The presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 elections, Peter Obi, has spoken amidst the report alleging he was in talks with Atiku Abubakar and Rabiu Kwankwaso for a possible merger to wrest power from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
It was reported that the trio were looking at the possibility of an alliance that would enable them to present a formidable stand against the APC.
Speaking at a mega rally in Edo State on Monday ahead of the local government elections in the state, the former governor of Anambra State told hundreds of party supporters that some of the things they hear everywhere were rumours.
He further assured the supporters of his commitment to the Labour Party.
“Labour Party will continue to grow. We will continue to go stronger (and) better. Half of the things you are hearing everywhere are rumours, don’t listen to them. We are committed to building a better and a new Nigeria where we will move Nigeria from consumption to production,” Obi said to loud cheers from the crowd.
