Labour Party rallies: Starting first doesn’t mean victory – David Umahi
According to the governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, Peter Obi's win in the 2023 presidential election cannot be assured by the Labour Party's early, successful rallies, which started on October 1 across the nation.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate announced that his party will soon start holding rallies and mobilising around the country.

There are still many months left for campaigning before the presidential election, according to the governor, who is also the South-East Chairman of the APC presidential campaign, and there is no need to panic over the APC Presidential Campaign Council's delayed inauguration.

Umahi said this on Monday when he featured as a guest on a Channels TV programme.

He said this in his reaction to questions on the massive rallies of Obi’s supporters popularly known as ‘Obidients.’

Umahi said, “We have many months to elections and we have many months to campaign. The first to start does not translate to the first to finish. So, the APC is a bank and they are coming up with programmes. It will soon happen.

Speaking on what he meant by that APC is a bank, the governor clarified that the ruling party is a bank “in terms of mass mobilisation, in terms of acceptability.”

APC had published a 422-man Presidential Campaign Council list and slated inauguration for September 28 but postponed it indefinitely.
