The Labour Party in Delta State has successfully concluded the substitution of its governorship candidate for the 2023 general elections.
The process, which took place at on Friday last week, saw the withdrawal of the winner of the party’s primary election, Mr Vincent Okwuokei, from the governorship race, which paved the way to a supplementary election, with Deacon Ken Pela as the sole aspirant.
Deacon Pela was, therefore, declared the winner and returned as the governorship candidate of the Labour Party in Delta state.
Valentine Obienyem, media aide of Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), says the former governor is not a member of the National Association of Seadogs (NAS), better known as the Pyrates Confraternity.
Obienyem responded to the claims of the membership of the LP presidential candidate in a terse text message on Monday.
“Not at all,” the media aide said after he was asked to respond to trending social media posts suggesting that Obi belongs to the confraternity.
