Imo APC chieftain, supporters join Labour Party, support Obi
• Nigerians will heave a sigh of relief if the party wins, says Edeoga
Imo State governorship aspirant, under the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2019 general elections, Chuks Ololo, has defected to the Labour Party (LP).
Ololo, who is husband to the former Governor Rochas Okorocha’s younger sister, Ogechi Ololo, was the former Council Chairman of Owerri North during the Okorocha administration, and also APC candidate for Owerri Federal Constituency in 2015.
Speaking at his reception held at the state party secretariat in Owerri, at the weekend, Ololo said his defection is to join forces with LP to salvage the country through the vision of the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
Similarly, the Labour Party governorship candidate in Enugu State, Chijioke Edeoga, has said that Nigerians will heave a sigh of relief if the party wins elections in 2023, saying its candidates have the capacity to turn things around for good of the people.
Edeoga told his supporters and party members, at the launch of the Enugu North campaign for the 2023 general elections in the state, that the party will pull down the wall of corruption in the country and rescue Nigerians from poverty.
He said Obi, his running mate and other candidates have the capacity, integrity and track records to rescue Nigeria.
“The mission of the party is to pull down the wall of corruption in the country and rescue Nigerians from poverty.
“Nigerians will heave a sigh of relief in 2023 when LP takes over government at the federal and states levels, as well as national and state assemblies of the country,” he said.
