The leadership of the Labour Party (LP) says Julius Abure is still the national chairman.

Farouk Umar, national secretary of the LP, in a statement on Friday said some unknown faces who claimed to be members of the Edo chapter of the party at a press conference in Abuja announced the suspension of Abure as the chairman.

Umar said the suspension of Abure was illegal, noting that the recognised members of the Edo chapter of the party were not those who attended the press conference.

“The attention of the leadership of the Labour Party was called to the press conference held today Friday, 31st March 2023 by some unknown faces assembled in one room in Abuja wherein they pronounced a suspension on our National Chairman, Barrister Julius Abure,” the statement reads.


“They also made some spurious allegations against him which are untrue and concocted by the sponsors of the Press Conference. We however deemed it fit to make some responses.

“The young men we saw on that visuals are apparently not anybody from Labour Party in Edo state as claimed.

“The executives of the party in the state, local government and my ward are well known to the party.


“None of them were at the press conference. We make bold to say that they are people assembled and rented from some Abuja slums and paid to read a prepared speech given to them.

“Again, our party constitution is clear on who can suspend and who cannot suspend the national chairman.

“They should go and read the party constitution. It is only the National Convention that can suspend the national chairman of the Labour Party.

“It also must be through such a convention called for the purpose of the suspension of the national Chairman.”
