The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate in the 2023 general election, Mr. Peter Obi, has congratulated the winner of Osun State governorship election, Senator Ademola Adeleke, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He also congratulated the candidate of the Labour Party, Hon Lasun Sulaimon Yusuff, and his running mate, Adeola Adekunle Atanda, for a hard fought battle and their spirit of reslove and sportsmanship, despite the outcome.
In a statement issued by his media team on Monday, Obi commended the LP members and supporters for putting a good fight in the Osun State governorship election despite the short time the party had to prepare for it.
His words: “To our Obidient Movement Family and our supporters nationwide, the outcome of this particular election is not a verdict on our exponentially growing srtength nationwide especially when viewed against the fact that we are barely one month old in the party and we had to contend with forces that have been entrenched in the state for the last two decades.
“However, within this very short period of only a few weeks, the Labour Party has made its presence and political impact felt nationally. We must strengthen our collective resolve not relent in our noble march to take back our country.
“Much work remains to be done, hence we must focus the totality of our efforts now on the forthcoming 2023 general elections. In the fullness of time, our message of rescue and recovery will resonate through out the length and breath of the nation and most Nigerian electorate will buy in into our mission to take back Nigeria, for the purpose of rescuing it from continued decline, shift the national psyche from consumption to production and from sharing dwindling resources to creating wealth and frontally combating poverty.”
