The Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) on Friday described as fake, reports linking its candidate, Peter Obi to quitting the 2023 election.
NEWSBREAK reports that in a statement issued on Friday, the Obi- Datti Baba-Ahmed Campaign Media office, Labour Party said Obi is the man to beat at the coming poll.
“Nothing can be more absurd than the fact that 18 persons are in a marathon to pick a trophy and somebody is suggesting that the front runner in the race who is already sighting the trophy wants to step down for somebody behind.
“Since June 2022 when Obi emerged as the flag bearer of the Labour Party alongside other presidential contestants, the Labour Party and its presidential campaign have increased in leaps and bounds attracting both local and global attention.
“The truth is that Peter Obi’s performance is now the standard by which other contestants and their parties are being measured.
“The fact that the other parties struggle to associate their own candidates with Obi, even without his consent, says it all who should be associated with withdrawing or discontinuing in the race,” the statement partly reads.
