LP crisis: We’ll account for all donations received during presidential election – Peter Obi


The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, in the 2023 election, Peter Obi, has assured that his campaign team would account for the donations received during the last poll.

Obi said the Obi-Datti campaign team has commenced public accounting of the funds received during the 2023 presidential election.

This is coming after the suspended National Treasurer, Oluchi Opara, accused the party’s National Chairman, Julius Abure, of misappropriating N3.5 billion.

Abure, however, denied the allegations, while threatening legal actions against Opara.

However, Obi posted on X: “Yesterday, we commenced the public accounting process for Obi-Datti Campaign Funds for the 2023 general election, starting with the crowdfunding, which was where we asked the general citizens to contribute to our endeavour.

“This process was managed by a Team led by @AishaYesufu. We will go from that to other processes, ensuring that we account to those who supported us either in cash or in kind to assure them that their contributions were properly used for the purpose which it was sought for and they graciously, and in some cases, immeasurably supported us.

“We will also be directing various support groups and bodies that worked for our collective goal of birthing a New Nigeria to do the same by accounting to those who donated to them.

“In addition, as I said immediately after the Supreme Court judgement, that this year 2024, beginning from the end of first quarter, we are going to embark on a Thank You tour to the various places we have been to, in order to physically appreciate our supporters.

“We will also show our donors the very visible success we achieved by the judicious management of their resources despite having less than 20 percent of our budget to work with.

“The generous support of our donors and their unwavering dedication and commitment to the democratic process, which we are committed to, have not gone unnoticed. Despite the challenges and obstacles that came our way, they stood strong and played a crucial role in shaping the future of our nation.”
