JUST IN: LP Suspends Legal Adviser, Women Leader, Others for Anti-Party Activities

The leadership of the Labour Party (LP) has suspended the national legal adviser of the party, the women leader and eleven chairpersons for anti-party activities.

The chairman of LP in Osun State, Comrade Bello Adebayo, who disclosed this, stated that the suspended executives of the party participated in a factional National Executive Council meeting held in Bauchi State.

Adebayo explained that the party could not shy away from the fact that some members of the party have been attempting to take advantage of the crisis at the national level to cause confusion and division in the Osun State Chapter of the Labour Party.

He added that those causing crisis within the party were sponsored to scuttle the weighty petition that the party and its presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi, filed before the Presidential Election Tribunal.

He alleged they intend to create parallel structures at the national level and the states to support the dirty agenda of scuttling the legal struggle of reclaiming the mandate of Obi and Dr Datti Baba-Ahmed in the 2023 presidential election.

His words:

“Among those identified and affected by this decision are; Barr. Samuel Akingbade (National Legal Adviser), Mrs Susan Ojo (State Women Leader) and 11 chairmen of Local Government of our party in Osun State who participated in a meeting organized by the National Legal Adviser and suspended State Woman Leader are hereby suspended from the party indefinitely.

“These members stand suspended for anti-party activities and gross misconduct.

“This decision will be forwarded to the National Working Committee of the Labour Party and other relevant bodies, including all security agencies, for further actions.”
