Peter Obi, Labour Party presidential candidate in the 2023 election, has reacted to the controversy surrounding the list of members of his campaign council.
Mixed reactions have continued to trail the inclusion of Major-General John Enenche, the former Army spokesperson, and other individuals on the list.
Enenche had described the event of October 20, 2020, at the Lekki tollgate and the killing of #EndSARS protesters at the venue as fake news adding that the pictures were photoshopped.
This sparked reactions on social media with Nigerians calling for his removal from the campaign council.
Reacting to the situation, Obi said some names were erroneously added to the list.
The former Anambra state governor urged Nigerians to expect an updated campaign council list.
“I’ve received several calls of concern following the release of the Labour Party’s Presidential Campaign Council list. Admittedly, there were some omissions and erroneous entries in the list, hence the concerns expressed,” Obi said via a series of tweets.
“In response, the Labour Party Chairman in the presence of members of the NWC addressed the issues during a press conference. In keeping with our commitment to accountability, responsiveness and transparency, an updated list will be issued in due course. I plead for patience. -PO”
Obi and his vice, Datti Baba-Ahmed, were absent during the unveiling of the campaign council on Wednesday.
