Labour Party Suspends Youth Leader For Alleged Forgery, Others

The leadership of Labour Party (LP) has suspended its National Youth Leader, Anslem Eragbe, for six months over allegations bordering on forgery, opening of an illegal donation website and acts of insubordination.

The national youth leader’s suspension was contained in a letter in Abuja by LP National Secretary, Umar Ibrahim on Friday.

It reads: “You may wish to recall that on the 14th of October, 2022. The National Working Committee of the party met and has among other matters deliberated on the allegations of misconduct labelled against you as the National Youth Leader of the Labour Party. A disciplinary committee was constituted to look into your matter and report to the National Chairman.

Hours after his suspension, Anslem was replaced by Prince Kennedy Ahanotu, who is expected to act as Acting National Youth Leader of the party.

A statement on Friday morning by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Abayomi Arabambi, accused Anslem of forging the chairman’s signature to execute some unofficial tasks and launching of a phoney donation site among others.

Arabambi stated that the need to clarify the suspended youth leader’s ‘alleged misconduct’ claim was necessitated by his denial and innumerable calls received by the secretariat to know his actual ‘sins.’
