Peter Obi Criticizes Federal Government for Failing Niger Delta
By Adeke Chukwuka
During a town hall meeting in Yenagoa, the state capital, on Tuesday, Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 presidential election, asserted that Nigeria has let down the Niger Delta region due to the profound poverty prevailing in the area.
Obi made this statement while officially presenting the Labour Party flag to the party’s gubernatorial candidate for Bayelsa State, Udengs Eradiri.
Peter Obi urged Bayelsa State residents to scrutinise the promises made by candidates from different political parties in the upcoming November 11 governorship election.
Hundreds of Bayelsans warmly received the former Anambra State governor at the Labour Party town hall meeting in Yenagoa. The gathering was focused on the presentation of the party’s gubernatorial candidate, Eradiri, who started the event by outlining the transformative impact his potential administration could bring to the state.
Obi encouraged supporters to fact-check the claims of other gubernatorial candidates and emphasised the importance of instilling a culture of verifying politicians’ statements among Nigerians. The pivotal moments of the event included the official presentation of the Labour Party flag to Eradiri and the inauguration of the party’s campaign secretariat.
