Mr. Peter Obi and Barrister Olumide Akpata

 

Mr. Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 general election, on Saturday, in Benin, the Edo State capital, participated in the official launch of the campaign of his party’s governorship candidate in the state, Barrister Olumide Akpata and his running mate, Alhaji Yusuf Kadiri.

Mr. Obi, former Governor of Anambra State, was joined by the national leadership of the LP, and some Senators elected on the platform of the party – the Senator representing Edo South in the National Assembly (NASS),  Senator Neda Bernards Imasuen, Senators Victor Umeh and Tony Nwoye from Anambra State, and Kelvin Chukwu from Enugu State, as well as by crowds of LP members and other well wishers.

The campaign in Edo State, according to Mr. Obi, is “aimed to connect with the people and spread our message of hope and transformation for a new Nigeria.

“It started from our LP Gubernatorial candidate’s campaign Secretariat and concluded with a courtesy visit to the Palace of the Oba of Benin, where we sought royal blessings for free, fair, and credible elections and reaffirmed our commitment to Edo State’s welfare and prosperity.”

The Edo guber polls will hold on September 21, this year.
