Political elders from Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra State have pledged their commitment to commence victory grassroots mobilisation and campaign for the Labour Party (LP) Presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi and other candidates of the party in the State ahead of 2023 general elections.

He announced that members of the group cut across political parties.

He said, “With Peter Obi’s unique leadership qualities, it was important members of the group take to streets, market squares, worshipping Centers, village squares, LGAs Headquarters and states across the country in sensitising and educating Nigerians on why the likes of the former Anambra State Governor, Mr. Obi, deserves to rule Nigeria.

“We will be working across the 181 communities in the state, to garner support for Obi’s Presidential victory and ensure Nigerians see reasons why he deserves to rule the country.”

Speaking also, Sen. Victor Umeh said those speculating that the structure of the LP Presidential Candidate for the election ends only on social media were even helping to project the party and its candidate the more for landslide victory.

“At the moment, no political party in Nigeria has a kind of structure the LP has for the election. Nigerians, especially, the youths irrespective of ethnic, political and religion affiliations, are all out to vote Mr. Obi as the next President of Nigeria,” he said.

Umeh urged the group not to allow any selfish politicians to influence them with any kind gesture that would create division among them.
