Labour Party reacts to possibility of Peter Obi joining Tinubu’s government The Labour Party has reacted to speculations that it’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, may join Tinubu’s government in the coming weeks.

The Labour Party noted that there is no way Obi could be tempted to work with President Tinubu’s government of national unity. The position of the party was stated in two separate interviews with its national publicity secretary, Obiora Ifoh and the national legal adviser, Kehinde Edun.

The party’s position is coming six days after the former Anambra State governor shaded the president on Arise TV’s ‘Morning Show’ following the controversy surrounding his academic records at Chicago State University.

Obi stated that any leader who falsifies his credentials or age cannot be trusted to do the right thing and is unfit to lead the people.

“If you look at what is happening in Nigeria today, there are so many issues of certificates, age, and all sorts of one falsification or the other with the leaders. There is no way people can do this and be able to do the right thing. That means they are living a falsified life,” Obi said.

A few days after Obi’s scathing remark, his party also admonished the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, not to drag him into his feud with the president. 

The party was reacting to an earlier call by Atiku, for Obi and Rabiu Kwankwaso to join his crusade in exposing the alleged dirty secrets of the president. The reaction of was seen by some people as a possibility that Obi would prefer to work with Tinubu than team up with his former PDP ally, Atiku.

He said, “I think Obi has something he is pursuing, especially when we are sure we won the election. So it will be out of place for us to now say we want to work with this government. As far as LP is concerned, we are waiting for the Supreme Court to set aside the decision of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal that will be pronounced.
