Presidential Poll: APC already Preparing for Re-run — LP

By Suoyo Ekubo 

The National Chairman of the Labour Party, Mr. Julius Abure, has urged its members to prepare for 2027 Presidential Poll, following information that President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led government is getting set for a rerun.

Speaking during a virtual meeting held with Nigerian-American Coalition for Justice and Democracy led by Prof. Eddie Oparaoji, who is the Lap Diaspora Chairman in the United States, on Monday, July 10, Abure said members of the party should get ready to “further humiliate” APC and its government at the polls.

In his words, “Those in government are already planning for rerun and this is one of the support we will be canvasing from you. We should also be getting prepared because since all those in government are already preparing for rerun we too should not be taken unawares.

“So we will be needing your engagement and support on this aspect if par adventure it happens today, that the election is nullified which is not what we are asking for, because we are asking for outright declaration of Peter Obi as the President of Nigeria.

“We believe strongly that we won that election given the statistics we have, given the result we have, we are not expecting anything less than the declaration of Peter Obi as the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. But supposing that didn’t happen as the government is believed to be planning for a rerun, it will not also be out of place for we to be preparing for a rerun election.”

According to Lindaikejiblog, a statement released after the meeting by the party’s Acting National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, read;

“Rumours have it that those in government are already planning for rerun and this is one of the support we will be canvasing from you. We should also be getting prepared because since all those in government are already preparing for rerun, we should not be taken unawares.

“So, we will be needing your engagement and support on this aspect if par adventure it happens today, that the election is nullified which is not what we are asking for because we are asking for an outright declaration of Peter Obi as the President.
