The southwest chapter of the Labour Party (LP) has reportedly defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Motoso Banji, who is the leader of the party’s southwest chapter, led a delegation of party leaders to Akure ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
It is understood that other party chieftains including Omowumi Olosola, the Ondo Secretary of LP, and Sola Alabi, amongst others, renounced their allegiance and pledged their loyalty to the APC.
On the other hand, analysts have predicted that if the voter turnout exceeds 60%, LP’s presidential candidate still holds a chance at winning the elections.
According to findings, the LP are the strongest in the Southeast, some parts of the North-central and the Southwest but the reports says that Obi’s main strength and support he gets from the Nigerian youths.
Seventy percent of the youth are among the registered voters, which could be vital to Obi winning the presidential election as an underdog.
