Peter Obi, Otti, lawmakers to lead Labour Party campaign in Ondo —

The Chairman of Labour Party (LP) Governorship Primaries in Ondo State, Mr Olusola Ayodele, said the party is prepared to take back the state in the governorship election.

Labour Party spokesperson in Ondo, Obiora Ifoh, quoted Olusola Ayodele to have made the declaration when he addressed the Southwest leadership of the party on Friday in Ibadan, Oyo State capital.
According to him, the Task Force being put together comprises key leaders of the party in the Southwest, who have been charged to mobilise a high-powered National Campaign Team of the Party for the Governorship elections to reenact the LP – Mimiko victory and eight years of good governance of Ondo State
“To lead the Ondo National campaign committee is Mr Peter Obi, Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party and Mr Alex Oti, Governor of Abia State,” he said.

“They are to be supported by all LP Senators, Reps Members, State Lawmakers and other key leaders of the Party in the country with formidable solidarity from key members of the Obidient Movement in diaspora.”
He clarified the rumour about the possibility of the party conducting a substitution primary for the Governorship candidacy of the party.

“This would only happen, if the current governorship candidate of the party decides to withdraw from the race during the substitution window created by INEC and if the National Working Committee, NWC of the Party also finds governorship aspirants who have the required competence and capacity as possible replacement to fly the governorship ticket of a mega party like the Labour Party, especially, a party which has ruled Ondo State for 8 years before,” Ayodele said.
Ayodele said some aggrieved frontline governorship aspirants, especially from the APC and PDP are already discussing the possibility of crossing to Labour Party.
He however applauded the youths, students and the masses of the people in Ondo State for remaining steadfast with the party.
