Despite pressure, Obi won’t leave Nigeria — LP

The Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council has insisted that the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, won’t leave Nigeria despite pressure being mounted on him to do so.

The PCC claimed that the pressure being mounted on the former Anambra State governor from some quarters was the handiwork of mischief makers who were bent on derailing Obi from pursuing justice through the court.

Obi had on Wednesday said he was being pressured to leave the country with attacks against his person emanating from different quarters.

Obi, in a statement on Wednesday night on his Twitter handle, also added that the leaked audio conversation between himself and the Founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo, was doctored and fake.

But in a statement on Thursday night by the Chief Spokesperson, Obi-Datti Campaign Council, Dr. Tanko Yunusa, the council maintained that Obi had no intention to leave the country, irrespective of the pressure on him and his family.

The statement read, “Most unfortunately, in the past few weeks, Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate in the February 25, 2023 presidential election, has been contacted by associates, elder statesmen, family and friends with concerns for his personal safety.

”These concerns have increased intensely in the last few days as immense pressure has been mounted directly on Obi to leave the country, no doubt, from sources allied to the APC and its agents in the security services.
