2023: How Labour Party will defeat APC, PDP – Doyin Okupe reveals
Doyin Okupe has revealed that ahead of the 2023 election, the Labour Party is planning the largest coalition in Nigerian political history.
WITHIN NIGERIA reports that the party on Friday submitted the name of Okupe as Peter Obi’s running mate.
Okupe, the Director-General of the Peter Obi Campaign, will serve as a placeholder until the party’s stakeholders have agreed on a suitable vice presidential candidate for the 2023 elections.
Speaking on Channels TV, Okupe said his name was submitted while the LP makes decision on the largest coalition to defeat the APC and the PDP.
Okupe said: “Our idea is to bring up the largest political coalition ever in the history of Nigeria because we are facing two giants; the APC and the PDP.
“We cannot work alone, we need to put up a coalition and it is important for us to ensure all stakeholders are carried along.
“The choosing of VP candidate is an electoral process which does not stop until the process ends. We believe that the Labour Party coming to rule Nigeria is essentially going to be about young Nigerians.
“I’m willing to put down my back so young people can come to the top.
“The decision of LP to use Okupe is to comply with the Nigerian constitution.”
