….pleads for peace to reign

The Labour Party (LP), has outrightly condemned the politically motivated attacks on innocent citizens at various parts of Lagos State because they were believed to have voted for the LP.

These attacks which were reported to have  taken  place in the early hours of Monday, February 27th, were dished out to indigenes and non-indigenes alike.

This was contained in a statement signed by

Oseloka H. Obaze, Deputy Director General/Campaign Manager, Obi-Datti PCC, in Abuja, on Monday night.

He said, “It is most regrettable that political thugs would single out citizens who exercised their constitutional rights to vote for candidates or parties of their choice.

“In keeping with its core value of political decorum, the Labour Party thanks its supporters and indeed all Nigerians living in Lagos who have exercised their fundamental rights to vote according to the dictates of their conscience.

“Labour Party is aware of some egregious irregularities in the elections in several states.

“The party will follow due process and must use constitutional means to address our grievances thus giving peace a chance.

“It will, however, remain resolute in its mission to change Nigeria, which is after all greater than all of us. We have to protect the peace while defending every vote.

“Governments at all levels must recommit to the constitutional responsibility to protect citizens within their territories regardless of their political leanings.”
