Non-Members Can Not Suspend Members., Edo State Leadership Dismiss Purported Crisis in Labour Party.


Edo State leadership of the Labour Party has dismissed the purported suspension of the party’s National chairman as a journey to futility, of no consequence and an action of people unknown to the party structure and members.

Edo state chairman, Labour Party, Kelly Ogbaloi in a signed Press Statement issued and made available to Newsmen in Benin City, said “the names credited to have suspended our National Chairman are not known as members of Labour party in Esan East ,Ward 4 and as such do not have the locus for such action.

“The strange names and persons like Martin Osigbemhe, Lucky Shaibu, Iseh Zekeri, Omogbai Faruk, Abokhailu Aliu, Ayohkaire Lateef and Job Elamah are unknown to the leaders and members of the party in the affected area, thus their actions, in whatever form, are nconsequential, null and void which should be disregarded in it’s entirelty by the general public.

Comrade Kelly Ogbaloi described the signatories to the suspension gamble as “faceless people with the sole intention of dragging the name of our party into the mud.”

“We are law abiding people in our Party that is working hard to ensure we build a new Nigeria of our dream, so, these faceless people just want to paint a different narrative which we are not ready to succumb to at this time. No faceless group of people would be allowed to start spreading false statement about our National Chairman after he has put in so much effort to build the Party, we would resist it with all our collective strengths.

According to the State Labour Party, the fabricators of the alleged suspension are not card carrying members and are not known to the party both at State , LGA, and ward levels.

“We have checked the record of our members both at the State and LGA, those names are not in our register. If really, they are our members , why are they afraid to use their real names? Because they know the implication of their action.”

The party however called on the general Public to disregard the fabricated story as it is false and baseless.
