Before now, a faction of the party had elected another presidential candidate for the elections next year.
But the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) maintained that it only recognises the party’s presidential election which produced Obi as its candidate.
“The leadership of the NLC and TUC recognize the leadership of the Labour Party led by Barr. Julius Abure, a former trade union leader and workers are part of the leadership,” the NLC President Ayuba Wabba said in a statement issued on Thursday.
“The NLC and TUC are aware of only one presidential primary which was held in Asaba, Delta State on 30th May 2022 and produced HE Peter Obi as its presidential candidate and party flag bearer for 2023 Nigerian presidency.”
He said the Trade Union Congress (TUC) and NLC gave their full support to the processes which saw Obi as the party’s presidential candidate.
“This, therefore, is a guide that serves as a public disclaimer on Mr Calistus Okafor. We warn the general public to be aware of Calistus Okafor and characters who might want to cash in on the popularity of the Labour Party to hoodwink, extort and swindle unsuspecting members of the public,” he warned.
