  • The media arm of the organisation said the claim that Obi is withdrawing from the presidential poll is laughable

The Labour Party has denied the claim that its 2023 presidential candidate, Peter Obi, will be stepping down ahead of the poll.

ObiDatti organisation added that since Peter Obi's emergence as the presidential candidate of the LP in May 2022, the party and its presidential campaign have increased in leaps and bounds attracting both local and global attention.

It said:

“The truth is that Peter Obi’s performance is now the standard by which other contestants and their parties are being measured.
“The fact that other parties contesting for the president have been cloning the LP candidate in their corruptly induced gift items like bags of rice, posters and billboards speak volumes of who is the man to beat in this race.
“The fact that the other parties struggle to associate their own candidates with Obi even without his consent says it all who should be associated with withdrawing or discontinuing in the race.”
