Ahead of the 2023 general elections, veteran Nollywood actor, Kenneth Okonkwo, has joined the Labour Party.
It would be recalled that the actor turned politician a few weeks ago announced that he had left the ruling All Progressives Congress.
He cited the decision of the party to field a Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket for the 2023 elections as the reason he left the APC.
The film star on Wednesday announced that he is now a member of the Labour Party via Instagram and expressed his readiness to help actualize the presidential ambition of Peter Obi.
“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 to 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.”
