Mr Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the last election, on Saturday stormed Benin, the capital of Edo state for the campaign flag-off of the party’s gubernatorial candidate, Barrister Olumide Akpata, and his deputy, Barr. Kadiri Asamah.

Obi’s presence is expected to galvanize support for the party’s candidates as they slug it out with the ruling Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress in the September 21 off cycle election.

The former governor of Anambra State in a post on his official Facebook page said the campaign flag-off is aimed to connect with the people and spread out the party’s message of hope and transformation for a new Nigeria.

He said, “Today, in Benin City, Edo State Capital, I joined the Labour Party gubernatorial candidate, Barrister @Olumide_Akpata, and his running mate, Alhaji Yusuf Kadiri, as they officially launched their campaign for the Edo State Governorship 2024 elections.

“Also with us were the National leadership of the Party, including Distinguished Senators, Neda Imasuen, Victor Umeh, Chief Kelvin Chukwu, and Dr Tony Nwoye, and our numerous LP members, and well-wishers.

“The campaign in Edo State, aimed to connect with the people and spread our message of hope and transformation for a new Nigeria. It started from our LP Gubernatorial candidate campaign Secretariat and concluded with a courtesy visit to the Palace of the Oba of Benin, where we sought royal blessings for free, fair, and credible elections and reaffirmed our commitment to Edo State’s welfare and prosperity.”
