According to the 60-year-old politician, he left the days ago die to “of issues that are at variance with my persona and principles”.

He also thanked the youths for the encouragement.

Obi wrote, “I thank all Nigerians, especially our youths who have joined me in the mission of taking back and reuniting Nigeria.

“This project is yours and for the of your children. I am just a facilitator.

“Since I resigned from the because of issues that are at variance with my persona and principles, I have consulted widely with various parties and personalities to ensure we do not complicate the route to our desired destination.

“For me, the process of achieving our goal is as fundamental as what one will do thereafter.

“Therefore, 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.

“I invite all Nigerians to join me in taking back our country. Be assured that I’ll never let you down.”

Mr Obi still has a hurdle to face in the Labour Party  for its presidential ticket as renowned political economist, Prof. has been billed to fly the party’s flag in the 2023 election

Recall that Obi had dumped the Peoples Democratic Party a few days ago despite purchasing the party’s presidential form and embarking on campaigns across the country.

Obi’s decision to dump the country’s major opposition came after a support group, Coalition for Peter Obi, complained about the PDP frustrating Obi’s presidential ambition.

In a letter addressed to the National Chairman of the PDP, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, titled ‘Resignation From Peoples Democratic and Withdrawal From the Presidential Contest’, the former governor said he was happy to have contributed to the nation-building efforts of the country through the PDP.

“Consequently, I am by this letter informing you of my withdrawal from the Presidential Primaries.

“It has been a great honour to contribute to nation-building efforts through our party. Unfortunately, recent developments within our party make it practically impossible to continue participating and making such constructive contributions,” the letter reads.
