Labour Party Speaks On 2019 Elections

Labour Party (LP) on Friday urged Nigerians to show interest and fully partake in the 2019 general elections.

Director of Publicity and Media, Yinka Richards, in a statement made available to DAILY POST on Friday, re-emphasized the party’s position that Nigerian electorate must be given the right environment to elect candidates of their choice.

‘’Labour Party cannot be simplistic and attempt to wish away the issue of right candidates seeking elective positions at all levels, particularly as 2019 approaches’’, he said.

Richards noted that Labour Party would enjoy the support of Nigerian voters at the poll, “owing to the fact that the candidates of the party are more qualified and credible”

Speaking on the chances of the party, he confirmed that Labour party has forwarded names of its candidates and the chances are high in many states of the federation where those candidates are widely accepted by their people.

He said states like Kwara, Akwa-Ibom, Imo, Ogun, Delta, Benue, Abuja FCT, Abia, Enugu, Edo, Oyo, Anambra and Osun have already fielded influential candidates flying the party’s flag.

However, Richards advised Nigerians to be sensitive in their dealings with “political job seekers” who want to tarnish the image of the Labour Party.

His words: ‘’Labour Party is fully prepared for 2019 general elections and we want to urge Nigerian voters to distance themselves from some disgruntled politicians who lay claim to the leadership of the party.

“For instance, one Mike Omotosho who claimed to be the National Chairman of the party is a member of the APC and he is the deputy governorship candidate of the party in Kwara state.

“So, how on earth will a politician belong to two political parties at a time? Those types of people cannot be trusted. They are neither here nor there’’.
