Abure, who was represented by LP National Youth Leader Kennedy Ahanotu, said: “It was obvious and clear that the Labour Party had the best primaries in Edo State that produced Olumide Akpata.

As a matter of fact, the Labour Party is set to win Edo State.”

Abure urged supporters of the party to be united ahead of the 2027 general election. 

The national chairman of LP said the party was focused on taking back the country. 

He urged the ruling All Progressives Congress to “focus on providing the dividends of democracy to Nigerians.”

Abure said: “The ruling party should stop manipulating the Labour Party in a bid to silence our leaders. The ruling party should concentrate on delivering democratic dividends to citizens of Nigeria who are hungry and angry. 

We urge the law enforcement agencies to realise that a better Nigeria, which our party is pursuing, will also benefit them and their children and therefore, they should not be ready tools in the hands of those who have destroyed the foundation laid by our heroes past. 

“Let me also use this opportunity to call on all the Obidients world over to avoid every form of internal bickering and be united in the avowed pursuit of a better Nigeria, which is the ultimate goal of our struggle.

“I urge you all to reaffirm your commitment towards taking back our country, no matter the pressure, by supporting the party leadership.”
