Why I’m endorsing Peter Obi for presidency – Kenneth Okonkwo

Actor Kenneth Okonkwo has said he is endorsing Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi as president “for the good governance of our dear country which is so blessed by God but has been so battered by bad leaders.”

The former member of All Progressive Congress said this while announcing his membership into Labour Party on Wednesday.

In a statement shared on Instagram, the Living in Bondage star wrote: “It was an honour and a privilege to be welcomed into the Labour Party on the 23rd of August, 2022, at the Supreme God House, Apo, Abuja, by the entire executive of the FCT Labour Party, representing the National Executive of the Party. I feel loved and cherished by the visit of these distinguished officials of this peoplecentric Party to our Chambers which culminated in my officially joining the Labour Party as a member.”

“I thank the Dynamics Ambassadors for Peter Obi (DAPO), which I am its National Spokesperson, for facilitating this my membership of Labour Party for the enthronement of good governance in Nigeria. I enjoin all citizens of Nigeria to join in this movement for the actualization of this divine mandate of Peter Obi come 2023. Thank you and God bless,” he added.

The 53-year-old announced his resignation from APC in a statement shared on social media on July 11.

The resignation came a day after APC presidential candidate Bola Tinubu announced former Borno State governor Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate.
