Abure ignored Obi’s advice for an all-inclusive convention – Tanko

Posted by

Yinusa Tanko, the chief spokeswoman for the Obi-Datti campaign team, claims that the current Labour Party problem might have been avoided if the leadership had followed the counsel of Peter Obi, the party’s presidential candidate in the 2023 elections.

Tanko said that the recently finished national convention of the party, which restored Julius Abure as national chairman, was not all-inclusive.

“His Excellency, Peter Obi, has made a concerted effort to intervene whenever we have this particular issue and to improve,” Tanko said on Channels Television’s The Morning Brief show on Monday.

“When the issue of the national convention arose, he (Obi) suggested to the national chairman that because we are now larger, we should have a broader consultation: meet with responsible and interested people such as the TUC and NLC, stakeholders, and the Obedient group – young people who want to see Nigeria work. Meet with leaders that have various perspectives that can guide us to greater heights.

“All of these were proposals made by him (Obi), and he not only suggested them, but also put them into action when he met with members of the National Assembly.

“He (Obi) just met with the party’s leadership in Asaba, trying to give them ideas on how he feels certain things should be done to help our condition, but you know how politics works; sometimes people try to encourage people, but they do something different.
