Recall that Peter Obi had apologised to supporters and Nigerians over omissions made in appointments of members of the party’s Campaign Council and promised that it would be resolved within the next few days.
Obi made this known on Friday, via his verified Twitter handle and assured that the presidential campaign council list would be reviewed.
He pleaded with supporters to exercise patience while the review of the campaign council list is being carried out.
His words, “I’ve received several calls of concern following the release of the Labour Party’s Presidential Campaign Council list. Admittedly, there were some omissions and erroneous entries in the list, hence the concerns expressed.
“In response,the Labour Party Chairman in the presence of members of the NWC addressed the issues during a press conference. In keeping with our commitment to accountability, responsiveness and transparency, an updated list will be issued in due course. I plead for patience.”
The list of the 1,234 members of the Obi-Datti 2023 presidential campaign team was presented by the Labour Party at an event on Wednesday in Abuja.
It is believed that the slight adjustments in timetable would allow LP reflect the corrections as promised by its presidential candidate.
