LP optimistic of winning in Lagos, seeks Obi’s intervention in crisis
Members of the Labour Party (LP) in Lagos State have expressed optimism that the party will win 2023 general elections in the state. They said this was evidenced by the success and large turnout of supporters during a five-million-man rally for the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, in the state.
Representative of Peter Obi Support Group and Chairman, Labour Party, Ifako-Ijaiye Local Council, Samuel Azikiwe, who gave the assurance at a media briefing, at the weekend, restated that the party is an all-inclusive democratic party built on transparency and discipline.
Also, Vice Chairman of the party, Tony Masha, who cleared the air on the party having any faction, urged Obi to bring harmony to the state’s party to enable it succeed in the 2023 general elections.
Masha said the party had been organising and mobilising members for the party in the state, as well as establishing structures at the local council and ward levels.
He, however, berated one Kayode Salako for parading himself as the state’s caretaker committee chairman. He said since the party is committed to building a strong and inclusive democratic party for future generations, it had reconstituted an authentic 25-man caretaker committee to ensure stability and viability of the party.
Masha, therefore, urged that the party’s National Chairman, Julius Abure, to caution Salako from interfering with the party’s democratic structures in local councils.
