Some candidates of the Labour Party (LP) in the North West have decamped to the All Progressives Congress (APC) and endorsed its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.

The spokesperson of the group, Bashir Ishaq, announced the decision at a news conference in Kano on Sunday.

“As a coalition of LP gubernatorial, senatorial, and House of Representatives and House of Assembly members from the North West, chairmen and members of the campaign council, members of the gubernatorial campaign council in Kano and the north-west and zonal state coordinators, we have decided as a group to unanimously endorse the candidature of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” he said.

“We have also resolved to leverage our existing political structures to work on the mobilization and swinging of votes to ensure his emergence as the president of the federal republic of Nigeria in the 2023 presidential election.

“We shall be known as the Game Changers for Asiwaju/Shettima 2023 and our slogan is ‘swinging votes’.
