“Democracy has been turned to a government of a few, by a few for a few. This is not what we fought for and bargained for pre-1999. The need for a third force, a genuine party of the people, a credible alternative with credible people have become critically imperative,” he said.

“The events in the past few days are indicating that their time is up, our time is now! Our Labour Party, the true party of the people is here! The national and global enthusiasm that followed the primaries election of the popular and credible Peter Obi as the Presidential Candidate of Labour Party is a glaring pointer.”
