Kenneth Okonkwo, the Nollywood actor-turned-politician, on Tuesday, joined the Labour Party (LP) — a few weeks after dumping the All Progressives Party (APC).
The film star announced that he is now a member of the LP in a series of posts via his Instagram page on Wednesday.
He also promised to help in actualising the presidential bid of Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the LP.
“It was an honour and a privilege to be welcomed into the Labour Party on the 23rd of August, 2022, at the Supreme God House, Apo, Abuja, by the entire executive of the FCT Labour Party, led by its Chairman, comrade Peter Diugwu, representing the national executive of the Party,” he wrote.
“I feel loved and cherished by the visit of these distinguished officials of this people-centric party to our chambers which culminated in my officially joining the Labour Party as a member.
‘’This will enable me assist in my own humble way to the enthronement of His Excellency, Peter Obi, as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria come 2023 for the good governance of our dear country which is so blessed by God but has been so battered by bad leaders.
“I thank the Dynamics Ambassadors for Peter Obi (DAPO), which I am its National Spokesperson, for facilitating this my membership of Labour Party for the enthronement of good governance in Nigeria.
“I enjoin all citizens of Nigeria to join in this movement for the actualisation of this divine mandate of Peter Obi come 2023.”
Last month, Okonkwo dumped the APC, citing the decision of the party to field a Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket for the 2023 elections.
