Imo Guber: Don’t Undermine ‘Obidients’ Support For Athan Achonu In November Polls – Labour Party

The Labour Party (LP) has warned other political parties in Imo State not to undermine the support of the ‘Obidients family’ for the party’s governorship candidate in the state, Athan Achonu.

The party called on other parties to be mindful of the fact that Achonu is the only candidate the Labour Party has in the forthcoming November 11 governorship election that is happening in three states, Kogi, Bayelsa and Imo.

CrudePen gathered the Labour Party made this known on Tuesday in Abuja at a joint briefing organised by the Chief spokesperson, Obi Datti, Presidential Campaign Council, Dr Tanko Yunusa, the party’s National Youth Leader, Prince Kennedy Ahanotu, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh.

The Labour Party chieftains said the influence of loyalists of the party’s flag bearer, Peter Obi, should not be underestimated in the November 11 polls in Imo State.

Recall that recently, Obi had flagged off the governorship campaign of Senator Athan Achonu in Owerri, Imo State capital.

Speaking further, they said, “Those present at the flag-off ceremony were many other leaders of the party as well as the Obedient family, including the Abia State governor, Dr Alex Otti, members of the National Working Committee (NWC) and National Assembly members, including various stakeholders and party members.

“At the function, our principal called on all the Obedient family members in Imo State to file behind the Labour Party candidate, Senator Achonu. He also said that Achonu stands tallest among other candidates in the contest, having developed a programme well suited for Imolites, which will end hunger, insecurity and unemployment, which is very prevalent in the state under the current leadership.

“Senator Achonu has been cleared by the National Executive Council (NEC) of the party to fly its flag. His nomination has since been adopted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), and the courts in the land, including the Supreme Court, have given recognition to Senator Achonu’s candidacy.”
