The Labour Party (LP) in Ogun State has called for the party’s presidential campaign council to be immediately dissolved, claiming that party leaders from the southern region of Nigeria dominate the council.
The party also adopted a resolution of disapproval for Julius Abure, the Labour Party’s national chairman.
The State Secretary of the LP, Mr. Feyisola Michael, claimed during a press conference in Abeokuta that the PCC was being “southernized” against the interests of the north.
Michael contends that since the National Chairman, Obi, and the LP presidential candidate are both from the South, the North East and the North Central regions should have been granted the director general and general secretary positions currently held by Doyin Okupe and Clement Ojukwu, respectively.
According to him, doing so would reflect fairness and the constitution’s definition of the federal character.
The Ogun State LP’s lawsuit seeking a court order on INEC’s relisting of candidates was also illegally terminated, according to the state chapter of LP, which also accused Abure of this.
According to him, Abure planned to take over the current Federal High Court case from Bar Mawah Monday, the legal adviser for the state of Ogun.
“Accordingly, we have passed a vote of no confidence on Barr. Julius Abure, the National Chairman of the LP, and Chief Clement Ojukwu, the National Organizing Secretary who also serves as the General Secretary of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council rather than the National Secretary.
“We also demand that the National Executive Council meeting be called right away in order to prevent further political unrest because PDP dissidents Clement Ojukwu and Bar Julius Abure have hijacked the party.
In order for the North East, North Central, National Secretary, and Deputy National Chairman South to be able to openly carry out their constitutional roles, he urged the immediate dissolution of the entire Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council.
