Finally, Peter Obi joins Labour Party

By Ihechi Enyinnaya

Former Anambra state governor, Peter Obi, has officially joined the Labour Party as he is expected to fly on their presidential ticket.

Mr. Peter Obi registered as a member of the party on Friday morning in his ward in Agulu, Anambra State.

His move to the Labour Party came after his team rejected the Vice Presidential offer from Kwakwanso’s NNPP.

While quitting PDP, he said “recent developments” within the Peoples Democratic Party were responsible for his resignation from the opposition party and withdrawal from its presidential primary slated for end of May.
Obi was one of the 15 PDP presidential aspirants cleared by the Senator David Mark-led Presidential Screening Committee last month.
However, the ex-governor, in a statement addressed to the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, explained that the recent developments won’t make it possible for him to make “constructive contributions”.
The letter was titled, ‘Resignation From Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Withdrawal from the Presidential Contest’.
