Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate in 2023, Peter Obi, has said he promised to rebuild the nation and not to build a new party.

The former Anambra state governor stated this while revealing why he ignored the party?s National convention in Anambra State.

Peter Obi, via Twitter space said he ignored the convention because the party leadership under Julius Abure failed to conduct wide consultation with key stakeholders of the party before embarking on the said convention.

He laid emphasis on the need for the right thing to be done to salvage the party, adding that he is more passionate and focused about building a new Nigeria than building a new Labour Party.

He said:

?We promised to build Nigeria, we did not promise to build a New Labour Party,?
?It is the standard practice around the world where movements form themselves into blocs and are part of the political process.?
