Appeal Court sacks Abure as Labour Party’s national chairman
The Court of Appeal in Owerri on Thursday sacked Julius Abure as Labour Party National Chairman.
Also, the court, in the same judgement, recognised Lamidi Apapa as the National Chairman of the party.
The court ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to immediately recognise and publish the names of all the governorship candidates produced by the Apapa-led National Working Committee (NWC) in Imo, Bayelsa, and Kogi states.
The court also dismissed Senator Athan Achonu, the governorship candidate of Imo State and others from the Abure-led faction of the Labour Party.
Recall the Court of Appeal in Benin, Edo State, had on August 14 affirmed Abure as the chairman of LP.
