Labour Party is now a national party

Chukwuebuka maintained that the Labour Party crisis indicates that the Labour Party is now a national party, and no national party is without an internal crisis.

APC chieftain advises Peter Obi

Chukwuebuka said:

“I don’t think it will be right for Obi to return to PDP. There is no big party that is crisis-free. The crisis in LP shows that they are now a national party than when they don’t have any elective personnel.

“The PDP you might be suggesting is not crisis-free, and a lot will still happen in PDP before 2027. Obi is a big figure in LP, so he should remain there for ease of access to the presidential ticket.”

There have been speculations that Peter Obi is planning a merger with the former governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai, at the Social Democratic Party (PDP).

Obi’s supporter set to dump Labour Party

TheTalk.NG earlier reported that Peter Obi’s influential supporter, Joseph Onuorah, had announced a plan to join the Labour Party of the APC when next he was in Nigeria.

Onuorah, a Nigerian in the diaspora, said he had had a great ride with the Labour Party during his stay at the opposition party.

The announcement came barely 24 hours after the re-election of Julius Abure as the national chairman of the Labour Party.
