Don’t relent… we shall be victorious, Osuntokun tells LP supporters


Akin Osuntokun, the newly-appointed director-general of the Labour Party (LP) presidential campaign council, says his team will work hard for the victory of Peter Obi.


Osuntokun said this in a statement on Thursday announcing his acceptance as the DG of the LP campaign council.


“It is with a deep sense of duty and humility that I accept my appointment as the Director General of Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Council, especially at this critical point of Nigeria’s political history,” the statement reads.


“Every ardent observer of the Nigerian political space and recent trend of events will attest to the teeming organic support the emergence of His Excellency, Peter Obi, as the presidential candidate of the Labour Party has received across the country.


 “This is undeniably a pointer to the fact that Nigerians have anchored their hope on the ensuing victory of Peter Obi in the coming 2023 presidential election. My team and I hereby promise to work assiduously hard to ensure victory for the Obi-Datti ticket come February 2023.


“We are not oblivious of the magnitude of work required of us to deliver on the promise so declared. We are braced for it, and equally find solace in divine guidance, the counsel of our elders, and the unflinching support of well-meaning Nigerians that are eager to see the Nigerian socio-economic status quo upturned, and our beloved country progress like other progressing countries all over the world.


“I am confident that under my leadership, the campaign will excel. Challenges will surely come, but we will surmount them as one united family.


 “May I use this evident opportunity to encourage our supporters across the country and in the diaspora never to relent, but to continue with their amiable support at different levels, in different quarters, and through their respective approaches.


“The race has not ended, the finish-line is in sight, and the prize is assured. We shall be victorious, and we shall celebrate!”


He also expressed his appreciation to the party leadership for finding him worthy of the position, and promised that his team would work for the success of the campaign.


“I wish to appreciate the trust reposed in me by the leadership of Labour Party and the advisory body of Obi-Datti presidential campaign to steer this ship even as we sail through stormy political waters in Nigeria. We will get to our destination in delight,” he added.


 “The campaign promises to continue the tradition of engaging with politics devoid of acrimony, and to always push the boundaries of issue-based campaign, as we lead the advent of a new Nigerian political terrain.”
