By Chinedu Echianu

 The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 general elections, Peter Obi has clarified that his visit to the Labour Party headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday was a reconciliatory move and not an endorsement of the leadership of Julius Abure as National Chairman as widely reported in the media.

 In a statement signed by his spokesman, Dr. Yunusa Tanko, Obi said he had repeatedly maintained that his interest was to carry everybody along into one strong family and not to endorse anyone's interest. The statement further read; "the visit was part of the consultations Obi has been embarking on in search of peace in the party.

"In line with this, he also met with the political arm of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC Trade Union Congress, and TUC, on Wednesday in continuation of his search for peace in the party.

 "At his meeting with the workers' union, the leadership of the NLC/TUC political commission led by comrade Titus Amba and comrade Chris Uyot was also disposed to peace in the party.

"At the meeting, he clearly made the point that the party needed to reconcile all various positions in a peaceful atmosphere to have a united house that should be all-inclusive. "He thanked the leadership of the political commission for their understanding and expressed the hope for a good working relationship very shortly.

"The LP standards bearer also plans to meet with other critical stakeholders like the Obidient to have an all-inclusive political family with a common dream of rescuing Nigeria." the statement concluded.
