Labour Party currently has 0 elected public officer in the entire federation. Repeat: ZERO!
But once it’s confirmed that Peter Obi has joined them, it instantly becomes one of the big three! That’s how big the movement is. A good name is better than what? 🤣😁😂

Peter Obi has apparently joined Labour Party.
If or rather when he gets their ticket, the Party will witness a tremendous spike in votes garnered for the first time in their history.
He has automatically made them a force to reckon with, regardless of outcome.

How do we register online as a member of Labour Party. We’ll are definitely going into politics since some persons think Nigeria is their birthright.

Peter Obi may be joining the Labour Party. He may pick their ticket as well. If that happens, we will all Port with him. Wherever he goes, we follow. The PDP lost Peter Obi, Ike Ekweremmadu & Sen Abaribe, all in one day. This is how they rewarded the South East?
