Edo 2024: LP repositions to clinch governorship seat

The Labour Party (LP) on Sunday said it was being repositioned to clinch the governorship seat in the Edo 2024 election.

National Publicity Secretary of LP, Mr Obiora Ifoh, made this known in a statement in Abuja.

According to Ifoh, the party in Edo commenced a capacity building programme for wards and local government executives to strengthen and reposition the party for victory.

He said the National Chairman of the party, Mr Julius Abure, at the training, expressed optimism that Labour Party remained the only political party that could rescue the nation and Edo State from bad governance.

Abure said, “The intention of the programme is to build the capacity of our local governments and ward executives in terms of what they are expected to do during an election.

” It is intended to develop and build their capacity for the Edo 2024 governorship election.

“Labour party believes that elections are won and lost at the ward or local governments level, depending on the action and inaction of members.

“This also underscores the importance to build capacity of our local government and ward officers being trained in the trainer-workshop; they are supposed to replicate the training in their various local government and wards. ”

According to Abure, LP believes strongly that it is the only party that has the answer to the socio-economic challenges of the state and the nation.

He said that the high level of infrastructure decay, poverty, hunger and unemployment was unimaginable and the Labour Party had the ideology to change the trajectory and reposition the country for greatness.

“Therefore, Edo is looking up to our party to do the needful by giving them the right candidate that can defend their votes.

“Our main objective today in Edo is how to win the election with the right candidate that has the capacity to win.”

Abure noted that the same training would also be held in the other senatorial districts as a way of focusing the party for victory in 2024. (NAN)
