The Labour Party is hopeful for a successful outing on March 18.

In states where the Labour Party, LP, had significant success at the presidential and National Assembly elections, there is anxiety ahead of the rescheduled governorship and state assembly elections.

The major parties, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC), are in a panic mode as a result of the concern, which is based on the potential of a recurrence of LP's success at the polls. According to Sunday Vanguard, the results this Saturday may not be favorable to the major parties and their candidates if the voting patterns seen at the polls hold true. Based on its results, LP anticipates a successful outing at the exercise on March 18.

Although losing the election, Mr. Peter Obi, the party's presidential candidate, received the majority of the votes in 12 states, including Lagos and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). At least 12 gubernatorial seats are what the LP, supported by the Obidient Movement, hopes to secure on Saturday.

Bola Tinubu of the APC was declared the victor of the presidential election on March 1, 2023, with 8.79 million votes, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC. Obi finished in second place with 6.1 million votes.

Obi later filed a lawsuit challenging the results, alleging rigging, suppression, disenfranchisement, and manipulation of the voting process.

The former governor of Anambra State, who was mocked as the "social media president" without any organization to win elections, astounded his detractors.

Many people held the opinion that Obi could not win a local government election outside of Anambra State, much less a presidential election, similar to Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar.

Lagos, Enugu, Nasarawa, Ebonyi, Abia, Delta, Anambra, Plateau, FCT, Edo, Cross River, and Imo are among the states the LP won.
