A former Chairman of the Labour Party (LP) in Anambra, Jude Ezenwafor, has emerged as the factional presidential candidate for the 2023 elections.

Ezenwafor, a sole aspirant, emerged through affirmation during the faction’s primary held in Abuja on Wednesday.

“I am on a rescue mission to free Nigeria from social, economic, and political crises currently bedeviling it, he said after his emergence.

“Labour is leading a revolutionary course; Labour party will win the general election.

“Our party is going to take over Nigeria and bring back the glory Nigeria needs.

“I have been in the corridors of government for the past 20 years. We are here on a rescue mission.

Mr. Ezenwafor said he had what it takes to lead Nigeria to economic freedom, having understudied two former governors in Anambra State and being the chairman of the party in the state.

One of those former governors is Peter Obi, who is the presidential candidate of another faction of the Labour Party.

Mr. Ezenwafor was a former Senior Special Assistant to former Governor Willie Obiano and served under former Governor Peter Obi as his Senior Special Assistant on Political Matters.
