The Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has asked his supporters and party members in Cross River State to vote for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, Sandy Onor, in the Saturday’s polls.

Obi is a Labour Party member who dumped PDP to have a chance to contest the presidential election.

During a live interview on a local TV station, Obi said the Labour Party would partner some governorship candidates in some states for the polls.

“There are some states where my party, LP, doesn’t have candidates, and we are partnering some good candidates in those states to ensure victory for them. We have good candidates in Lagos, Delta, Plateau, Nasarawa, Enugu, Abia, and a few others. But in Cross River, we have agreed to align with the PDP and its candidate, Prof Sandy Onor,” the former PDP member explained.

He added, “He is a very good candidate who enjoys strong support from the people. I urge all ‘Obidients’ in Cross River to support and cast their votes for Prof Onor, who is a current senator.”
