The spokesperson of the Labour Party Presidential Council, Dr. Tanko Yunusa has said that the ongoing leadership crisis in the part is targeted at Peter Obi.
Yunusa made this known during an interview on Channels Television monitored by News About Nigeria, on Wednesday.
This comes after a series of back and forths over the party’s leadership, as its National Chairman, Julius Abure and three other national officers were suspended by a High Court in the Federal Capital Territory.
The crisis took a different turn when another High Court sitting in Benin ordered to maintain the status quo which will prevent the suspension of Mr. Abure and the other National officers.
On Thursday, the Nigeria Police Force sealed the party’s National Headquarters over its leadership power tussle among its he post-election crisis in the Labour Party.
He said, “We are at the point of struggling for the soul of Nigeria led by Peter Obi; we are now being meddled and manipulated within the party to challenge the leadership of the party who is at the front of this particular struggle and then leaving credence to other things. I am not alluding that they don’t have a document to prove against Julius Abure; this should be done within the party.
“I had made it clear that the target is beyond the party chairman; it is against our presidential candidate, Peter Obi.”
Also, on Thursday, a factional chairman, Lamidi Apapa has emerged, declaring himself as the new National Chairman of the party while suspending some members.
