Labor Party Postpones Presidential Campaign Rally In Ekiti, Ondo States Gives Reasons
The Labour Party has announced the postponement of its presidential campaign rally it planned to hold in Ekiti and Ondo states.
According to a statement, the party blamed unavoidable and unusual circumstances beyond its control. The LP, however, promised to announce new dates for its rally in the states. The statement read, “Due to some unavoidable and unusual circumstances beyond control, our earlier scheduled presidential campaign rally in Ekiti and Ondo for 15th and 16th December 2023 are hereby postponed. A new date will be announced. We regret the inconvenience caused by this.”
This comes a day after its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, and his running mate, Baba Ahmed-Datti, had a rally in Lokoja, Kogi State that was generally reported to have been poorly attended apparently due to poor mobilization.
Since the October 18 commencement of rallies by the LP, the party has not been consistent with its schedule.
The rally held in Kogi on Tuesday had been announced to hold on October 23. Other rallies scheduled for October that failed to hold included the ones meant for Niger, Kwara, Bayelsa, Rivers and Cross River.
The party has also failed to stage the rallies scheduled for November in Kaduna, Kano, Jigawa, Katsina, and Sokoto states.
