The leadership of the Labour Party on Wednesday warned that it will no longer tolerate any ‘destructive criticism’ of its National Chairman, Julius Abure, from its members and supporters of the Obidient Movement.
The warning was a response to calls from some aggrieved Labour Party members and stakeholders of the party for Abure to resign following an allegation of corruption levelled against him.
Recall that the members in a petition which went viral some days ago, was jointly signed by Labour Party elder, Diokpa Ajufo; member of Obidient Movement, Zariyi Yusuf; representative of Advocate For A New Labour Party, Dr Peter Piper; leader of Obidient Diaspora, Tony Asekome and member of Obidient Movement and Advocate For A New Labour Party, Prof Chris Nwaokobia Jnr.
Issuing the warning on Wednesday, the National Publicity Secretary of LP, Obiora Ifoh, warned the aggrieved members and the ‘various bodies they represent’ to desist from denigrating the party’s national chairman.
The spokesman also disowned them, saying the signatories were not genuine card-carrying members of the party.
