The youth wing of the Labor Party on Thursday pledged to take control of the states of Lagos, Rivers, and Edo, along with other south-south and southeastern states, in the March 18 election for governor and councils.
Kennedy Ahanotu, acting national youth leader of the Labor Party, said this at the press conference announcing the March 18 election.
“The Governorate and State House elections across the country will give us another opportunity to identify the real ‘submissives’,” he said.
He said it was important to note that the Labor Party supported all of its election candidates and was not allied with any party.
“In the last election, they said we are four people tweeting in a room, but to their shock, we took over the space and despite all the fraud they allocated over six million votes to us even when they claim that Obidients are not more than 15 million people having PVCs to vote.
“We must protest by coming out en masse to cast our votes for the Labor Party governorship candidates and House of Assembly candidates.
“This simple assignment is the first step in telling the world that the Labour Party won the election.
“Let us show the opposition that we are resolute in the project of taking back our country.
“We must capture Lagos, Edo, Plateau, Benue, Taraba, Rivers, Abia, and Anambra, infact we will capture all the South-South and South-East states.”
Ahanotu called on ‘Obidients’ to challenge the status quo and urged youths, security officials, and staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to cease to be ready tools in the hands of politicians.
“Do not join in oppressing and intimidating our Youths. The life and future of Nigerian Youths matter. Enough is Enough,”
Ahanotu also urged Obidients to desist from selfish desires and focus on making political statements on Election Day.
