The Labour Party, LP, 2023 presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has threatened to dump the party ahead of the 2027 general election following the ongoing crisis.

Obi said he won’t die while trying to change LP, hence his decision to leave if the party’s crisis can’t be resolved.

The Labour Party has been involved in a leadership and ownership crisis lately.

Julius Abure and Apapa Lamidi have been struggling over the position of the party’s National Chairmanship.

Also, the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, has been claiming ownership of LP.

Amid this battle of supremacy, Abure was reelected in a controversial national convention organized in Anambra State

However, Obi while featuring on an X space hosted by Parallel Facts, Obi said, “Our engagement is about Nigeria, they are trying to change our focus. What we want to do is not about the Labour Party; it is about what the Obidients want to do about Nigeria.

“We are thinking about water, we are thinking about power, we are thinking about employment, thinking about security. That should be our focus.

“The other matter we will deal with. We were somewhere, we didn’t start with Labour.

I’m a Christian. Jesus said, When you go into a city, try to change them, live with them, fast with them. in the end, if you can’t,come out and even wash the sand that is on your shoes.

“He didn’t say go there and die with them. I tell you, I’m making spirited efforts to change them (LP), but I’m not going to die with them.

“That will not stop what we set out to do. We will try to change them (LP), if we can’t, we will leave them; we will not die with them.”
