Abure Resumes As LP National Chairman
National Chairman of Labour Party, Julius Abure has resumed office after been restrained by the FCT high court from parading himself as the party’s Chairman
Abure made this known at a world news conference in Abuja.
Abure stressed that earlier restraint by the FCT High Court has been set aside by the party’s appeal at the Appeal Court.
He also revealed that the FCT High Court in Abuja ceases to have jurisdiction over a suit praying for a restraining order over him.
According to the National Chairman, the party is united and has no faction in its rank.
He also emphasized that the suspended Deputy National Chairman of the party, Apapa Lamidi, failed in its attempt to create a faction in the party.
Meanwhile the breakaway group of the Labour Party led by the former Deputy National Chairman, Apapa Lamidi, has accused the National Chairman of the party and other officials of the party of being in romance with the All Progressives Congress. APC
Suspended former National Publicity Secretary, Abayomi Arabambi, stated this at a media briefing that Abure and other party officials use the opportunity of the opposition party as a money minting front to enrich themselves.
Arabambi’s allegation stemmed from a visit on Wednesday to the National Secretariat of the Labour Party in Abuja, by some Senators who were reportedly lobbying across political parties for the position of principal offices of the National Assembly.
The embattled former national publicity secretary had accused Abure, and other party officials of accepting N500 million bribes from the visiting lawmakers, an allegation countered by the National Chairman.
