We own Labour Party – NLC tackles Abure

Please share

The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Political Commission, has described the Labour Party, LP, National Chairman, Julius Abure, as a “drowning wannabe politricstar.”

NLC said Abure has lost the confidence of most of the critical stakeholders in the party.

The body re-empahsized that the Labour Party belongs to the NLC, while stressing that Abure violated a court order on the ownership of the party.

This was contained in a statement signed by Comrade Titus Amba, Chairperson, NLC Political Commission, and Comrade Chris Uyot, Secretary, NLC Political Commission.

The statement reads: “The laughable, pathetic and incongruous gibberish by Mr. Julius Abure through his hireling would have been completely ignored by the leadership of the NLC Political Commission.

“We, however, have a duty to keep workers and Nigerians focused on the fact that Mr. Abure has severally violated a court judgement and an INEC supervised terms of settlement that mandate an all-inclusive National Convention of the Labour Party.

“While Mr. Julius Abure seeks to evade the fundamental issues raised in our last press release where we demanded for his immediate resignation for convening a National Convention that he had no sole proprietorship over, we wish to remind him that the Nigeria Labour Congress remains the institutional trustees of the Labour Party. This statement of truth is backed by the fact of history, law and court pronouncement. This provides the premise for our demand as a critical stakeholder for Abure’s resignation.

“In the event that Mr. Julius Abure has suddenly developed selective amnesia, we wish to remind him, as stated in our last press release, that a 20th March 2018 judgment by Justice Gabriel Kolawole pronounced that Labour Party is owned by the Nigeria Labour Congress and that an all-inclusive National Convention should be held to right all the wrongs that the likes of Mr. Abure have foisted on the Labour Party for some time now.

“We understand the psychological trauma imposed on an impostor when the owners of the house come knocking. It is not our fault that Mr. Julius Abure has consistently demonstrated lack of respect for court judgements, agreements and more recently contempt for his elders in the labour movement. Clearly, the little coins clanging on the neck of the stray dog appears to have deafened its ears not to hear the whistle.

“Nigerian workers and other stakeholders in the Labour Party have resolved that the Labour Party must be fully recovered and repositioned as a political vehicle for the benefit of sincere and patriotic politicians who are committed to making genuine impact in the lives of ordinary. Nothing will change that. Not a thousand vituperations from a drowning wannabe ‘politrickster’ who has lost the confidence of most of the critical stakeholders in the Labour Party. Nigerian workers have and will always take back whatever is legitimately ours especially with the law behind us.”
