The Labour Party on Monday, April 24, 2023, disowned the former youth leader of the party, Mr. Anselem Eragbe
Disowning Aselem, through a statement issued by the Party’s acting National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Obiora Ifoh, in Abuja on Monday, LP warns that he can no longer speak on behalf of the party.
The statement read in part, “The attention of the party has been drawn to a series of letters emanating from the former National Youth Leader, Anselem Eragbe, addressed to different groups and media organizations.
“In the last few days, Eragbe has churned out several press releases attacking the activities of the party, particularly as it concerns the ongoing court cases.
” We have it on good authority that Eragbe has been heavily compromised to work against the interest of the party in our efforts to reclaim the mandate given to the party at the last presidential election.”
The Secretary, also alleged that Eragbe had been trying to mislead Nigerians about the actual circumstance of the party.
He stated that Eragbe’s allegation of forgery, leveled against the national chairman of LP, is already in court, as a date has been fixed for the determination of the matter.
He added that if Eragbe was certain about his claims, he should prove his allegations in court.
