The former Governor of Anambra State and the running mate of the Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in the 2019 Presidential election Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi has formerly joined the Labour Party.
Peter Obi resigned his membership of the PDP few days ago.
Peter Obi has been given the membership card of the Labour Party.
After joining the Labour Party, Peter Obi writes to his supporters in part:
“The Road to Recovery
I thank all Nigerians, especially our youths, who have joined me in the mission of rescuing and taking back Nigeria.
This project is yours and for the future of your children. I am just a facilitator.
Since I resigned from the PDP because of issues that are at variance with my persona and principles, I have consulted widely with various parties and personalities to ensure we do not complicate the route to our desired destination.
For me, the process of getting into this high office is as fundamental as what one will do thereafter.
Therefore, I have chosen a route free of rancour and one in line with my mantra of taking the country from consumption to production and that is the Labour Party, which is synonymous with the people, workers, development, production, securing and uniting the Nigerians as one family.
I invite my fellow Nigerians to join me to take back our country.
Be assured that I’ll never let you down.
