The Labour Party, LP, has reacted to the news of former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi joining its fold.

Labour Party while welcoming Obi into its fold, stressed that together with the former Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and presidential aspirant, it will take back Nigeria.

Taking to it’s official Twitter handle, LP wrote: “Dear Peter Obi, welcome to the Labour party, the party of productivity.

“Together we will Take back Nigeria.”

Obi announced his decision to join LP via his Twitter handle on Friday, after he registered with the party in his Agulu Ward in Anambra State.

Giving reasons for joining the Labour Party, Obi said: “I have chosen a route that I consider to be in line with our aspirations and my mantra of taking the country from consumption to production; and that is the Labour Party which is synonymous with the people, workers, development, production, securing and uniting Nigerians as one family.”

A few days ago, Obi resigned from the former ruling party.
