LP state chairmen pass vote of confidence on national chairman

From Usman Abdullai

The national chairman of the Labour Party, Barr. Julius Abure, may have respite as the 36 state Chairmen of the party have passed a vote of confidence on his leadership.

The Chairmen accused the opposition parties of using few bad eggs in the party to  cause disaffection between the party and it’s supporters.

Speaking for the chairmen in Benin, Kwara State LP Chairman, Rotimi Kehinde, said the alleged suspension of Julius Abure  was as null and void because it did not follow the Party Constitution that provides the State Executive Chairmen in Council the power to suspend or pass vote of confidence on the national chairman.

“It is clear that these crop of persons claiming to have suspended the national chairman of our party have long left the party and do not have the right to suspend the chairman.

He said that national chairman has put in so much effort in bringing the party to limelight, adding that they are fully behind him as national chairman until the expiration of his tenure

On his part, the Edo State Chairman, Comrade Kelly Ogbalo alleged that the opposition parties were sponsoring the alleged suspension so as to distract the party from recovering its stolen mandate in the last general election.

“Our presidential candidate, Peter Obi, and the national leadership were working hard to recover their mandate and would therefore not accommodate any distraction from those who want to discredit Labour Party before Nigerians.

Also speaking, the embattled National Chairman  Julius Abure, said the nation’s democracy is undergoing a trial and the judiciary would defend the rule of law.

He explained that the party has resolved to resist all antics to suppress, intimidate and deny the mission to usher in a new Nigeria.

“Today our democracy is on trial but the Judiciary must do everything within its power to defend and preserve it.Democracy was fought for and must be preserved by all lovers of democracy, especially the Judiciary. he said.
