Labour Party’s Kenneth Okonkwo Identifies LP as the Leading Opposition Force



Kenneth Okonkwo, former spokesperson of the Labour Party’s campaign council, recently asserted that the Labour Party (LP) stands out as the leading force in opposition. He emphasized this position during an interview with Arise TV, shedding light on the party’s influence and the unique approach of one of its prominent members, Peter Obi.

Okonkwo drew attention to Peter Obi’s seven-point agenda, a strategic plan crafted before the election. According to him, other presidential candidates are attempting to adopt the same agenda without a clear understanding of how to implement it. In Okonkwo’s view, Peter Obi not only presented the agenda but also defended it during the campaign.

During the interview, Okonkwo shared, “Peter Obi crafted out the seven-point agenda that all the other parties are coping with, or rather doing a terrible job out of it. You remember he was the one who came out as a candidate and defended his seven-point agenda, which included securing Nigeria.”

He highlighted the significance of Peter Obi’s unique approach, pointing out that other candidates seem to be emulating him without comprehending the strategies he employed to achieve his goals. Okonkwo applauded Peter Obi for scoring 25% in all six geopolitical zones, positioning him as a leader who understands the desires of Nigerians.

In a parliamentary system context, Okonkwo described Peter Obi as the “shadow president,” likening him to effective opposition leaders who play a crucial role in challenging the government.

As the Labour Party asserts itself as a championing opposition force, Okonkwo’s insights shed light on the distinctive role played by Peter Obi and the party’s influence in shaping political discourse in Nigeria. The coming months will likely witness further developments in the political landscape, with opposition parties positioning themselves for effective engagement with the government.
