Umar Farouk, national secretary of the Labour Party, has accused Lamidi Apapa, interim national chairman of the opposition party, of disrespecting Peter Obi and making statements critical of the 2023 presidential contender. In an interview, he leveled this charge.
The leader of the Labour Party noted that some unidentified group of people decided to suspend both him and Julius Abure, the party's national chairman, during an interview with Arise TV a short time ago. He continued by saying that only the National Executive Council (NEC) of the party has the authority to suspend Julius Abure.
Speaking further, Umar Farouk disclosed that the individuals who issued the suspension are not legitimate party members, adding that they went on to present a certified true copy of the police investigation report despite the fact that the court did not prevent Julius Abure from acting in a party-related capacity.
In addition, he continued, "I do not see any regard that Apapa has for Peter Obi, someone who has gone to court to publish a statement castigating the presidential candidate, Peter Obi. If he respected Peter Obi, he would have approached him at the time of the crisis and said, "Your Excellency, this is what is happening and this is what we want to do; you don't just go to the media or court and start saying so so people should vacate."
