The lawmaker representing Egbeda/Ona Ara Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Akin Alabi, has said the Labour Party (LP) will not get up to 15 votes in his polling unit in the 2023 presidential election.
Alabi stated this in a post on his Twitter page, on Saturday.
In a statement on Friday, Pat Utomi, professor of political economy had said LP plans to deploy at least 15 agents to each polling booth in the country to help safeguard votes in the 2023 general elections.
“The broad coalition of women, youth, professionals and the intellectuals which have adopted the leadership of the Labour Party and Peter Obi is serving notice that in addition to its agents which will number up to 15 in each polling booth in the country, it will use technology to guard the votes of Nigerians in 2023,” Utomi had said.
Reacting to Utomi’s statement, Alabi said that: “Labour Party will not get 15 votes in my polling unit at Ajiwogbo, Ward 4, Egbeda Local Government, Ibadan.”
Alabi, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is a staunch supporter of the presidential candidate of the ruling party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
In a tweet on July 3, he wrote: “I can let Tinubu run my life.
“I will even beg him to run it. Shows how much I believe in him. Even if I was a member of Labour Party, I would still support him.”
