LP dissolves party executive in Rivers state

Three days to the governorship and State Houses of Assembly elections, the Labour Party National Working Committee, NWC, has dissolved the Executive Council of Rivers State with immediate effect, for gross anti-party activities.

The Party in a statement by the National Chairman of LP Mr Julius Abure, says the resolution was reached after an emergency meeting on Tuesday, in Abuja.

 According to the Statement the decision was in the interest of the Labour Party and the Obidient movement in Rivers State.

 Mr Abure explains that those who were at the helm of affairs in Rivers State when the 2023 presidential election was held should step aside until full investigation on what happened during the Presidential election in Rivers State is completed.

The LP  says the party has lost confidence in the ability of the compromised State Executive Council led by Mr Deinye Pepple, to lead the campaign for the Governorship and State House of Assembly elections come March 11th. 

The National Working Committee urges all Obidients in Rivers State to disregard every comment made by the dissolved State Chairman of the Party, Deinye Pepple, on the election of March 11th.
