2023: Labour Party’s Retired General Lincoln Ogunlewe Joins Imo Guber Race



Major General Lincoln Ogunlewe (retd) has thrown his hat in the ring for the 2023 gubernatorial election in Imo State on the platform of the Labour Party.

He made the declaration when he addressed Labour Party members at his residence and at Okpofe Town Hall in Ezinihitte Mbaise LGA of Imo State.

He stated that as a retired general of the Nigeria Army, he has the requisite qualification and leadership experience to advance good governance to better the fortunes of the people who he added suffered untold hardship, poverty, and insecurity caused by bad governance, greed, hatred, ungodliness, wickedness, and incompetence.

According to him: “I came to start from home. This is my first meeting with you. I’m here to tell you that I’m a strong member of the Labour Party who is fully supporting the party’s Presidential and Vice Presidential Candidates Peter Obi and Yusuf Datti.


” I want to declare my aspiration for the Imo State governorship election under Labour Party in the 2023 election. I’m into the governorship race to tackle infrastructure and empowerment issues that debilitate the state, its citizens, and strangers alike. Because government is a catalyst for positive social and economic change.

“I promise to champion pure development, create viable employment, encourage agriculture, standardize quality and affordable education, and enhance commerce and industry to better the lives of our people”.

Imploring the people to vote wisely for Peter Obi and his running mate and other candidates of the Labour Party in the election to enable them to win and meet their needs, Ogunlewe told the people to discard fear, anti-party activity, describing the Labour Party as mass oriented geared towards restoring the lost glory of the state and the punctured dignity of the people.

Also speaking, Prof. Orikeze Ajumbe, urged the people to embrace the revolution spreading across Nigeria for total transformation and liberation.


Ajumbe, who recently dumped the ruling APC for LP, affirmed: “Major General Lincoln Ogunlewe is going to be the next governor of Imo State. He is coming to reset Imo State. So, support him wholeheartedly, and vote for him to enable him to become governor. He will not disappoint you because he is a good man with a deep fear of God and a love for humanity.”

Earlier in their separate speeches, the Labour Party Ward 12 Chairman, Nnamdi Nwogu, and LGA Chairman of Ezinihitte Mbaise, Martin Ikpeoha, said the party heartily welcome Ogunlewe into the party, as they endorsed his gubernatorial aspiration in 2023, charging the members of the party to remain strong and committed in the movement, saying nothing would stop Peter Obi, Yusuf Datti and other candidates from emerging victorious in the forthcoming poll.
