Akin Alabi, a House of Representatives member, has said that the Labour Party (LP) will not receive more than 15 votes in his polling unit.
Alabi, who represents the federal seat of Egbeda/Ona-Ara, revealed this in a tweet on Saturday.
Pat Utomi, professor of political economy, said in a statement on Friday that LP intends to deploy at least 15 agents to each voting booth in the country to help safeguard votes in the 2023 general election.
“The broad coalition of women, youth, professionals, and intellectuals that has adopted the leadership of the Labour Party and Peter Obi is serving notice that, in addition to its agents, which will number up to 15 in each polling booth in the country, it will use technology to guard Nigerians’ votes in 2023,” Utomi said.
In response to Utomi’s statement, Alabi, an APC member, tweeted on Saturday, “Labour Party will not win 15 votes in my voting unit at Ajiwogbo, Ward 4, Egbeda local government, Ibadan.”
