2027 is about Peter Obi, not LP – Kenneth Okonkwo

Nollywood actor and former spokesperson of the Labour Party
presidential campaign council, Kenneth Okonkwo has said the crisis rocking the
party would not affect Peter Obi if he decides to run for the presidency again
in 2027.


He explained that politics is about the candidate and not
the political party.


Speaking in a recent interview with Arise TV, Okonkwo said
Peter Obi represents “a new Nigeria” regardless of any political platform he is
contesting on.


He said, “2027 is about Peter Obi, not about Labour Party.
Anybody who is bringing Peter Obi on the table, is bringing the new Nigeria, a
new third force, absolute victory.


“When you come to elections, you take about candidates, not
political parties. Peter Obi electrified Labour Party. He has no business to
lose sleep over whatever is happening in any political party. How many months
did he joined Labour Party? And he made what he made. People are loyal to his
person. The new Nigeria is loyal to his people.”
