The newly sworn-in Imo State chairman of Labour Party, LP, Festus Onyekwulisi, on Friday described the party as a movement to sweep away the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, out of power in the state.
Onyekwulisi, disclosed this to newsmen in Owerri, while marshaling out the plans of the party to unseat APC, in Imo ahead of Saturday’s Governorship/House of Assembly elections.
The chairman said that Labour Party has come to liberate Imo people and give them leadership, and that Imo is the Labour Party and Labour Party, Imo State.
He also said that the party has started work to set up a situation room to help in the actualisation of their plan.
According to him, “Imo is Labour, Labour is Imo. We are running a movement and it is like a rail if you are on the track you will be crushed. We have our plans to ensure free and fair primaries and we are aware that the opposition is trying to sponsor a crisis in the Labour Party. They will fail because we are prepared for this journey.
“We are going to conduct the fairest and most transparent guber primaries in Imo State. We assure you that the process to produce a guber candidate will be transparent. We have our technicalities to stop their evil plans.”
“Anybody who wins will be transparent. If you win you win gallantly and if you lose you lose gallantly. We are setting up a situation room to chase our cause and We have started work on it,” he said.
