Labour Party issues fresh statement on suspended youth leader, Eragbe Anslem
On Tuesday, the Labour Party warned Nigerians to disregard any directives issued by Eragbe Anslem, who was suspended as National Youth Leader in October 2022.
The position of the Labour Party was outlined in a statement sent to Ejes Gist News Nigeria by its National Chairman, Barrister Julius Abure.
On Monday, Anslem released a statement on his well-known Facebook page in which he introduced himself as the National Youth Leader of the Labour Party. In response to the post, the party stated, “Kennedy Ahanotu remains the acting national youth leader of the Labour Party.”
The full statement reads: “The attention of the Labour Party has been drawn to a statement “NOTICE OF IMPERSONATION BY MR KENNEDY AHANOTU, DEPUTY NATIONAL SECRETARY OF LABOUR PARTY (LP) TO DESIST FORTHWITH” published on Facebook by one Mr Eragbe Anslem.
“Ordinarily, such baseless statements do not deserve our response but for the purpose of guiding our innocent supporters and new members who may be ignorant of Eragbe Anslems’ SUSPENSION, and his continous misleading and controversial attitude.
“Moreso, such statement did not emanate from any of the party’s sanctioned channels of communication with the general public.
“The Labour Party therefore want to make it categorically clear that Prince Kennedy Ahanotu remains the Labour Party’s Acting National Youth Leader based on Party leadership decision in line with our constitution pending the final ratification of the Disciplinary Committee report on Mr Eragbe Anslem.
“We therefore warn the general public to ignore any directive on behalf of the party given by Eragbe Anslem as such is never for the interest of the Labour Party.
“By this announcement henceforth, Labour Party shall not be held accountable for any engagement or transaction officially or unofficially done with Eragbe Anslem.
“Furthermore, every youth oriented communication and engagement or correspondence should be channeled through Prince Kennedy Ahanotu, our Acting National Youth Leader.
“Thanks and God bless you.”
