…As PDP Aguata collapses structure for Peter Obi, Labour Party
Valentine Ozigbo, the Special Adviser to the Labour Party’s Presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi, on Technology and Strategic Alliances, has charged the people of Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State to come out in high numbers to vote for all Labour Party candidates in Saturday’s general election.
Mr Ozigbo made the call on Thursday, February 23, 2023, at a town hall meeting for political leaders and stakeholders in Aguata LGA held at his country home in Amesi, Aguata LGA, where it was also announced that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Aguata has collapsed its structure into the Labour Party.
While addressing the large gathering, Ozigbo made a case for the Labour Party candidates for Chief Andy Azike, the party’s candidate for the Federal House of Representatives for Aguata Federal Constituency, and Chief Obinna Uzor, the party’s Senatorial Candidate for Anambra South Senatorial District.
The Peoples Democratic Party’s chapter in Aguata also announced the collapse of its structure for Peter Obi and the Labour Party. Speaking on behalf of the party, Nonso Okeke, the Chairman of the PDP in Aguata LGA, said that the Obidient spirit has “swept across Anambra, and the PDP has been swept away”.
“We have no choice but to follow our leader, Valentine Ozigbo (VCO) and collapse the entire structure of the Peoples Democratic Party into the Labour Party. We are 100% for His Excellency Peter Obi and the Labour Party,” Okeke declared as he thanked Ozigbo for his “brilliant and exemplary leadership”.
In an impassioned speech, the 2021 A elaborated on the importance of voting for Labour Party candidates across the board, pointing out the need to secure “inevitable” Peter Obi’s presidency by voting for the party’s candidates at all levels, especially as they share the same values and ideals, and will ensure that every member of society feels governance.
“We are 48 hours away from the most historic election in Nigeria’s history, and we must be prepared to do what it takes to secure our future and legitimately deliver Aguata LGA to the Labour Party,” Ozigbo remarked.
“His Excellency Peter Obi is the gold standard for Nigerian politicians. Now is the time for us to put our foot down and install competent, compassionate and committed leaders that share the same vision and passion for bettering the lives of Nigerians.
“We cannot allow Peter Obi’s presidency to be hampered by retrogressive elements who will frustrate efforts to improve our standard of living.
“This is not the time for grandstanding or sitting on the fence; this is the time to make our voices heard clearly through the ballot.
“Ndi Aguata, Chief Andy Azike and Chief Obinna Uzor are our brothers who have attained excellence in their chosen fields of endeavours without any untoward report of misappropriation of funds or abuse of office. These are the quality of individuals we should be voting into the office to shore up His Excellency Peter Obi’s government.
“Anything short of this will hamper the massive revolution we yearn for and deprive the people of Aguata of the dividends of democracy we earnestly desire.
“So I urge you all to come out in full force on Saturday, February 25, 2023, armed with your Permanent Voters Card (PVC). Vote for Labour Party in all of the elections and let us take back Nigeria,” Ozigbo, a global CEO who is the immediate past President and Group CEO of Transcorp Plc, added.
