The Labour Party (LP) has said that its structure is massive beyond those of conventional political parties with people know.
The LP was responding to critics who continue to chide the party, its presidential candidate, Peter Obi and its supporters of only operating online without real-time structure.
But the party’s spokesperson, Yunusa Tanko while speaking on Arise News, Tuesday, said whoever thinks Labour Party is only popular on social media is missing it.
According to him, the regular structure that people know is one where manipulation and intimidation take place.
He said that the Nigerian youths and elites, who stood firm in the face of the quagmire waiting for a leader to take Nigeria out of its shackles, form the teeming support that the Labour Party is leveraging on.
He added that the Labour Party has the full support of the Nigerian Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, as well as the support of 10 other political parties.
Tanko said, “If they want the conventional structures, they shouldn’t be surprised, we have time. In the next few days or months to come, those structures and the flags of the Labour Party and the movement will be flying in every nook and corner of the country.
“They should also remember that no single human being can make a leader. It’s God and God’s chosen time is now and when the people speak they speak with the voice of God Almighty and we believe God is on our side.
“The Nigerian people have suffered so much in the hands of people doing political nomadism. Such people are already jittery. They believe that if change happens their dynasty and plan to continue to hold people to disdain and disrespect will be over,” he said.
He warned Nigerians to resist an oppressive government, noting that the goal of the Labour Party was to ensure that Nigerians, including the downtrodden, become comfortable.
“Nigeria is for all of us, and the best of us must be given the opportunity to lead the people and that’s what you will find in this movement,” he said.
