Labour Party Postpones Presidential Rallies In Ekiti, Ondo

The Presidential Campaign Council of the Labour Party has announced the postponement of the campaign rally which it earlier scheduled to hold in Ekiti and Ondo states today. 

In a terse statement that was made available to Africa Today News, New York, the party blamed unavoidable and unusual circumstances beyond its control for the sudden postponement.

The LP, however, assured its supporters of their plans to announce new dates for its rally in the states.

The statement read, ‘Due to some unavoidable and unusual circumstances beyond control, our earlier scheduled presidential campaign rally in Ekiti and Ondo for 15th and 16th December 2023 are hereby postponed. A new date will be announced. We regret the inconvenience caused by this.’

Africa Today News, New York reports that this is coming a day after its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, and his running mate, Baba Ahmed-Datti, moved their campaign train to Kogi State.

Since the October 18 commencement of rallies by the LP, the party has not been consistent with its schedule.

The rally held in Kogi on Tuesday had been announced to hold on October 23. Other rallies scheduled for October that failed to hold included the ones meant for Niger, Kwara, Bayelsa, Rivers, and Cross River.

The party has also failed to stage the rallies scheduled for November in Kaduna, Kano, Jigawa, Katsina, and Sokoto states.

In another report, the inclusion of women and Persons Living With Disabilities in governance in 2023 took the centre stage in Abuja on Wednesday as presidential candidates of some political parties tabled their agenda before a coalition of civil society organisations and international partners.

Among them were the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi; the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, Rabiu Kwankwaso and the presidential candidate of the Accord Party, Prof. Christopher Imumolen.

But the presidential candidates of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, were absent.

They made the pledges while signing the Governance Agenda for an Inclusive Nigeria document.
