- This disclosure was made by a member of the party's legal team, Joe-Oke Onuakalusi, who debunked the claim that the Labour Party is in disarray
- Onuakalusi noted that the suspension of Doyin Okupe, the director-general of ObiDatti Campaign Organisation by the Ogun state chapter of LP is laughable
The leadership of the Labour Party in Nigeria has said that the party's 2023 presidential candidate, Peter Obi, is coasting to victory.
Channels Television reports that a member of the party's legal team, Joe-Oke Onuakalusi, stated that Labour Party is optimistic it would win the presidential election with Peter Obi as its flag bearer.
Onuakalusi boast comes shortly after the Ogun state chapter party suspended the director-general of the ObiDatti Campaign Organisation, Doyin Okupe.
While the national body of the party has overruled the move by its Ogun chapter against Okupe, Onuakalusi assured that the LP's dispute is not enough to cause them a loss at the poll.

“You can understand that in Kenya, Ruto came on board just like Peter Obi is emerging and he won and is going to do excellently well,” he said on the show.
“So, we are bent on winning the 2023 election, and by the time Peter emerges come February 2023, we are putting Nigeria on the right track. We have the structure and the best hands and Peter is cruising to victory.”
Internal party crisis
Further stating the suspension of Okupe by his state chapter is an internal affair which is not peculiar to the Labour Party, Onuakalusi said only the presidential candidate of the party has the right to appoint his campaign DG.
“He (director general, in this case, Okupe) must not be a member of the party; being a member of the party is an addendum but it is the prerogative of the presidential candidate (Obi to appoint his DG),” Onuakalusi noted.
“So, it is laughable for a group of men to say, ‘We have expelled you from the party."
