The Labour Party has knocked the self-acclaimed factional chairman of the party, Lamidi Apapa, for making moves to dismiss all cases by his party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi against the victory of Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress in the 2023 election.
This was contained in a statement issued on the party’s website on Tuesday, by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Obiora Ifoh.
The party in its statement, accused Apapa of working for his paymasters to destroy the party.
However, it appealed to the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, to ignore Apapa’s petition and avoid his tricks, which may put the country in turmoil.
The party, which described the self-acclaimed chairman and his subordinates as suspended members of the party, urged the police, DSS and EFCC, to get them arrested, noting that they are enemies of democracy.
“We are by this statement informing all arms of the Judiciary, including the tribunals and courts to ignore the ignoble antics of these compromised suspended members of the party.
“We are also calling on the police, DSS and EFCC to arrest these enemies of democracy.
“Approaching the tribunals to withdraw all the cases lodged by Labour Party candidates across the board is the height of subterfuge and treachery, and Nigerians will resist this ploy to plunge the nation into unnecessary turmoil,” he said.
