The National Secretary of the Labour Party, Alh. Umar Farouk has stated that the Ogun State Chapter of the party lacks the constitutional right to remove the Director General of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council, Doyin Okupe, and 10 other members of the Party.
Reacting to the explosion of Doyin Okupe, Farouk during a press briefing in Abuja on Friday stated the members of the party who took part in the alleged expulsion did not have the constitutional right to carry out the such duty.
He said, “The Ogun State Chapter acted outside its constitutional jurisdiction”.
Also, he stated that the party is not also unaware of the moves by members of the opposition to infiltrate the party’s structure at all levels.
While urging members of the Party and Nigerians to disregard the propaganda, he also assured them that the Party will intensify its efforts to ensure that the party’s unity is not tampered with.
It would be recalled that the alleged expulsion of the affected LP chieftains was announced by some leadership of the Ogun State Chapter of the party at a briefing held in Abeokuta on Thursday.
