Outcome of Osun election not a verdict on our exponentially growing strength nationwide – Peter Obi


…Congratulates Ademola Adeleke, Yusuf Lasun

Contrary to insinuations in some quarters, the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 Presidential election, Mr. Peter Obi has said that the outcome of the just concluded Osun Governorship election is not a verdict on the exponentially growing strength of the the Labour Party nationwide.

Obi who made his position on the Osun Governorship election known in a statement on Monday said that this was so especially when viewed against the fact that they were barely one month old in the (Labour) party and had to contend with forces that had been entrenched in the state for the last two decades.

He added that it was, however, refreshing to observe that within the very short period of only a few weeks, the Labour Party had made its presence and political impact felt nationally.

“We must strengthen our collective resolve and not relent in our noble march to take back our country.

“Much work remains to be done, hence we must focus the totality of our efforts now on the forthcoming 2023 General elections. In the fullness of time, our message of rescue and recovery will resonate throughout the length and breath of the nation.

“We are confident that most Nigerian electorates will buy into our mission to take back Nigeria for the purpose of rescuing it from continued decline, changing the national psyche from consumption to production and from sharing dwindling resources to creating wealth and ultimately combating poverty frontally”, he said.

While extending his “warmest personal congratulations to Sen. Ademola Adeleke on wining the Osun State Gubernatorial election”, he also congratulated the candidate of the Labour Party, Rt. Hon Lasun Sulaimon Yusuf and his running mate, Adeola Adekunle Atanda “on a hard- fought battle. Their spirit of resolve and sportsmanship despite the outcome is commendable.”
