The national chairman, joined by members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party, including Prof. Pat Utomi, regarded as a democracy advocate, emphasized the urgency of their mission. He condemned what he claimed was the stolen mandate of the LP and stated, “They have taken what isn’t theirs, and having committed this injustice, they will face unrest. They won’t find tranquility until they return our mandate.”
Abure described the 2023 general election as a struggle to emancipate Nigeria from its pressing challenges. He drew attention to escalating insecurity, citing the daily loss of lives in states like Plateau and Benue, and heightened economic hardships. He critiqued the current administration’s performance, particularly in terms of fuel prices and the dollar-naira exchange rate, asserting that only the LP and Peter Obi have the solutions necessary to navigate these issues.
In his view, the LP’s participation in the 2023 election transformed Nigeria’s political landscape. Abure pointed out that despite initial underestimation, the party’s performance prompted opponents to channel resources towards unfavorable candidates, ultimately yielding unsuccessful results. He pledged the LP’s unwavering commitment to their cause, confident that the judiciary will deliver a fair verdict, leading to the formation of a government that truly represents the people’s interests.
Commending the Lagos State leadership, led by Pastor Dayo Ekong, Abure highlighted the party’s organizational strength. He refuted claims of lacking structure, citing their successful demonstration of organizational prowess. He further lauded the leadership’s coherent direction and expressed optimism about a brighter future for the party.
As the Labor Party persists in its mission, Abure’s remarks underscore the party’s determination to navigate Nigeria towards a new trajectory under the leadership of figures like Peter Obi. Amidst evolving political dynamics, their resolve signals a continued drive for meaningful change and an enduring commitment to the aspirations of the Nigerian people.
