The campaign team of Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi clarified that his recent visit to the party’s secretariat in Abuja was aimed at reconciliation, not endorsement, contrary to some media reports.

This clarification was made by Obi’s campaign spokesman, Yunusa Tanko, in a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday.

The visit of the former Anambra governor, along with his supporters, to the Labour Party leadership at the national secretariat on Tuesday had been widely reported in the media.

Some reports had framed the visit as an endorsement of the current party leadership and the National Working Committee (NWC) members, especially after a contentious national convention that saw them return to office.

Tanko refuted these reports, emphasising that the visit was intended to foster reconciliation within the party.

“Obi’s visit to Labour Party headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday was a reconciliatory move not to endorse any group interest in the party,” Tanko stated.

He reiterated that Obi’s focus was on uniting the party and ensuring that all members felt included and supported.

Tanko further noted that the visit was part of a broader consultation effort by Obi to achieve peace within the Labour Party.

This included a meeting with the political arms of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) on Wednesday, as Obi continued his quest to unify the party.

“Obi’s visit to Labour Party headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday was a reconciliatory move not to endorse any group interest in the party.

“Obi had repeatedly maintained that his interest was to carry everybody along into one strong family and not to endorse anyone’s interests.

“The visit was part of the consultations Obi has been embarking on in search of peace in the party. In line with this, he also met with the political arm of the NLC and TUC on Wednesday in continuation of his search for peace in the party.

“At his meeting with the workers’ union, the leadership of the NLC/TUC political commission led by comrade Titus Amba and comrade Chris Uyot was also disposed to peace in the party.

“He clearly made the point that the party needed to reconcile all its various positions in a peaceful atmosphere to have a united house that should be all-inclusive.

“He thanked the leadership of the political commission for their understanding and expressed hope for a good working relationship very shortly.

The LP standard bearer also plans to meet with other critical stakeholders like the Obidient to have an all-inclusive political family with a common dream of rescuing Nigeria.”...Continue The Full Reading.>’.
