A’Court sacks Abure, affirms Apapa as LP National Chairman

2 min read

The Court of Appeal in Owerri, Imo State, on Thursday, sacked Comrade Julius Abure, and recognised Mr. Lamido Apapa as the National Chairman of the Labour Party (LP).

The court also ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to immediately recognise and publish the names of all the governorship candidates produced by the Apapa-led National Working Committee in Imo, Bayelsa, and Kogi States.

The court also dismissed the governorship candidature of Senator Athan Achonu of Imo State, and others belonging to the Abure-led LP faction.

In April, Apapa said his suspension as a member of the party was invalid, noting that he remained the “legitimate acting chairman”.

On 14th August, it was reported that a Court of Appeal sitting in Benin City, Edo State capital, affirmed Abure as the LP National Chairman. This was disclosed in a statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Obiora Ifoh.

On 26th May 26, it was reported that a High Court in Edo State dismissed the notice of suspension issued against Abure by some party members at the ward level. The judge, Justice Emmanuel Aihamoje threw out the case for lacking merit.
