Apapa, who noted that Obi’s goodwill and past achievements were attracting Nigerians to the party, said, “There are some people who you may not believe are coming up to support Obi; some leaders up to heads of state are in support of Obi. Many governors, more than five of them, are supporting the party underneath. We don’t want to mention their names for now.
“It is because of the way Obi performed before. Again, not all of them believe that Nigeria should continue the way it is going now. They want change, better and positive change for that matter, not like the other change we experienced in the past.”
He said the APC and PDP had made the LP a target of their criticisms because they were afraid of the growing support it was enjoying, adding, “It is because of the popularity of the LP now that everybody is embracing the party; definitely, the APC and PDP are afraid.”
The LP Chairman in Ekiti State, Odunayo Okunade, who expressed satisfaction with the growing support for the party and Obi in the state, urged members and supporters to continue to mobilise others “in a bid to have a government that will be sensitive to the plights of Nigerians in 2023.”
