The Labour Party (LP) has announced the postponement of its previously scheduled presidential campaigns in the states of Ekiti and Ondo on the 15th and 16th of December, respectively.
In a brief statement posted on its verified Twitter account on Wednesday, the party expressed regrets for any trouble the postponement may have caused and promised to announce a new date soon.
The statement read, “Due to some unavoidable and unusual circumstances beyond control, our earlier scheduled Presidential Campaign Rally in Ekiti & Ondo for 15th and 16th December, 2022 are hereby POSTPONED. New date will be announced. We regret the inconveniences caused by this.”
The delay came a day after the campaign by the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, in Kogi State on Tuesday, during which he pledged to raise the minimum wage and put the emphasis on production rather than consumption.
