Speaking at a Press Conference, the Acting National Youth Leader of the Labour Party (LP), Mr Kennedy Ahanotu, has boasted of victories in Lagos, Rivers Edo and some other states in the forthcoming elections.
Ahanotu said that “the governorship and state House of Assembly elections across the country will give us another opportunity to identify true Obidients.”
He urged members to take note that the Labour Party stands by all its candidates in this election and it is not in alliance with any party.
“In the last election, they said we are four persons tweeting in a room, but to their shock, we took over the space and despite all the fraud they allocated over six million votes to us even when they claim that Obidients are not more than 15 million people having PVCs to vote.
“We must protest by coming out en masse to cast our notes for the Labour Party governorship candidates and House of Assembly Candidates.
“This simple assignment is the first step in telling the world that Labor Party won the election.
“Let us show the opposition that we are resolute in the project of taking back our country. We must capture Lagos, Edo, Plateau, Benue, Taraba, Rivers, Abia, and Anambra, in fact, we will capture all the South-South and South-East states.”
Ahanotu also called on ‘Obidients’ to challenge the status quo and urged youths, security officials and staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to cease to be ready tools in the hands of politicians.
“Do not join in oppressing and intimidating our Youths. The life and future of Nigerian Youths matter. Enough is Enough,” he warned.
Ahanotu also urged Obidients to desist from selfish desires and focus on making a political statement on election day.
It is noteworthy that many of ‘obidients’ are not card-carrying members of the Labour Party but support the party due to their love for Peter Obi.
