Ahead of the Saturday gubernatorial and state assembly elections, the Ebonyi State chapter of the Labour Party has endorsed the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru.

Nwifuru is the anointed candidate of the incumbent governor, Dave Umahi who is expected to leave office in May 2023.

In a communique issued by the Ebonyi State Labour Party chairman, Godwin Jioke, the party explained that it does not have any candidate in the governorship race owing to “protracted legal tussles.”

The party called on its supporters and all Obidients across the state to come out en masse and vote for the APC candidate on Saturday.

It, however, noted that the decision does not in any way translate to collapsing of its structure into the ruling party.

Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi, has expressed confidence that he will be declared winner of the February 25, 2023 presidential election.

According to Obi, he has confidence in Nigeria’s judiciary despite the controversy around their rulings on some matters.

Obi speaking as a guest at the Channels Television’s Sunrise Programme on Thursday, said that his confidence is drawn from the fact that the justices are Nigerians and are aware of how bad the situation has been in the country and only truth and justice will save this country.

The National Population Commission has said the 2023 planned census is not ethnic or politically motivated.

The Ogun State Federal Commissioner of the NPC, Seyi Aderinokun, who was represented by the NPC state director, Olushola Adeleye, said this on Thursday during a one-day capacity building workshop for journalists.

 The workshop was aimed at training journalists in effective and efficient reporting of the 2023 population and housing census.

She stated, “We are not a political organisation. We have a responsibility to conduct census; it is a research that is meant to generate data for economic planning. We are not ethnic or politically related or motivated.”
