The leader of the Labour Party (LP) in Bauchi State, has applauded the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for making the mistake that led to the exit of former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi from the party.
Goldennewsng reports that the LP chieftain made this known while speaking at a PDP retreat for elected officials in Bauchi State.
When called upon to speak at the event, the party leader in the snippet making the rounds online said if PDP had not made the mistake of letting Peter Obi leave the party, the 35 members elected in the 10th Assembly would not have happened.
Recall that Peter Obi, who was considered one of the top contenders for the PDP presidential ticket, exited the party less than three days before its presidential primary election.
He later joined LP to contest the 2023 presidential election but was defeated by the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Bola Tinubu.
Surprisingly, Peter Obi’s presence in LP led to the victory of some members who contested in the National Assembly and House of Representative elections.
