I’m Not Going To Die With Them – Peter Obi Speaks On Dumping Labour Party

Labour Party’s 2023 presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi, has suggested that he might leave the party if the ongoing crisis within it persists.

Obi believes the turmoil within the party has been deliberately caused to divert attention away from important national issues, which he is committed to addressing.

The Labour Party has faced various challenges such as financial mismanagement, leadership disputes, and calls for the chairman’s resignation since last year’s election.

Peter Obi’s absence from the recent convention in Anambra State has fueled speculation about his possible defection.

Despite the obstacles, Obi remains focused on his goals and assured his supporters during a recent interactive session that they are not swayed by the tactics of their opponents.

Obi said, “Our engagement is about Nigeria, they are trying to change our focus. What we want to do is not about Labour Party; it is about what the Obidients want to do about Nigeria.

“We are thinking about water, we are thinking about power, we are thinking about employment, thinking about security. That should be our focus.

“The other matter we will deal with. We were somewhere, we didn’t start with Labour.

“I’m a Christian. Jesus said, When you go into a city, try to change them, live with them, fast with them. in the end, you can’t, come out and even wash the sand that is on your shoes.

“He didn’t say go there and die with them. I tell you, I’m making spirited efforts to change them (LP), but I’m not going to die with them.

“That will not stop what we set out to do. We will try to change them (LP), if we can’t, we will leave them; we will not die with them.”
