Labour Party Denies Endorsing Jonathan


The Labour Party, on Tuesday denied endorsing President Goodluck Jonathan as its presidential candidate for the 2015 general elections.

National Chairman of the party, Abdulkadri Abdulsalam made this known in an interview in Abuja. He described the reports as baseless  rumours.

Although the party has not announced any presidential candidate, the national chairman said this was because no credible candidate with the capacity and capability to compete for presidency had emerged from the Labour Party.

“The party has not endorsed anybody; if we want to endorse anyone as a presidential candidate, we must hold a convention where we will collectively and democratically agree,” Abdulsalam said.

“No credible candidate has spoken with us for endorsement; the information going round that we have endorsed Jonathan must be considered as rumour.

“Whatever is our intention to endorse any presidential candidate will be made known because we will definitely meet and endorse who ever we want as a presidential candidate,’’ he said.
