Former Governor of Anambra State and presidential hopeful, Peter Obi, has joined the Labour Party.
This is coming barely 24 hours after dumping the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). The former governor had dumped the party after the party refused to zone the ticket to the South
The former governor confirmed the development in a post on his Twitter handle on Friday.
The former governor had been scheduled to participate in the PDP presidential primary scheduled for May 28.
However, in the resignation letter dated May 24, 2022, and addressed to Iyorchia Ayu, national chairman of the PDP, Obi said recent developments in the party do not support his continued membership of the PDP.
Speculations had been rife that Obi might team up with Rabiu Kwankwaso, a former minister and governor of Kano State on the ticket of New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).
