Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party, has declared that saving Nigeria is a responsibility he is personally and fully committed to taking on.
Obi, who virtually addressed the meeting of the Labour Party National Working Committee, State Chairmen, and Senatorial candidates, urged all the members present to do what they can individually and collectively to make all necessary sacrifices to ensure that the party wins the general elections of 2023.
“We in LP are one family now; we will remain so during the campaign and after we win the elections. I assure you that no one will be left behind, Obi said.
He expressed regret for not physically attending the meeting but acknowledged that the strategy discussion should have taken place before the start of the election campaigns.
He explained, “Due to the sympathy I have for ASUU and the strike that has kept our children out of school for the past seven months, I could not fly to Abuja.
“ASUU strike and the many other problems confronting Nigeria must compel us to reassert or resolve to ensure that there is leadership change in Nigeria come 2023.
“Even though the Labour Party is by far smaller than the other major parties, our party now carry the burden of salvaging Nigeria on her shoulders. My personal commitment to that Mission is total.
