Anambra election: Labour Party suspends chairman

The Anambra chapter of Labour Party, on Wednesday announced the immediate suspension of its chairman, Mr. Uche Ugwuoji.

Ugwoji was accused of engaging in anti-party activities.

The party also axed seven other members for allegedly, “collaborating’’ to endorse the candidature of Governor Willie Obiano of the All Progressives Grand Alliance in the November 18 governorship election.

The LP Publicity Secretary in the state, Mr. Eddy Okoye, announced the suspension at a news briefing in Awka.

He described the action of the suspended members as “selfish, illegal and a demonstration of anti-party behaviour.’’

Okoye named others affected by the suspension as Messrs Ejike Onuora, Alex Obi, Bertram Enukora, Ifeanyi Mbagwu, Greg Mmerube, Longinus Nnajiofor and Okecima Anizoba.

“The Labour Party hereby dissociates itself from the purported endorsement of Governor Willie Obiano by some people masquerading as the party’s executives in Anambra.

“The affected members have been suspended immediately for insubordination, gross indiscipline and anti party activities,’’ he said.

In his reaction, the suspended chairman said the decision of the party was “unfair’’ and dismissed as false the claim that they endorsed Obiano.

“The allegation is not true; we have our own candidate; how can we endorse another party’s candidate?

“This is frivolous, baseless and handiwork of people who want to start another crisis in Labour Party,” Ugwuoji said..
