The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi was recently on Arise TV News where he responded to some of the issues surrounding the forthcoming governoship election and the recently held presidential election.
During the program, he was asked of his take regarding the choice of some of his supporters (Obidients) who are not supporting members of the Labour Party in the governorship election. Reacting to the question, he stated that Obidients are not necessarily members of his party (the Labour Party) and he have many who believe in him but are not members of his party. He also stated that he's sure that there are people in Arise TV who believes in him but are not members of his party.
"I have people who are supporting me today as a presidential candidate who have nothing to do with Labour Party.
I have people like Atedo Peterside, I have many people who believe I can do this job, and I'm sure that there's so many of them in Arise who are not members of the Labour Party but they believe in what I'm doing so they have right to choose who they want to support because it's their choice."
