A Chietain of the Labour Party (LP) in Ogun State and the Acting National Publicity Sectetary of the party, Comrade  Abayomi Arabambi, yesterday, said he and other leaders adopted the incumbent Governor of the state, Prince Dapo Abiodun, as the candidate for the Saturday's election, because the LP has no candidate for the election.


Arabambi said since the party, has 

no governorship candidate for the election, LP members cannot sit idle and fold their arms on the day of election and waste their votes,,,


The LP national officer, gave the explanation in an interview with select journalists in Abeokuta.


Citing what he described as precedent, Arabambi said before the Presidential Election, Valentine Ozigbo, former gubernatorial candidate of PDP, now in Labour Party and presently the  Special Adviser to Peter Obi on Technical Matters, came on air to and advised that where we don't have candidates, we can vote any other candidates of our choice. 


He said, "So standing on that precedent and since we don't have a governorship candidate in Ogun State, we must have a choice, we now look at someone who is very close to the Labour Party ideology, somebody who believes in all inclusiveness, accountability and in all respects  we adopted the person.


"We cannot just sit down on election day and fail to vote. We cannot just waste over and above  hundred thousand votes that was casted for our Presidential candidate Mr Peter Obi.

That was why we decided to choose Governor Dapo Abiodun."


The LP Chieftain, said those who were criticising the action of the leaders,  were those people that were brought into the party, by ethnic bigots after the emergence of Peter Obi as the presidential candidate of the party.


"Some of these political misfits, despots, scavengers and opportunist  irredentists  took  up residence  and life-line on Labour Party financial status to become super rich overnight with their despirate aim  to establish the phantom believes that they  ‘’own’’ the Labour Party, by shutting out divergent interrogations.


"The Labour Party electoral rendition is a thrilling experiment of what could be; of political possibilities, of change, but it appears with the manifestly corrupt nature of some people, couple with all manners of established criminal contradiction, conspiracies and infractions, the party is doomed to crumple under the weight of its own afflictions and internal contradictions.  


"We as party leaders thought the arrowhead will be able to handle our party well, but at the end of the day, he goes for anything that has money as his surname."


While also stating that the LP would not field candidates for the 26 House of Assembly  seats, Arabambi declared that the party, would not adopt candidates for the position.
