2023 Presidential Race: Osun Guber Poll Can’t Deter Labour Party’s Growing Strength – Obi



By Praise Chinecherem

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 general elections, Peter Obi, has urged supporters of the “OBIdient movement” not to see the outcome of the Osun poll as a verdict on their exponentially growing strength nationwide.

Obi who stated this in his congratulatory message to the Governor-elect of Osun State, Ademola Adeleke, on his his victory in the Saturday governorship poll expressed joy over the political impact the party had made across the country.

Obi also hailed the LP governorship candidate in the State, Lasun Sulaimon Yusuf and his running mate Adeola Adekunle Atanda on what he called hard-fought battle.

He said, “I extend my warmest personal congratulations to Sen. Ademola Adeleke on wining the Osun State Gubernatorial election. I also congratulate the candidate of our Labour Party, Rt. Hon Lasun Sulaimon Yusuff and his running mate,  Adeola Adekunle Atanda, on  a hard- fought battle. Their spirit of reslove and sportsmanship, despite the outcome is commendable. 

“To our “Obidient Movement”  Family and our  supporters nationwide, the outcome of this particular election is not a verdict on our exponentially growing strength nationwide, especially when viewed against the fact that we are barely one month old in the party and had to contend with forces that have been entrenched in the state for the last two decades. 

“It is however refreshing to observe that within this very short period of only a few weeks, the Labour  Party has made its presence  and political impact felt nationally. We must strengthen our collective resolve and  not relent in our noble march to take back our country.  

“Much work remains to be done, hence we must focus the totality of our efforts now on the forthcoming 2023 General elections.  In the fullness of time, our message of rescue and recovery will resonate throughout the length and breath of the nation. 

“We are confident that most  Nigerian electorate will buy into our mission  to take back Nigeria, for the purpose of rescuing it from continued decline, changing the national psyche from consumption to production and from sharing dwindling resources to creating wealth and ultimately  combating poverty frontally.”
