Ogun LP calls for a new presidential campaign council in 2023


Members of the Ogun State Labor Party (LP) have urged the immediate replacement of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council.

According to the chapter, the council was run by party leaders from southern Nigeria.

At a news conference in Abeokuta, the LP’s state secretary, Feyisola Michael, asserted that the PCC was hostile to northern interests; as a result, Julius Abure, the LP’s national chairman, won a vote of no confidence.

The North East and North Central regions should have received the director general and general secretary positions currently held by Doyin Okupe and Clement Ojukwu, respectively, because both the LP presidential candidate and the National Chairman are from the South.

This would establish justice and a federal spirit, in his opinion.

The secretary further asserted that Abure was getting ready to conclude Ogun State LP’s legal battle to have INEC relist the candidates on the ballot forcibly.

In light of this, he declared: “We hereby passed a vote of no confidence on Barr. Julius Abure, the National Chairman of the LP; Chief Clement Ojukwu, National Organizing Secretary, who also serves as the General Secretary of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council in place of the National Secretary.

“We also demand that the National Executive Council meeting be called right now in order to prevent future political instability since PDP dissidents Clement Ojukwu and Bar Julius Abure have hijacked the party.

“The immediate dissolution of the entire Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council in order to reflect true Federal Character as enshrined in the constitution and to allow the North East, North Central, National Secretary, and Deputy National Chairman South to all have their constitutional roles openly effected.”
