May 25.

He announced his resignation in a letter titled “Resignation From PDP and Withdrawal from the Presidential Contest” addressed to the PDP National Chairman, dated May 24.

Obi, in the letter made available to newsmen last Wednesday in Abuja, attributed the decision to recent developments within PDP.

Obi, who was a former governor of Anambra State, was also the party’s running mate to PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar in the 2015 presidential election.
