Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi has agreed to review the list of its presidential campaign council following harsh criticisms, especially on social media.
In a tweet on Friday, Obi wrote; “I’ve received several calls of concern following the release of the Labour Party’s Presidential Campaign Council list. Admittedly, there were some omissions and erroneous entries in the list, hence the concerns expressed.
“In response, the Labour Party Chairman in the presence of members of the NWC addressed the issues during a press conference. In keeping with our commitment to accountability, responsiveness and transparency, an updated list will be issued in due course. I plead for patience”.
The party has been faced with lots of criticisms following the release of its 1,234-man Obi-Datti campaign team, especially the inclusion of retired army general and defence spokesman, John Eneche.
Enenche, who made the team as a member of the PAC from the North-Central, had claimed that the killing of #EndSARS protesters in at Lekki Toll Gate, Lagos was false.
The ex-General had reportedly claimed that the Instagram live footage of DJ Switch, which showed #EndSARS protesters dying from bullets of soldiers from the Nigerian Army was photoshopped.
