Suspended Labour Party chairman Abure re-instated by NLC amidst tight security

 

 

The leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress, or NLC, led a delegation of labour unions to reinstall Julius Abure, the Labour Party’s controversial national head, on Monday despite contradicting court rulings.

 

 

In doing so, NLC President Joe Ajaero affirmed that the party’s success was luring impostors who were determined to derail it in any way. He said that the working class will oppose this effort.

Ajaero also threatened that Nigerian workers might be compelled to occupy the residential homes of suspected impostors, some of whom orchestrated the suspension of Abure as national chairman of the party.

 

News Week Nigeria recalls that a Federal High Court, sitting in Abuja, had ordered Abure to stop parading himself as the national chairman of the party a week after a ward in the Edo State chapter of the party suspended him over alleged anti-party activities.

 

 

Shortly after the court order, the party’s national vice chairman, Lamido Bashir Apapa, who had been accused of being sponsored by the opposition parties, took over the party in an acting capacity.

But in another twist, a High Court in Benin gave a counterorder, restraining anybody from removing the embattled party chairman from his office.

 

 

Ajaero, who was accompanied by the NLC General Secretary, Emmanuel Ugboaja, TUC leaders and other labour leaders as well as hundreds of workers, to the secretariat, said as trustees of the party, nobody is mandated to occupy any position in the party without their consent.

 

Ajaero said: “Today, we have come to say enough is enough. Never again will those imposters enter here, under any guise, under any order. Even if we lose our leadership, we have to meet as trustees of this Labour Party to decide the next line of action.

“For anybody to illegally declare himself either as chairman, secretary or whatever, we urge all workers anywhere in the country, where you see such people, arrest them and bring them to us. The hour has come.”

 

He also added: “As the fastest-growing party, you can see that envy, jealousy is creeping in. The people that are pioneering this, to sabotage us, let’s announce here that we know your fathers. If you continue this way, we will go after your fathers.”
