The Labour Party (LP) has issued a recommendation ahead of the 2027 general election. It suggested reserving the presidential ticket for former Anambra State Governor Peter Obi.

The party also wants the gubernatorial ticket to be reserved for Abia State Governor Alex Otti, citing his outstanding performance in government.

This was revealed in a statement published following the party’s National Convention, which was held in Nnewi, Anambra State on Wednesday.

“Based on the antecedents of the presidential candidate before, during, and after the 2023 general elections, it was recommended that the 2027 presidential ticket of the party be solely reserved for His Excellency, Mr. Peter Gregory Obi, the national leader of the party,” the communique read.
“Furthermore, the convention in session reviewed the ongoing development and performance of its Governor in Abia State, His Excellency, Dr. Alex Otti, and passed a vote of confidence in him and recommended the 2027 Abia State governorship ticket of the party be reserved for Dr. Alex Otti.”
Obi was the party’s current candidate in the 2023 general election. With 6,101,533 votes, the former governor followed Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who received 6,984,520 votes, and Bola Tinubu, who won the hotly contested election with 8,794,726 votes.

According to the communique signed by the party’s re-elected National Chairman, Comrade Julius Abure, and National Secretary, Umar Faruk Ibrahim, the LP said it had reviewed the performance of Obi and Governor Otti, respectively, and had decided to reserve its presidential and governorship tickets for them in the 2027 general elections.

The main opposition party “called on the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to quickly take drastic and proactive steps to save the economy from total collapse to revive the economy and put it on the path of growth and development.”

It promised its members across the country a hopeful and prosperous future.
