The Labour Party (LP) is equal to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC), “if not even worse than the two others put together,” according to Accord Party (AP) presidential candidate Prof. Christopher Imumolen, ahead of next month’s general election.
During a recent Twitter Spaces session led by Japheth Omojuwa, Imumolen declared. The candidate expressed sadness that his party’s performance was even poorer than that of the APC and PDP, calling Peter Obi, the LP’s presidential candidate, a great man who has done well for himself.
Instead, the AP presidential candidate asserted that he is the only person who can “transform the country and make Nigeria the giant of the globe” and that he will lead an inclusive administration. I have the motivation, conviction, and frame of mind to alter the narrative of Nigeria.
He asked the Labour Party to reevaluate its philosophies, claiming that the LP is a more corrupt, directionless, and troublesome political party than the coalition of the APC and PDP, which has held federal power for 24 years.
According to him, “We don’t buy the ideologies of APC or PDP. Anyone who is in either of these parties can’t change the country because they are a part of the problem as it were.
“Peter Obi of the Labour Party is a fine man who has done well for himself. But he is in a party that has done even worse than APC and PDP. That is the problem.
“The Labour Party is even worse than the aforementioned two. That is why the party is having a series of issues. So, you have a fine man in a bad political party. Mention one party that is having issues of suspension…suspending their youth leader.
“Peter Obi is an okay man, but he’s in a political party that is not okay. Labour Party as we speak now, is more corrupt and has more problems than APC and PDP.”
Imumolen added that: “For Labour Party, the last Anambra State gubernatorial candidate in the last election, are you aware that the candidate was kidnapped on the eve of the election? Till today, he has not been seen.
“So you can see that the party has some elements of people that are not after elections, they are after something else. Obi should be very careful. I am telling you. I was there, but I had to leave.
When it comes to monetisation, they are even worse.
“The party that cannot deliver that change that Nigeria wants. We have to look at that because no one man can fix this nation.”
