Investigation revealed that there is more trouble for other political parties in one of the main states of the South-East as Women Group endorses Labour Party (LP) candidates in Anambra State.
According to reports, hundreds of people in the state are pledging to support the Obidient movement.
The support is not only for the presidential ambition of Mr. Peter Obi but also for all candidates on the platform of the Labour Party.
The dominance of Peter Obi’s supporters and the Obidient movement in Anambra state have continued to constitute a nightmare to candidates of the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the All Progressives Congress (APC) and other political parties in the state.
The women averred that they will support the Labour Party (LP) and its House of Representatives candidate for Idemili North and South Federal Constituency, Hon. Uchenna Okonkwo, during the February 25, 2023 general election in the state.
Investigation revealed that the endorsement took place in Ojoto, the headquarters of Idemili North LGA, during an annual meeting of the women’s group.
Leader of the women’s group, Mrs. Ify Okeke, noted that the Labour Party candidate has done so much for the people of Ojoto in the areas of infrastructural development, human capacity building, health care, among others, and therefore, merits total support of Umu Ada Ojoto; adding that if he could do this much as a private person, he would do better as a House of Representatives member.
Addressing the group, the Labour Party candidate, Hon. Okonkwo stated that he was contesting the election to have more channels to serve and bring dividends of democracy to the people of Idemili North and South.
He said that as a federal lawmaker, he would improve the health care system, education as well as small and medium enterprises to move the economy from consumption to production.
