A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Bode George, said the Labour Party, LP, was formed out of anger.
To this end, George said LP lacked the structure to win national elections.
Addressing journalists, he called on the 2023 LP presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to return to the PDP.
According to George: “The Labour Party doesn’t have the root. I have traversed every state in the country, there is nowhere you will not know or hear about our party, because it carries the full colour of Nigeria.
“The LP was a movement; they don’t have a solid root. LP came out of anger, it doesn’t have the kind of root we have. LP is a wind. Where was Obi? We can still talk to him, if he wants to.
“I have no iota of tribalism in my blood. I stand to fight for inclusiveness for all Nigerians in the political process of this country and especially in this party where some of us have suffered great injustice for the fight of equity and justice for all.
“As leaders of the party, we must not pander towards ethnic affiliation because PDP is the only true national party.”
