The Director of the Organization for Peter Obi’s 2023 presidential campaign, Sina Fagbenro-Byron, has abandoned the 2023 Labour Party (LP) Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi to join the All Progressives Congress (APC).

All politics is local and the APC, well-accepted and trusted in my locality, offers a platform that resonates with the vast majority of my immediate constituency.”
