The Labour Party crisis has worsened as a former deputy chairman of the Labour Party (LP), Callistus Okafor has approached the Supreme Court to sack Juluis Abure and Lamidi Apapa and declare him as the authentic chair of the party. Speaking with journalists on Friday, Okafor said the constitution of the LP still acknowledges him as the substantive deputy chairman of the party.

He also said Lamidi Apapa, the acting chair could not emerge in illegality, as his “emergence would have been better if there was no consent judgment”. Okafor added that with the consent judgment, Julius Abure is an illegal LP chairman.

“I am the only acting national chairman of the Labour Party. Every other person parading himself as such is fake. Lamidi Apapa and Abure are both fake,” Okafor said.
