THE National Chairman of Labour Party (LP), Mr. Julius Abure has resolved to run an all inclusive government as he promises Nigerians a government of accountability when elected into in the forth coming presidential election in 2023.

  He further pledged that the LP would hold the presidential candidate of the party, Peter Obi and other candidates contesting on the platform of the party accountable if they renege on the social contract entered with the people when they are elected into office next year.

 Abure stated this via a telephone call with the media on Sunday, stressing that unlike the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC),   LP would not just bring a government in place with the help of the people, but would go as far as holding the government accountable to the Nigerian people who voted them into office.

  On the ObiDientmovement, the LP leader averred that it transcends Obi and all other candidates contesting on LP’s platform because the election would be people oriented.

  His words: “This 2023 general elections and the campaign, it’s the people that will drive the process. They are the ones already driving it as you can see across the length and breathe of Nigeria. We are only giving direction to it.

  “We are going to enthrone leadership that will work for the people and that leadership is going to be held accountable for the people. We are going to make sure Peter Obi and all other candidates that win on Labour Party platform are held accountable to the people.

  “If they form a government and decide not to do what the people want, we will abandon them and join the people to fight them. We are going to have a paradigm shift in the manner and ways politics is played in Nigeria. We are going to provide leadership by example.

  “Labour Party will not just bring a government in place for Peter Obi, we are going to hold him accountable because the movement transcends Peter Obi. It is even transcending LP; it is about the people of Nigeria.

  “It’s about the future of the country, the growth and development of the country, the downtrodden Nigerians that have been suffering over the years and about the blood of Nigerians who have been slaughtered for years by the maladministration of the PDP and the current APC government,” he said.

  Abure who was responding to question on his ability to replicate his kingsman’s (John Oyegun) feat to sack a sitting government at the national level, stated that he had not only set a pace, “the party has prepared a manifesto that is people-oriented to tackle the current economic and security challenges in the country.

  “We are ready to provide leadership and the people are ready to follow. We are 100 per cent ready for the campaign. The party’s manifesto is ready; our message is ready; our personnel are ready. We are ready to hit the ground running. They are very agitated to be on the street. We have been the ones restraining them not to.

  “I have set the pace. I will go beyond Oyegun. He only succeeded in bringing in a government and never succeeded in holding that government accountable, he added.
