LP vows to reject failed PDP, APGA contenders

The Labour Party (LP) in Anambra State yesterday said it would not accommodate governorship aspirants from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) after they fail to win the primaries of their parties.
LP Chairman, Mr. Sam Oraegbunam, said PDP and APGA aspirants would be rejected if they, in their usual practice, thought of running to the party to pick its governorship ticket.
Oraegbunam said such aspirants would have no chance in LP and the party would not tolerate attempts to destroy it.
He said: “LP also does not support the idea of zoning the governorship to any particular part of the state as being canvassed by some political actors. Anybody from any zone is free contest the governorship election.”
Speaking on how LP is preparing for the October local government and November governorship elections, Oreagbunam told journalists in Awka, the state capital, that the party is battle ready.
He said: “The fact that we are not waiting for those that will fail in PDP and APGA to come and run on LP platform is a demonstration that we are preparing for the elections.
Describing LP as the only party that is crisis-free in Nigeria, Oraegbunam added that the National Chairman of the party, Chief Dan Nwanyanwu and Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State would soon visit Awka to flag-off the party’s governorship campaign.
He said that LP would present candidates who would contest for the chairmanship post of the 21 local government areas.
Oraegbunam, who assured that LP would perform well during the elections, said: “Our credibility speaks for us; LP is the only party that is peaceful and really ready for the election. In APGA, there is crisis, same thing in PDP and the newly registered All Progressives Congress (APC) has not even contemplated appointing its interim state officers. Labour Party is ready for the election and we would make a big impact.
“Labour Party does not believe in zoning the governorship of Anambra as being canvassed by some political leaders and that for now, Dr Ifeanyi Uba is the only aspirant who has shown serious interest for the ticket of the party.”
