•Aisha Yesufu endorses him as Nigeria’s next President
The Labour Party has issued former Anambra state governor, Mr Peter Obi, his certificate of return as the party’s flagbearer after his recent victory at the LP Presidential primary.
This is just as Human Rights Activist and co-convener of #BringBackOurGirls, Aisha Yesufu has endorsed him as Nigeria’s next president saying National Chairman of the party, Julius Abure, handed over the certificate to Obi at a ceremony at its National headquarters in Abuja, yesterday. While handing over the certificate, Abure described the ceremony as a milestone in the life of the party.
He said, “I said so because it is a new dawn for the people of this country. It is a new dawn because the people have been enslaved over the years and a new movement has begun that will liberate them from the slavery of hunger, poverty, employment, bad governance and insecurity in the land.
“Today we have started this movement and nothing, no amount of intimidation, no amount of pretence of factionalization, no amount of stopping us from registering or preventing us from participating in the ongoing voter registration will stop this movement.
“Wherever I have been to people have confronted me on how am I going to deliver Peter Obi since you have no structure and my response has always been that a people that have decided to liberate themselves you can never stop them.
