The Labour Party (LP) has said it was not in alliance with any political party for the March 11, 2023 governorship and State Assembly elections.
National Chairman of the Party, Julius Abure, made the clarification in a statement amidst reports from people it called ‘political opportunists’ from other political platforms, claiming that they have reached agreement with ‘Obidients’ and LP supporters to cast their ballots for them in Saturday’s polls.
Abure said Labour Party was leaving nothing to chance in ensuring that its candidates not only participate in the gubernatorial and State House of Assembly elections, but win at the ballot.
“We want to state categorically and unequivocally that the national secretariat of LP has not given any instructions for any chapter of the party to liaise or support any candidate except LP candidates in this Saturday’s polls.
“Our members should not only go out and vote, but follow the process to a conclusive end as provided by the Law.
“We encourage millions of the electorate who believe in LP presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi and the philosophy of the party not to be deterred, but troop out en masse and vote for all LP candidates anywhere in the country. The LP is not in any alliance with any political party in the run-up to this Saturday’s polls”, he added.
