BY Ahmad Sahabi


The Labour Party (LP) in Nasarawa has suspended 11 executive members over alleged anti-party activities during the March 18 governorship and state assembly polls.

Alex Emmanuel, Nasarawa LP chairperson, and Ashime Benjamin, assistant secretary, in a statement on Thursday, said the suspended members supported another party, thereby “ridiculing” the LP.

They said the suspension of the members is in conjunction with the national leadership of the LP.

“With reference to a complaint made to LP headquarters dated March 24 and the responses received, we bring to your notice that the suspended members have gone contrary to the party’s Constitution,” the statement reads.


“They violated Article 19, Part ‘B’ of the Constitution that stipulates disciplinary measures for anti-party activities that lead to embarrassment, contempt, and ridicule of the party.

“In the build up to the governorship election, Ewuga stepped down for the PDP candidate and he informed the party and we communicated same to the national body of our great party.”

Those suspended are Dahiru Abubakar, secretary of the party; Hajara Dalhatu, women leader of the party; Musa Doma, treasurer of the party; Muhammad Aliyu, Lafia LGA chairman of the party.


Others are the party chairpersons in seven LGAs of the state.

The LP has set up a five-member committee to investigate the activities of the suspended members.
