To many Nigerians, the 2023 presidential race is between the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) and the major opposition party in the country, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Therefore, all other political parties, especially the Labour Party lacks what it takes to win a nationwide election.
While the ruling APC has been in power since 2015 and could boast of having the majority of the State Governors across the country, the PDP ruled the country for 16 years between 1999 and 2015 and can also boast of having a quiet number of Governors as well as other political offices across the country.
However, the Labour Party lacks the necessary political office holders, therefore, it has been described as a party without structure, which is mainly supported by some Nigerian youth on social media.
As a result of this, a prominent member of the party in Kogi State has dumped the party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, with the claim that he has realized that the party won’ t make any meaningful success in the forthcoming general election.
According to the report, the leader of the Labour Party (LP) in Olamaboro Local Government Area of Kogi state, David Ameh, said he decided to join the ruling party with his thousands of supporters have discovered that staying in the Labour Party will result in a total waste of time.
