The Labour Party has begun a door-to-door campaign across the 13 local government areas of Nasarawa State.
Asked if the All Progressives Congress is being threatened by LP in Nasarawa, he said, “The Labour Party strength has been with the labour union itself, NUT, NUTRW and all the rest. For your information, they were not part of the gathering. They had come out clear to endorse APC governorship candidate in Nasarawa State and they had given their reasons and because of that, they were not invited.
“The leadership of labour in Nasarawa State were invited also to go and put the same kind of show. They joined their counterpart in Kebbi State and also endorsed the governorship candidate of APC in Kebbi State because of what they demonstrated in Nasarawa State.
“Therefore there is no way APC can be threatened in Nasarawa State by Labour Party. If we are going to be threatened definitely not by Labour Party in Nasarawa State. The result of the election will show that. To be honest with you, I don’t know who is the real governorship candidate of the Labour Party in Nasarawa State and I am not joking.”
