The Labour Party (LP) has officially stated that Barrister Julius Abure continues to hold the position of national chairman within the party, News About Nigeria reports.
This announcement was made in response to a recent ruling by the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) State High Court.
The LP has expressed its disappointment with the state high court’s decision to not dismiss the case brought by Lamidi Apapa and others against the Labour Party and Julius Abure.
The party firmly believes that seeking justice through this particular court would be futile.
In a statement released on their official website, the Labour Party made their position clear:
“During today’s proceedings at the FCT State High Court, the presiding judge declined to dismiss the case filed by Apapa and others against the Labour Party and Julius Abure. The judge expressed his intention to proceed with the substantive matter. Further discussions on the case have been scheduled for Friday, May 19.
“However, we are immediately lodging an appeal against this ruling because we have little confidence in the court’s ability to provide us with a fair and just resolution.
“In the interim, Barrister Julius Abure will continue to serve as the National Chairman of the Party until the final verdict is reached.”
The LP’s statement emphasizes their belief that seeking justice within the current legal proceedings would be futile, leading them to exercise their right to appeal the ruling.
They are confident that pursuing alternative avenues will be necessary in order to obtain a fair resolution.
