Labor Party Threatens To Boycott Upcoming Ebonyi LG Election

Listen to article

The Ebonyi State chapter of the Labor Party has threatened to boycott the forthcoming local government election in the state, stressing that it’s a one-party activity.

Mr. Splendour Oko-Eze who is a Chieftain of the party, made this known while speaking with newsmen shortly after a meeting with party members at the San Diego Hotel in Abakaliki.

According to him: “Local government election in Nigeria, as it is today, is known to be selection, not an election.

Labour Party will not take part in such a selection activity. We in the National Transition Committee have already started the process of repositioning the party in the country and Ebonyi State is not left behind.”

Meanwhile, the Presidential candidate of the Labor Party in last year’s election, Mr. Peter Obi, has dismissed the attempt by the party to create a directorate for the ‘Obidient Movement.’

Obi specifically emphasized that the ‘Obidient Movement’ is not a directorate of any particular political party.

The Eastern Updates recalls that the Labor Party had appointed eight people to pilot the affairs of the ‘Obidient’ Directorate.

The party described the appointment as part of its repositioning efforts towards integrating millions of Nigerian youths, particularly the ‘Obidient’ family, into the larger family of the party.

However, in a statement on Wednesday via his X handle, the former Anambra State Governor insisted that the ‘Obidient movement’ is far beyond a particular political party.

According to him, it’s a diverse and inclusive collective that transcends traditional political, religious, and ethnic affiliations.
