Labour Party Presidential Candidate congratulates Osun State Governor-Elect


The Labour Party (LP) Presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has congratulated the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Osun State Governor-elect Ademola Adeleke on his victory at Saturday’s governorship election in the state.

Reacting to Adeleke’s victory in a statement on Sunday night, Mr. Obi, a former Governor of Anambra State, also congratulated the LP governorship candidate in the state, Lasun Yusuf.

He said, “I congratulate the Labour party candidate, Rt. Hon Lasun Sulaimon Yusuff and his running mate, Adeola Adekunle Atanda, for a hard-fought battle and their spirit of resolve and fair play, despite the outcome.”

Justifying the party’s performance, Mr. Obi said, “To the Obidient Movement Family and our supporters nationwide, the outcome of this election is not a verdict on our exponentially growing strength nationwide.

“Especially when viewed against the fact that we are barely one month old in the party and we had to contend with forces that have been entrenched in the state for the last two decades.

“However, within this very short period of only a few weeks, the Labour Party has felt made its presence and political impact relevant.

“We must strengthen our collective resolve not to relent in our noble march to take back our country.

“Much work remains to be done; hence we must focus the totality of our efforts now on the forthcoming 2023 General elections.

“In the fullness of time, our message of rescue and recovery will resonate throughout the length and breadth of the Nation.

“Most Nigerian electorate will buy into our mission to take back Nigeria and rescue it from continued decline.

“Shifting the National psyche from consumption to production and from sharing dwindling resources to creating wealth and frontally combating poverty.”
