BREAKING: Utomi Steps Down For Peter Obi


Labour Party (LP) presidential aspirant, Prof. Pat Utomi, has withdrawn from the 2023 race. Utomi said he was quitting to back the party’s new entrant and former Anambra State governor, Peter Obi.

Utomi spoke in Asaba, Delta State capital at the ongoing national convention of the LP on Monday.

Participants at the convention erupted with cheers and standing ovation the moment that Prof. Utomi announced that he stepped down for Obi.

Recall that Obi resigned from the PDP to join Labour Party after the National Consultative Front (NCFront) adopted the party as its mega party for ‘3rd Force’ stakeholders and allies for the 2023 elections.
