The leadership of the Labour Party (LP) has said that it will formally unveil the names of leaders and members that will form its Presidential Campaign Council in a few days.
This was disclosed in a statement signed by the National Chairman of the party, Julius Abure, in Abuja, on Wednesday.
This development comes hours after it was reported that the Labour Party’s Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi, had not constituted his campaign council as he was said to be making consultations across the Country.
Abure said; “For our numerous supporters and members across the Nation, this is to inform you that we are yet to commence our own campaigns.’’
“The Labour Party will officially open its campaigns in a few days from now and the world will be formally notified. It will also formally unveil a list of leaders and members of the party that will form the campaign council.”
“We are using this opportunity to sympathise with millions of Nigerian students who have been forced out of their various institutions of learning for nearly eight months by a government that has very little regard for our future generations.’’
“Education is the bedrock of any nation and for any government to toil with the sector is disastrous. We therefore urge the Muhammadu Buhari-led government to quickly resolve the lingering  faceoff between the Federal Government and the members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities.’’
“And to our esteemed university students, the Labour Party is aware of the difficulties you have been exposed to in the last seven years;  a situation where students spend six years for a four year course.’’
“The Labour Party’s government intends to declare a state of emergency on education which will ultimately end the incessant academic disruption. The Labour Party’s government is your government and the youth will play a major role in it.”
