Olumide Akpata, former president of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), has confirmed that he is a member of the Labour Party (LP).

Akpata was the 30th president of the professional body. He is also a partner at Templars, an African law firm.

In a series of tweets on Tuesday, Akpata said he joined the party in March 2023 to provide solutions to Nigeria’s problems. 

“Yes…I joined the Labour Party in March this year and on Sunday I attended my first ward meeting at Oredo Ward 6, in Benin City, where I was formally introduced to members of the ward and presented with my party membership card,” he said.


“This was a major step for me and not one that I took lightly…but I simply got tired of complaining about Nigeria every day and bemoaning her fate and I decided to take the plunge and to try to be part of the solution rather than agonising continually over the problem.”

LP experienced a renaissance after Peter Obi, former governor of Anambra, joined the party on May 27, 2022 – less than a year before the 2023 presidential election.

As a result of this rebirth, Alex Otti of Abia won the party’s only governorship seat.


The party also won 36 seats in the house of representatives and eight in the senate.
