Labour Party Factional Chairman Sets Conditions for Meeting with President-elect

 

Labour Party factional chairman Lamidi Apapa gives condition to meet with Tinubu

 

The Chairman of the Labour Party faction, Alhaji Bashiru Lamidi Apapa, has listed the conditions under which he would meet with the President-elect, Bola Tinubu. Apapa, who has been accused of being a mole planted by opposition groups to scuttle Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi’s petition at the Electoral Tribunal, stated that he would only meet with Tinubu if the party approved it.

In an interview with Arise TV on Thursday, May 18, Apapa said, “Before I honour him, I will consult the executive of the party, so if they ask me to go ahead, I will do so. If the executive says go ahead, it becomes our position. It’s not going to be my position. If they say go and see him or we are going to see him, it becomes the position of the party, not the position of Alhaji Bashiru Lamidi Apapa. All of us will collectively go and see him. That is if we have the mandate of the house, that we are going to see him.”

Apapa’s statement comes after factions loyal to him and Julius Abure engaged in a fracas at the Presidential Election Petition Court in Abuja, disrupting the electoral tribunal hearing Peter Obi’s case against Bola Tinubu and INEC.

The Labour Party has been embroiled in leadership tussles since the presidential election, with two factions laying claim to the party’s leadership. While Apapa leads one faction, Julius Abure leads the other.

The factional crisis has further deepened with allegations of moles planted by opposition groups to scuttle the party’s petition at the Electoral Tribunal. The party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has challenged the results of the presidential election, alleging widespread irregularities and voter suppression.

The party has also accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of colluding with the ruling party to rig the election in favour of Bola Tinubu.

The Labour Party has called for an independent investigation into the allegations of electoral fraud and voter suppression. The party has also demanded the resignation of the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, over his alleged role in the rigging of the election.

The party has vowed to continue its legal battle to reclaim its mandate, despite the challenges posed by the factional crisis and the alleged moles within its ranks.

The crisis within the Labour Party highlights the challenges facing Nigeria’s democracy and the need for reforms to strengthen the electoral process and ensure free and fair elections.

As Nigeria prepares for the inauguration of a new government, it is important for all stakeholders to work together to address the challenges facing the country and promote peace, unity and development.

“Before I honor him, I will consult the executive of the party, so if they ask me to go ahead, I will do so. If the executive says go ahead, it becomes our position.” Apapa told Arise TV.

“It’s not going to be my position. If they say go and see him or We are going to see him, it becomes the position of the party, not the position of Alhaji Bashiru Lamidi Apapa.

“All of us will collectively go and see him. That is, if we have the mandate of the house, that we are going to see him,” he said.

His statement comes after factions loyal to Apapa and Julius Abure engaged in a fracas at the Presidential Election Petition Court in Abuja, disrupting the electoral tribunal hearing Peter Obi’s case against Bola Tinubu and INEC.
