The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi,has acknowledged that there are “some omissions and misplacement of some names in the Presidential Campaign Council List.
Obi has promised that the list which has stirred controversies among supporters and opposition will be corrected and a supplementary list released before the inauguration of the Council.
The Labour party disclosed this in a statement released at the end of its expanded National Working Committee (NWC) meeting in Abuja on Thursday.
Also,to be corrected, is the inclusion of NCfront, NLC and TUC members in the Campaign list.
“Labour Party is fully ready, and all parameters to prosecute the election in 2023 have been put in place and as of the moment, we are consolidating the momentum that will help us establish a new Nigeria come May 29th 2023. We also further make it clear that Labour Party enjoys a robust relationship with the new Campaign Council.”
However, in a series of tweet, Peter Obi pleaded for the peoples patience, admitting that the List will be updated soon.
“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,” he wrote.
“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.”
