LP speaks on being represented at political parties’ meeting with Obasanjo

The Labour Party, LP, has debunked reports that it was among 35 political parties which met with former president Olusegun Obasanjo and other political leaders in Lagos.

It stressed that it had no representative at the said meeting.

LP described itself as a party held in trust for the generality of the Nigerian people.

Obasanjo recently met with about 35 political parties under the aegis of the Coalition for New Nigeria.

Co-Chairman of the Nigerian Intervention Movement, Mr. Olisa Agbakoba SAN, who confirmed the meetings with Obasanjo, disclosed that they would continue to hold meetings with Obasanjo in exploring the right options to overthrow APC and PDP come 2019.

But in a statement issued on Tuesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Ebere Ifendu, Labour Party asserted that it had no association with the Obasanjo-promoted Coalition for Nigeria Movement in respect to the 2019 general elections.

The statement reads in part, “We categorically declare our inclusion as false, Labour Party had no representatives in the said meeting and has no association with the coalition for Nigeria Movement in respect to the 2019 general elections. We are not part of any political merger.

“We also enjoin our media friends to endeavor to confirm such stories or any other sensitive information from the official spokesperson of the party before going to the press.

“Our party is currently repositioning for the onerous task of presenting Nigeria with a better alternative to the present government that has not satisfied the yearnings of the majority of the people.”
