LP Vows Not To Adopt Any Presidential Candidate In 2019
The Labour Party has ruled out the adoption of a presidential candidate from another political party for the 2019 presidential election.
The party would rather field its own candidate for the election.
The National chairman of the party, Dr Mike Omotosho said it had been repositioned to take over the affairs of the country and lift it to enviable heights.
Omotosho who spoke on Friday in Abuja said if there is any need to work with another presidential candidate, it is not about labour party winning but about the interest of the people.
He also ruled out the possibility of the party accepting people to defectors.
He said, “We will not adopt a presidential candidate the way we have been doing in the past. We have an ideology that we are working with and we intend to build credible people.
“We are not going to be a platform for defectors anymore. We are going to have credible candidates that will remain after election and build the party.
“So come in now, and this is an opportunity for credible candidates and aspirants to rather come in, join the party and build the party of our future together and have that desired nation that we all pray for.
He similarly said the two major political parties, PDP and APC have in one way or the failed the country while saying that labour party has come not as opposition but as the most dominant alternative.
