The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, on Thursday endorsed former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi as the presidential candidate of the Labour Party for the 2023 general elections.

The NLC national president, Ayuba Wabba, in a statement, said both NLC and the Trade Union Congress, TUC, disowned Jude Ezenwafor as the factional presidential candidate of the party.

According to Mr Wabba, the labour unions only recognise the leadership of the party led by its national chairman, Barr. Julius Abure and national secretary, Farouk Umaru.

Mr Waba added that the recruitment of Calistus Okafor to advance their evil plot of distraction should be disregarded by the public.

“The NLC and TUC are aware of only one presidential primary which was held in Asaba, Delta State on 30th May 2022 and produced HE Peter Obi as its presidential candidate and standard-bearer.

“The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) monitored the presidential primary that produced HE Peter Obi.

“INEC recognizes only the Labour Party leadership led by the chairman, Barr Julius Abure and the national secretary, Alhaji Farouk Umaru Ibrahim; they are the only Labour Party officials whose details are provided on the INEC website.

“The leadership of the NLC and TUC gave our full support to the processes that produced HE Peter Obi as the presidential candidate of the Labour Party.

“Nigerians, especially workers, youths and women attended the presidential primary of the Labour Party in their thousands and were thoroughly satisfied with the outcome of the same.

“The recruitment of one Calistus Okafor, a mischievous petty trader, to advance their evil plot of distraction is a new low and should be disregarded by the public,” Mr Waba added.
