Labour Party Reacts To The Suspension Of Nat'l Chairman Julius Abure

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has told the National Chairman of the Labour Party (LP), Julius Abure, to obey court judgement if he wants forgiveness and reconciliation with the union.

This comes after Abure appealed to the NLC for reconciliation over the crisis between them, News About Nigeria reports.

The NLC made the demand barely 24 hours after Abure’s appeal, stating that the union is open to negotiations but Abure must step down as LP chairman for peace to reign.

The reaction was made by the NLC Head of Information, Benson Upah.

He said, “Our issues, concern, and drive are to ensure that the right thing is done, and for the insult by Abure, we don’t care, even though he insulted all of us, called us thieves, armed robbers, and vagabonds.”

Upah said that while the NLC is willing to forgive the insults, they insist that the right and proper thing, as contained in the contempt judgement, be done. “Because nothing can take the place of that,” he added.

Abure had appealed to the NLC President, Joe Ajaero, to put aside his grievances and work together in the interest of the people.

He stated that fighting the Labour Party is uncalled for and unwarranted, especially when the working people of Nigeria are suffering.

The allegations by the NLC against Abure include financial malfeasance, attempting to hold an unauthorised national convention, and that two separate court rulings in 2024 nullified the legitimacy of Abure’s National Working Committee (NWC).

Abure secured his re-election in March, which the NLC referred to as an “illegality” and “brazen impunity!”
