The campaign director of the Labour Party (LP) in Bauchi State Alhaji Alhassan Bawu has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Also on the move out of the party are other officials in the northeast with barely five weeks to the general elections, The Nation.
Bawu disclosed to reporters in Bauchi on Tuesday, January 31, 2023, that Peter Obi’s led party lacked structure in Bauchi is the reason for his defection alongside other officials to the PDP.
In his words:
“The LP is not strong and won’t be able to win a single seat in the region.
“We don’t want to waste our votes and we want to use this time to mobilize votes to who can win the election.”
Meanwhile, in another report, the Labour Party has denied the claim that Peter Obi will be stepping down ahead of the 2023 polls.
A statement by the media office of the ObiDatti Campaign Organisation said the report is laughable for someone who is leading the race to become Nigeria’s next president.
