The 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi has confirmed he will be travelling overseas to hold dialogue with Nigerians in the diaspora.
Obi confirmed this in a personally signed statement on Thursday in which he stressed the importance of Nigerians living abroad and their roles in nation-building.
The former Anambra State Governor listed countries he will be visiting to include Germany, Italy, Canada and the U.S.A.
He wrote in a personally signed statement via his Twitter account that; “En route to the U.S.A, I’ll make a pit stop in Germany to interact with Nigerians in Germany. I hold Nigerians in Diaspora in very high esteem; they represent the core of our human development capital and contribute immensely to nation building via remittances and technical knowledge transfer. My present outing will take me to Germany, Italy, Canada & the U.S.A. I look forward to the very constructive engagements.”

Labour Party Disowns Campaign Council Inaugurated By Pat Utomi
The Labour Party (LP), Imo State Chapter, has on Thursday rejected the constitution and inauguration of the OBI/DATTI campaign council inaugurated by Prof. Pat Utomi.
The party, in a statement, said that nobody has been appointed to the Presidential Campaign Council in Imo State, hence the action of Utomi was laughable.
Naija News recalls that one Dr. Fabian Ihekweme was allegedly appointed to Imo LP Presidential Campaign Council by Utomi at the Banquet Hall of Immaculate Royal Hotel, Port Harcourt Road, Owerri.
Reacting to the development, the LP stated that it was only aware of Utomi being in the state as the National Leader of the National Consultative Forum to attend the endorsement of the party’s flag bearer, Peter Obi, as the presidential candidate of the Rescue Nigeria Project (RNP).
