How court prevented me from conducting LG elections – Peter Obi

Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi  has explained why he did not hold local government elections while governor of Anambra State.

Obi claimed he was prevented from holding local government elections due to court action.

The former governor announced the party’s mega rally in Benin to rally support for LP candidates ahead of the Edo State local government elections on September 2.

Obi said;

As Anambra governor, I was prevented by arms of legal and litigation from conducting local government elections for over six years in the state.

In other news, Peter Obi, will launch the party’s campaigns for the November 11 governorship election in Imo state today.

The event will take place at Owerri’s Kanu Nwankwo Stadium.

The governor of Abia State, Alex Otti, the party’s national chairman, Julius Abure, and other national officers and chieftains would join Obi to launch the campaigns in the state officially.

Athan Achonu, the LP’s governorship candidate in the state, told journalists in Owerri that everything was in place to welcome Obi and his entourage.
