The Labour Party has removed its acting National Publicity Secretary, Abayomi Arabambi and dissolved the Ogun chapter of the party barely two months before the 2023 general elections.

The party’s National Working Committee took the decision on Friday based on alleged anti-party activities of the dissolved executive over the role they played in the expulsion of the Director General of Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Council, Doyin Okupe..

The acting National Publicity Secretary has been relieved of his appointment by the National Working Committee while a disciplinary committee has also been constituted to investigate his anti-party activities as a member of the Labour Party.

“The Ogun State chapter of the party has also been dissolved and the chairman and its exco suspended. A caretaker will be appointed to take care of the party’s activities in the state. They will also be investigated by the disciplinary committee for anti-party activities,” the National Secretary of the Labour Party, Umar Farouk, said.

“The NWC has also unanimously passed a vote of confidence on the leadership of the National Chairman, Julius Abure. Consequently, we call on the party members to adhere strictly to the provision of the Constitution and Code of Conduct of the party.

“We also call on the general public to have more confidence in the party as the leadership of the party is working very hard to ensure that we are not distracted. The bad elements and the Judas among us will be fished out gradually and punished in accordance with the Constitution of the party.”

Okupe and 10 members of the party were expelled by the leadership of the Ogun State chapter of LP over alleged “non-financial membership status, political rascality and misappropriation of funds.”

The affected members were deputy State Chairman II East, Jagun Lookman; state Women Leader, Oluwabukola Soyoye, ex-state Treasurer, Gbadebo Fesomade; state Publicity Secretary, Jide Amusan; state Youth Leader, Abdulmalik Olaleye; Assistant State Youth Leader, Adeshina Shojobi; Senatorial Women Leader Ogun East, Deborah Adewale; Assistant State Secretary, Olatunde Abolade, Abel Olaleye and Abayomi Collins.

Their dismissal was miffed with accusation and counter-accusation by the party’s hierarchy, which saw the National Chairman of the party labelled Obi’s DG sacking as “fake news.”

Abure claimed that the state executives had no locus standi to remove him.
