Speaking at the inauguration, the Anambra state chairman of Labour Party, Hon. Emma Ugochukwu Emeh, congratulated members for being found worthy to work in the state's presidential campaign committee.
While warning that the forthcoming presidential election will not be business as usual, he observed that since Peter Obi hails from the state, all hands must be on deck to give him resounding victory - not just victory at the pools, but at least, 95% victory in the state.
He urged members of the committee to also reach out to members of other political parties in the state to woo them, and make sure that Obi is given his due honour by giving him as much as 95% of the total votes cast in the presidential election in Anambra.

Former commissioner for economic panning in Anambra, Prof. Stela Okunna, who also graced the occasion, noted that Peter Obi remains the only presidential candidate, who has what it takes to deliver Nigeria from its present sorry state.
She encouraged the campaign committee, and Nigerians by extension to turn out en-masse to support Obi and LP for the overall good of the country.
NLC backs Labour Party
Anambra state chairman of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Chinwe Orizu, said that NLC is solidly behind the candidature of Peter Obi. She said that NLC has confidence in the ability of Obi's government to bring glory and prosperity to Nigeria and Nigerians.
Earlier, while inaugurating the campaign committee, the South East Zonal Coordinator of the Obi/Datti presidential campaign committee, Ichie Damian Okeke Ogene, urged the committee to deliver results that would convince Nigerians that Peter Obi is truly from Anambra State.

Ogene, who is the national vice president of Ohaneze Ndigbo, also called on Nigerians to support Peter Obi's presidential aspiration; contending that since Igbo people all over Nigeria had been supporting other ethnic groups to emerge presidents over the years, they are now duty bound to support Nigerian president of Igbo extraction, as, according to him, this is the payback time for Igbo people.
He commended Afanifere, Middle Belt Forum, Arewa, Niger Delta, and others for endorsing Peter Obi, and urged them to walk their talk.
