The Director General of Peter Obi/Yusuf Datti Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) of the Labour Party, (LP), Mr Akin Osuntokun, has said that the coming elections would determine whether Nigerians are actually ready to change their destiny, and chart a new course.
He said this at the weekend in Ado-Ekiti, while addressing party supporters from across the 16 Local Governments, at a Town Hall Meeting, held in the town.
The former Presidential Adviser, assured Nigerians that Peter Obi’s emergence as the next Nigeria president would put an end to all the agonies they are facing as a result of uncaring leadership.
Osuntokun enjoined all Labour Party members across the country, as well as agents, to build on the current tempo of mobilisation for Peter Obi, assuring that the presidential candidate of the party would speedily address all challenges facing the country.
He said familiar problems, such as unemployment, insecurity, hunger, scarcity of money, high cost of fuel, high cost of food, incessant strikes, among several others would become history.
Also speaking, the State Chairman of Labour Party, Mr Odunayo Okunade, said the LP would rule Nigeria and promote family values according to the dictates of its logo.
He noted that LP is the only party in the country that has respect for lives and wellbeing of Nigerians, and would therefore not let Nigerians down with it’s human face
Earlier, the Presidential Campaign Coordinator in Ekiti, Mr Moses Jolayemi, urged voters to troop out on Saturday to elect Obi and his vice as the next President and Vice President of Nigeria, assuring them that the candidates and the party would not renege on promises made to them.
He asked party members and agents to start moving from house to house, and canvas for the emergence of Obi for a new Nigeria.
He assured that Obi would win Saturday’s election landslide, and advised Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC ) to guide against manipulation of Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) by enemies of progress within and outside of the Commission
” It is crystal clear that Peter Obi will win the coming election in a free, fair exercise, especially if INEC do not compromise the use of BIVAS
” If BVAS is allowed to work, we will have credible, violence free election, because if you look at the configuration of BVAS from the point of voting, collation and announcement of results, there is no much of human intervention, with this, hence, Peter Obi is the next President”
Commenting on the logjam that greeted recent cashless policy of Central Bank, the Ekiti PCC Coordinator said labour party was on the same page, but condemned the hasty manner of its implementation.
