Labour Party suspends Kenneth Okonkwo and others

 

According to a report by the Sahara reporters, the Labour Party national working committee (NEC) has suspended its presidential spokesman, Kenneth Okonkwo, acting national publicity secretary, Comrade Obiora Ifo and others. 

 

Recall that Lamidi Apapa earlier last week announced the Labour Party NEC meeting for today in Bauchi and invited the presidential candidate of the party, Mr. Peter Obi, the newly Labour Party elected governor, House of Reps, Senators of the party etc.

 

However, today, the national executive council of the Labour Party, suspended 12 of its members, after their NEC meeting under the leadership of Lamidi Apapa.

The suspended members were alleged to have committed anti-party activities and unruly behaviour against the factional party chairman, Alhaji Bashiru Lamidi Apapa. Their offence was said to have been that they issued a statement without the authority of the party.

This is part of the statement.

 

“That the NEC in session also consider the action of 12 of its members namely, Obiora Ifo, Kenneth Okonkwo, Pst. Mrs. Adebayo Ekong, Com. P.G Igene, Engr. Adeola Adebanjo, Pastor Funke Awolowo, Sam Emeka, Okpala, Barr. Folusho Leigh, Folakemi Collins, Comerade Olubunmi Adesanya, Lanre Adenuga and Dr. Olatubosun Oswald for their anti-party activities and unruly behaviour against the party leadership which include issuing statement without authority of the party. The NEC in session, therefore, suspended them from the party.

“The NEC in session, therefore, suspended them from the party.”
