This was contained in an open letter addressed to Comr. Julius Abure (Esq.), The National Chairman of Labour Party (LP).

The undersigned Coalition of Peter Obi (CPO), a stakeholder in the Obidient movement, led by the Barr. Joshua Ebighiebi, stands as steadfast supporters of the Labour Party.

The coalition are steadfast in their commitment to Peter Obi and Datti Ahmed’s goal of reconstructing Nigeria. As the National Chairman of the Labour Party, they humbly submit this appeal after the Obidient’s online meeting on March 21, 2024.

The National Coordinator of the Coalition , Barr. Joshua Ebighiebi strongly urge the Party National Working Committee to ensure the unimpeded inclusion of all willing and committed members in the upcoming congresses. To achieve this goal, the coalition recommend that the congresses commence from the grassroots level, starting with the wards, progressing to the Local Government Areas (LGAs), and culminating at the state level.

“We believe that this strategic approach will empower party members to actively participate in the selection of their representatives for the National Convention, ensuring a collective and inclusive approach to decision-making processes”

The coalition further recommends establishing explicit mandates for the Screening and Electoral Committees and disclosing their specifics to the public. The electoral process’s credibility depends on increased accountability and openness, both of which will be improved by this strategy.

With a focus on openness and democratic principles, we provide a forum where all members can express their thoughts and help to shape the party’s future. For the party to be strong and advance towards common objectives, inclusivity and grassroots involvement are essential.

The coalition appreciate the National Chairman’s consideration of these recommendations, which we believe will benefit the Labour Party. We look forward to positive reforms that will strengthen the party’s internal democracy and advance its goals.
