Peter Obi Urges Patience Over LP Campaign List

ABUJA – Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has urged patience from those aggrieved at the recently released list of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).

In a tweet on his official Twitter handle, Obi echoed admissions of “omission” in the list as earlier stated by the national chairman, Julius Abure.

“I’ve received several calls of concern following the release of the Labour Party’s Presidential Campaign Council list. Admittedly, there were some omissions and erroneous entries in the list, hence the concerns expressed.

“In response, the Labour Party Chairman in the presence of members of the NWC addressed the issues during a press conference.

In keeping with our commitment to accountability, responsiveness and transparency, an updated list will be issued in due course. I plead for patience,” he said.

The party on Wednesday released a 1,234-member presidential campaign council to drive its 2023 electoral efforts.

The list however generated intense controversy as stakeholders frowned at the inclusion of some names in the PCC and Presidential Advisory Council (PAC).

Consequently, LP after an extended National Working Committee (NWC) meeting on Thursday in Abuja, assured that it will review and update the document, and release a supplementary one.

The opposition party said that this will take place before the inauguration of the council.
