Former spokesperson of the defunct Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, Daniel Bwala, has claimed that Peter Obi is considering leaving the Labour Party to join forces with former Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai in the Social Democratic Party (SDP) amidst ongoing tensions between the Labour Party and the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC).

In a post on his official X account on Friday, Bwala made this allegation and linked the latest development to the ongoing dispute within the Labour Party.

 The Labour Party and the country’s labour union have been in conflict over the demand for the removal of the party’s national chairman, Julius Abure.

Addressing the discord, Bwala implied that Obi might team up with El-Rufai in the SDP as the Labour Party works to oust the current national leadership led by Abure.

He wrote, “BREAKING-Peter Obi @PeterObi allegedly planning to unite with El-rufai @elrufai in Social Democratic Party as Nigerian Labour Congress set to take ownership and custody of their political party, the @NgLabour . Recall that there was a judgment of court that states that Nigeria Labour Congress owns Labour Party. NLC is now prepared to take custody of that party. Twist and turns in the coming days. But all that will not give sleepless night to @officialABAT who himself has his magic wands to wield.”
