Okonkwo recently joins Labour Party

Kenneth Okonkwo, veteran Nollywood actor and politician, has said Nigerians would be free from bondage if they vote for Peter Obi of the Labour Party in the 2023 election.

Okonkwo in his acceptance speech, said, “There’s something I always see anytime I come across the candidacy of Peter Obi and Datti Baba Ahmed, ‘a new Nigeria is possible.

“I see a new Nigeria where bullets will be taken away from the hand of these children and replace it with books. I see a new Nigeria where guns will be taken away from the hand of these lovely Nigerian children and replace it with garment of productivity, I am confident and I see a new Nigeria where people will no longer be sharing the cake and of course there’s nothing to share anymore, yet I still see a new Nigeria where on baking the cake for equitable distribution to every Nigerian.

“And why am I confident in seeing this new Nigeria? Because there’s a man who has wowed to change and transform this nation from a consumption nation to a production nation and from the antecedent of this same man whatever he said he will do he has done.

“Why am I confident? Because this man chose a party that is called Labour party, Labour is known for productivity, I am surprised that Labour is agonizing when it can organize. Labour still remains the most organized group in this country. On the day Labour stands up in Nigeria the new Nigeria we’ve been praying for will come alive.

“Today you cannot travel by land, it’s either you’re killed, kidnapped or terrorized, we cannot travel by air because it’s too expensive, a return ticket will take you the sum of Two Hundred Thousand naira (N200,000) Abuja to Lagos, on economy.

“You cannot travel by rail because it is grounded. We can’t even service our debt because they have borrowed us into bondage, God forbid I can no longer live in bondage.”

On his part, Chairman Labour Party Federal Capital Territory, Comr. Peter Chukwuemeka in his remark expressed joy and humility over the assignment to represent the National Chairman of the party.

According to him, “I’m overwhelmed and privileged to represent the celebrity National Chairman of our great party in the person of Barrister. Julius Abure and all the national working committee of Labour Party.

“Labour Party has become a mega party, when you see a political party without a president, senator, House of Representatives, governor, House of Assembly Chairman or Local government Chairman competing with major and established political parties, something is about to happen.”
