Apapa LP Faction Disputes ’s Victory Claim in 2023 Presidential Election.

Lagos, Nigeria – The -led faction of the Labour Party (LP) has strongly contested the assertion made by their 2023 presidential candidate, Peter Obi, claiming victory in the February 25 presidential election. According to the faction, President Bola Tinubu was the actual winner of the election.

The faction’s stance was articulated in a statement released by the spokesperson of the faction, Abayomi Arabambi, in support of comments made by Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, regarding the 2023 presidential election.

Arabambi stated that both Peter Obi and the factional National Chairman, Julius Abure, were aware of the true performance of the party in the presidential election. He emphasized that President emerged as the winner.

The LP faction views the response from the Abure faction to Soyinka’s statement as disrespectful, likening it to “affront and abuse from a rude boy to his grandfather.”


Arabambi further explained that the party faced significant challenges in its preparations for the 2023 elections, including inadequate logistics and a lack of party agents in many polling units, which had severe consequences for their performance.
