Labour Party Removes Ayuba Wabba, Festus Osifo From Presidential Campaign Council, To Release Supplementary List



Wabba and Osifo


A statement released by the Labour Party (LP) stated that the names of labour leaders, Ayuba Wabba and Festus Osifo were erroneously included in the party’s presidential campaign council list.

The list has generated controversy since its release on Wednesday.

In a communique issued at the end of the party’s expanded national working committee (NWC) meeting in Abuja on Thursday, the party’s national chairman Julius Abure said it is set to release a supplementary list for its presidential campaign council.

“It is in the strength of the above that the Presidential Campaign Council has been dully announced with representation across all states, tribes and faith.

“Labour Party hereby announces the endorsement of the Campaign Council; however, we acknowledge some omissions and misplacement of some names in the Council.

“This will be corrected and a supplementary list released before the inauguration of the Council.

“Also corrected is the erroneous inclusion of Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress members in the Campaign list,” he said.

According to him, Labour Party is fully ready to to put all parameters in place to prosecute the election in 2023.

“We also further make it clear that Labour Party enjoys a robust relationship with the new Campaign Council,”
Abure said.

He added that the NWC condemned, in strong terms, the incessant attack on Labour Party members and supporters during peaceful solidarity marches.

This, he said, occurred in Kano, Kaduna, Plateau, Enugu, Ebonyi and Katsina where thugs of other political parties and some nefarious elements of the Ebubeagu vigilante in Imo State and Ebonyi attacked LP members.
