Abure: Picket all LP offices – NLC orders state chairmen


The Nigeria Labour Party, NLC, has directed its state chairmen to picket secretariats of the Labour Party, LP, across the country.

The directive was given at a meeting held by the Chairmen of all NLC state Councils/Political Commission yesterday.

Their directive followed what they termed the financial rascality and decision of the LP’s National Chairman, Julius Abure, to hold the party’s national convention.

In a statement signed by Titus Amba, Chairperson of NLC Political Commission, and Chris Uyot, Secretary of the NLC Political Commission, the body urged civil societies, traders, students, and professionals “to ensure that the picketing and mobilization are successfully executed.”

The statement reads: “We bring you fraternal greetings from the Nigeria Labour Congress. Sequel to a meeting of the NLC National Political Commission and the leadership of the NLC state Councils and Political Committees which took place virtually on the 19th of March 2024, it was resolved as follows:

“That given the intransigence of the National Chairman of the Labour Party to unilaterally hold a National Convention of the Labour Party, financial rascality and contempt for the leadership of the NLC, the NLC state Councils and state political Committees should mobilise workers to picket all the state secretariat of the Labour Party, scheduled for Wednesday, 20th March 2024.

“In view of the soon to be held all-inclusive national convention of the Labour Party, the NLC state councils and the NLC Political Committees should immediately embark on a nationwide mobilization of workers to join the NLC Political Commission and the Labour Party.”

This follows NLC’s claimed ownership of the Labour Party, while stressing that Abure violated a court order on the ownership of the party.

The NLC Political Commission had described Abure as a “drowning wannabe politricstar.”
