Leadership of the Labour Party (LP) said the party is set to handle its detractors, as well as issues that may arise from recent inflow of new members with diverse interests.

They reiterated their commitment to galvanise massive support and to deepen the party’s grassroots base before the 2023 general elections.

The National Vice Chairman of LP, South East, Innocent Okeke; a governorship candidate of the party in 2019, Chief Ikechukwu Ukaegbu; Secretary of the party in Imo State, Chief Fab Okochi; Felix Nwachukwu and other chieftains of the party stated this after the party’s stakeholders meeting, held in Owerri yesterday.

They expressed optimism on the party’s readiness to win the 2023 general elections, stressing that the party has continued to record massive support across the country, especially from the youths and civil servants.

According to Ukaegbu, “LP, as at today, has taken over the country. And for those who are bent on discrediting our support and grassroots strength, we are going to shock them in 2023.

“In LP, we have a formidable leadership arrangement. We are disciplined and focused on the task. And we are not going to tolerate anything that would distract or destabilise us from recovering this country in 2023.

“So, while our arms are open to receive new members, we are ready to contend with detractors and others, who are joining us with their personal interests.

“We are optimistic that LP is going to win the 2023 presidential election. The support base is growing and we are not going to leave anything to chance.

“Also, as we speak, we are on course in deepening the party at the grassroots across the country and before the elections in February, 2023, the opposition will be surprised with the strength of the party at the grassroots.”
