The Labour Party and Peter Obi have, since the beginning of the presidential election campaign, continued to ride on the goodwill of Nigerian youths who have volunteered to campaign for the LP candidate with their resources, spending hours on social media and making themselves available at rallies without being hired, unlike what used to be the case during campaigns.
