LP welcomes religious leaders, seeks prayers for Obi/Datti victory


Some religious leaders, including Islamic clerics and bishops, visited the national headquarters of the Labor Party (LP) on Thursday, pledging their support for the party’s presidential candidate and his running mate.

Addressing members of the National Working Committee (NWC) headed by National Chairman, Barr Julius Abure, Sheikh Muhammad Murtala Muhammad, Head of the Islamic Delegation, said they rejected the APC’s Muslim/Muslim ticket because that he was not bringing peace and unity to a secular society like Nigeria.

In his speech, Archbishop Leonard Bature Kawas, leader of the Christian delegation, said it was unfair for Atiku Abubakar, a northern Muslim, to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari, another northern Muslim, after spending eight years as president.

He said the only balanced ticket for the 2023 general election is the LP ticket of Peter Obi and Datti Baba Ahmed, adding that Nigerians should line up behind the party to save the country from its current woes.

Addressing religious leaders, LP national chairman Barr Julius Abure said: “We are under attack, our supporters are under attack. We call on Nigerians and religious leaders to pray for us.

“Initially, they said that we had no structure. Now they saw that human beings are the structure. They didn’t take us seriously at first. Today, in their closet, they are discussing the Labor Party.
