According to Senator Gabriel Suswam, a former governor of Benue State and senator for the Benue North East senatorial district, if the Labour Party can repeat its success from the recently held general elections in 2023, it will change the future of Nigeria's political landscape.
Senator Gabriel Suswam said in an interview with Focus Nigeria regarding the Labour Party's performance,
"The invasion of the Labour Party came as a complete surprise. Unfortunately, contrary to what happened in the presidential election, people had anticipated that Labour would be able to pick up five or more governors. Instead, they have only succeeded in gaining one governor.
Therefore, if what happened with Labour continues, I think that the dynamics of Nigerian politics will be completely different. Labour has demonstrated to Nigerians that it is possible to have someone emerge who will win this election, much like Obama did in America, without necessarily having the so-called structure that we politicians take pride in.
The Labour Party lacked the organisational framework that would have allowed them to execute at that level. Yet, almost everyone was taken aback by the performance.
