2023: Peter Obi not after foreign funding – Labour Party dismisses rumor

The Labour Party, LP, has dismissed news making the rounds that it’s presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, was abroad to solicit foriegn funding for his campaigns.

National Publicity Secretary of the Labour Party, Abayomi Oluwafemi, told newsmen on Saturday.

He described the speculations as part of the antics of political opponents, who were fearful by the rising profile of the Labour Party and its presidential candidate.

Oluwafemi said: “It is ridiculous that our political opponents have descended to a new low to insinuate that our party is oblivious of electoral laws.

“For the avoidance of doubt, neither our party nor our candidate is seeking for foriegn funding for any of our activities.

“Our candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, is hitting the ground running.

“He is reaching out to Nigerians in the diaspora most of whom have lost confidence in the current administration and see no reason to come home to invest.

“He is getting them ready to have a rethink because the incoming Labour Party-led administration which by the grace of God, he and Datti will be leading, will provide an enabling environment for direct foreign investment required to revive our ailing economy which the APC has unfortunately destroyed.”

The Publicity Secretary, however, said that the Labour Party and all of its candidates remain focused on the task ahead.
