By KENNETH ONYEKWERE, ABAKILIKI
Former Minister of State for Health, Chief Fidelis Nwankwo has tasked the teeming supporters of the Labour Party, LP and Obidient movement in Ebonyi state, to have full confidence in the Nigeria judiciary, insisting that Peter Obi, will be declared the winner by the Court.
Nwankwo, a former National commissioner for the Independent National electoral commission, INEC, noted that only Court has the power to re-write the wrongs allegedly done by the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, during the last February 25th, 2023 Presidential election in the country.
The former council chairman of Izzi LGA made this known while briefing newsmen shortly after meeting with stakeholders and teeming supporters of Labour Party, LP, and Obidient movement members, which took place in Abakaliki, Ebonyi state.
The former Minister contested the primary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ebonyi state but couldn’t succeed before joining the Labour Party, LP.
Nwankwo who narrated his political journey so far said he will continue to remain in Labour Party, LP, noting that Nigeria will be governed by Peter Obi, who according to him, has the capacity and sagacity to develop and transform the nation’s economy.
He said: “The prayer of Nigerians is that the judiciary will re-write the wrongs done by APC during the last Presidential and National Assembly election. The man Nigerians voted for is Mr Peter Obi. He will be declared the winner and become the President of Nigeria”.

Nwankwo apologized to the teeming supporters of Labour Party, LP, and Obidient movement members in Ebonyi state, who approached him to come and fly the flag of the party as its governorship candidate.
“I wish to apologize to Labour Party, LP, supporters in Ebonyi for not bringing back the ticket, but I want you to reason with me, show me understanding that it was no longer an open contest but the supremacy of the Party, personal interest and sometimes, you can call it tyranny of the Party and the powers that be, that denied us the chance but next time, we can do better” he stated.
He however, urged the supporters to vote massively for candidates of the Party who are standing election for the Ebonyi state Houses of Assembly, and as well, wait for further instructions on who to vote for in the governorship election.
