Lagos LP: No crisis in our party, disregard impostors

The Labour Party (LP) in Lagos says there is no crisis or faction in the chapter, describing any other group or executives in the state as illegal and unconstitutional.

On Friday, Olumide Adesoyin, a member of the LP, declared himself the leader of the party in the state.

Reacting to the development, Dayo Ekong, Lagos LP chairperson in a statement on Monday by Olubunmi Odesanya, publicity secretary of the party, described Adesoyin and his faction as impostors.

“The general public should disregard Adesoyin’s claim because neither the party’s constitution nor the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) recognises them,” the statement reads.


“The properly constituted Lagos LP exco is still in force and all party activities are still being carried out from the party secretariat situated on No 59, Oduduwa way, GRA, Ikeja. Nigerians should know that there is no faction in the Labour Party, either at the national or state level.

“There is only one legally constitutional and recognised national chairman and secretary of the party in the persons of barrister Julius Abure and Alhaji Umar Farouk, respectively.

“For the sake of clarity, Mr Apapa and his cohorts are suspended members of a national working committee of the party.


“They were suspended via a resolution made at the NEC meeting of the party held at Asaba Delta state on April 18, 2023. A certified true copy of the NEC report of the said meeting is available for anyone to inspect and verify.

“In view of the above, Mr Lamidi Apapa and his co-travellers do not have any power or locus to carry out any function as officers of a party both at national and state level.”

“Nigerians and Lagos residents have seen through this group’s shenanigans and know that the group is playing out a script to justify the pay of their paymasters.

“Labour Party is focused on getting our mandate back. And this is happening sooner than later.”
