Obi won’t get Labour Party ticket in 2027
He said the Apapa faction would not allow rascality to continue in the party in 2027.
Arabambi disclosed that the Labour Party will present a new candidate in the 2027 presidential election.
“My advice is for him (Obi) to go and start preparing for 2027. But it has to be in another party, not in LP. We are not going to allow this kind of rascality to continue in 2027. We will look for a fresh candidate as far as we are concerned.
Why Obi lost 2023 presidential election
He alleged that Obi lost the 2023 presidential election because he is not a good manager and doesn’t believe in other people’s abilities.
“Obi is free to go back to APGA to run, not Labour Party. We don’t want to continue accommodating a character who believes no other person, other than himself, has anything upstairs. He is not a good manager of human resources. That was why he lost woefully.
