Labour Party reacts to suspension of Party Youth Leader

The Labour Party (LP) has given reasons for the suspension of the National Youth leader of the party, Aragbe Anslem.

Mr Anslem, who was suspended for six months, is a Senatorial Candidate in Edo State.

Briefing journalists in Abuja, the National Publicity Secretary of the Labour Party, Arabambi Abayomi explained that Mr Anslem was involved in misconduct contrary to the party’s Constitution.

According to Mr Abayomi, the suspended Youth leader forged the signature of the National Chairman and National Secretary.

The party also accused the suspended Youth leader of launching a fund mobilisation website to receive funds without the approval of the National Working Committee.

The National Publicity Secretary of the Party stressed that Mr Anslem remained a Senatorial Candidate of the party in Edo State despite his suspension as Youth leader.

Mr Anslem was suspended on October 20 following the submission of the report of misconduct against him by the party’s disciplinary Committee.

Meanwhile, the Acting National Youth leader, Prince Kennedy Ahanotu has charged Nigerian Youths to sustain their support for the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed for the party to become victorious in next year’s General Election.
