In preparation for the 2023 general elections, Nollywood star Kenneth Okonkwo has formally joined the Labour Party.
On August 24, 2022, Okonkwo posted images of himself with Labour Party leaders in the Federal Capital Territory of Abuja on his Instagram page.
He wrote: ’It was an honor and a privilege to be welcomed into the Labour Party on the 23rd of August, 2022, at the Supreme God House, Apo, Abuja, by the entire executive of the FCT Labour Party, led by its Chairman, Comrade Peter Diugwu, representing the National Executive of the Party.
“I feel loved and cherished by the visit of these distinguished officials of this people-centric party to our chambers which culminated in my officially joining the Labour Party as a member.”
Keep in mind that the actor left the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, on July 12, 2022.
Following Kashim Shettima’s choice to be Bola Tinubu’s running mate for the APC presidential nomination, the actor decided he wanted out of the ruling party.
To the Ward Chairman of Nkpunano Ward in Nsukka, Enugu State, Okonkwo submitted his letter of resignation.
After the decision to field a Muslim-Muslim ticket in the 2023 presidential election, he declared he was leaving the APC.
Okonkwo reminded the APC in his resignation letter that he joined the party because he regarded it as a means of combating injustice.
