Alexander Emmanuel, Labour Party (LP) chairman has announced that Peter Obi’s official presidential campaign will begin on October 18 in Nasarawa State.
Speaking at a press conference today, Thursday in Lafia, Alexander, said preparations for the drill have been completed.
He explained that the party chose Nasarawa for the presidential campaign kick-off because of the state’s support for its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, and Yusuf Ahmed-Datti his running partner.
He praised the party’s followers for their efforts in rallying support for the Obi/Datti ticket.
“Just like how other states of the country have been massively supporting the Labour party’s presidential candidate, Nasarawa State was the first to organize a street march in support of the Obi/Datti ticket.”
“And I think that should be the reason the LP’s national leadership chooses Nasarawa state for the campaign flag-off on October 18, 2022,” he said.
Meanwhile, he noted that he expected party supporters and other Nigerians from around the country to attend.
“So, I am urging everyone who has been yearning for a better Nigeria to come out in their numbers to welcome Obi and Datti to Lafia on Tuesday, Oct. 18,” he said.
