Peter Obi Joins Labour Party After PDP Exit


Former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi has formally joined the Labour Party days after announcing his resignation from the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party.

Peter Obi whose message has resonated very well with the youth who have since been routing vociferously for him while he was in the PDP is now expected to contest the presidential primary on the platform of his new party.

In a tweet Peter Obi said: “I thank all Nigerians, especially our youths who have joined me in the mission of taking back and reuniting Nigeria,” Obi said in an announcement on his verified Twitter handle.

“This project is yours and for the future of your children. I am just a facilitator.

“Since I resigned from the PDP because of issues that are at variance with my persona and principles, I have consulted widely with various parties and personalities to ensure we do not complicate the route to our desired destination.”


“For me, the process of achieving our goal is as fundamental as what one will do thereafter.

“Therefore, I have chosen a route that I consider to be in line with our aspirations and my mantra of taking the country from consumption to production; and that is the Labour Party which is synonymous with the people, workers, development, production, securing and uniting Nigerians as one family.
