We Appealed Apampa' Ruling Immediately Because We Know We Will Not Get Justice from the Court-Obiora

Following a recent ruling by the Federal High Court in Abuja, which declared Lamidi Apampa as the acting national chairman of the Labour Party, the party's legal counsels have swiftly appealed the decision. Obiora Ifoh, the Acting National Publicity Secretary of the party, expressed doubts about obtaining justice from the court and emphasized their commitment to pursuing a fair resolution through the appeals process.

Apampa, who assumed the role of acting national chairman after the suspension of Julius Abure, received the court's ruling with satisfaction, asserting his authority over the party. However, Ifoh cautioned against misinterpreting the ruling as a substantive judgment, asserting that Abure remained the legitimate national chairman until a final decision was reached.

Ifoh further denounced Apampa's faction, accusing them of misleading the public and expressing their lack of confidence in the judicial process. He stressed that their decision to appeal the ruling was driven by the belief that justice would not be served in the lower court.

Meanwhile, Abure, the suspended chairman, also expressed his intent to appeal the ruling, insisting that the court lacked jurisdiction over the matter. He voiced his determination to transfer the case to the Court of Appeal, expressing confidence in obtaining justice there. Abure criticized Apampa and the factional National Publicity Secretary, Abayomi Arabambi, for their alleged role in destabilizing the party.

The Labour Party has been embroiled in internal conflicts, with deep-rooted divisions that have escalated into a full-blown crisis. Abure attributed the current predicament to the actions of Apampa and Arabambi, whom he accused of being motivated by external interests rather than the party's welfare.

Despite the challenges, Abure reassured party members of his leadership and commitment to defending their cases in court. He called for unity and urged members to disregard the faction led by Apampa and Arabambi, claiming they were being influenced by external forces.

As the appeals process unfolds, the future of the Labour Party hangs in the balance. The party's leaders remain resolute in their determination to seek justice and uphold the integrity of the organization, regardless of the hurdles they face.
