Labour Party In Ogun, ALSO In Crisis

Labour party in Ogun is also in crisis.

The Labour Party in Ogun State has recommended that eight executive members of the party including the former Acting National Publicity Secretary, Abayomi Arabambi; the state chairman, Michael Ashade, and six others be expelled from the party.

The recommendation for expulsion was made known through a press statement that was issued by the state publicity secretary of the party, Tokunbo Peters, stating that the recommendation was due to various alleged anti-party activities carried out by the affected executive members of the party.

Peters said the recommendation had been communicated formally to the National Secretariat of the party last week.

He said Arabambi and Ashade were recently suspended by their wards and Local Government Areas executive members in the state and were later recommended for expulsion from the party by the state Exco of the party.

The statement read that others recommended for expulsion were; Feyisayo Michael, Tosin Meadows, Seun Ogunyemi, and Lizzy Oliseh-Samuel who were former State Secretary, State Organising Secretary, State Auditor and State Financial Secretary respectively.

He said that their suspension and recommendation for expulsion, which was communicated formally to the national secretariat of the party last week was premised on various anti-party activities engaged in by Arabambi, Ashade and their cohorts to destabilise, factionalise and bring the party into disrepute by acting as sponsored agents of the ruling All Progressives Congress.

“The suspension and recommendation for the expulsion of Mr Arabambi, Ashade and their cohorts was made known today in a statement released in Abeokuta by Tokunbo Peters, Publicity Secretary of the party in Ogun state.

“The statement further disclosed that before their eventual suspension, several warnings and cautions were given to make them refrain from their anti party activities, especially through a peace and reconciliatory meeting which was mediated by a frontline elder statesman.

“But rather than turn a new leaf, Arabambi and his cohorts became more recalcitrant and belligerent to satisfy their paymasters in the ruling APC.

“The party under the able leadership of both Peter Obi and Julius Abure, presidential candidate and National Chairman respectively, is now firmly in the grips of committed professionals and conscious youths, who have now repositioned the party as a formidable force in Nigeria and therefore can now favourably compete for all elective political offices in the country.

“The party admonished the Inter-Party Advisory Council in Ogun state to desist from relating with Michael Ashade and his cohorts, as they no longer hold any executive positions in the Labour Party.”
