The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has continued to call on his supporters across the country to remain calm as the struggle to reclaim the mandate given to him continues.

Obi, who addressed LP candidates in Anambra State on Friday, noted that he was on a thank-you tour, adding that people who voted for him in the February 25 poll voted for hope as he has all it takes to fix the country.

He congratulated all the new National Assembly members under the party.

The former Anambra governor urged the candidates in the state assembly election to go to the polls in an organised manner, while asking the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to announce the outstanding Ogbaru Federal Constituency election result.

Obi was accompanied on the tour by members of the party’s national leadership and Anambra State executive members, as well as several National Assembly members-elect and state assembly candidates.

The meeting followed a visit to Enugu to commiserate with the family of the late Oyibo Chukwu, Enugu-East LP senatorial candidate, and Abia State.

In a tweet on Friday evening, Obi said he shared “great moments” with all the LP candidates in Anambra State at the federal and state levels.

“We must build a better nation for ourselves and for the future generations. Once again, I congratulated our candidates who won various elective posts at the Federal Level, and encouraged those contesting at the State level to give in their best,” he said.

“I reminded them that at the centre of our campaign will be a strong desire for service to the people and a firm commitment to nation building. I listened to their challenges and wished them well. They shall succeed. A New Nigeria is here.”
