High Court In Abuja Has No Jurisdiction To Order Abure To Stop Functioning As LP Chairman - Okonkwo

Spokesman of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council, Kenneth Okonkwo, has described his suspension by the Lamidi Apapa faction of the Labour Party as a joke which is illegal.

According to Kenneth Okonkwo, the order of the Federal High Court in Abuja which demanded that Julius Abure should stop parading himself as the National Chairman of the Labour Party should not stand because the court lacks jurisdiction.

Kenneth Okonkwo noted that the Supreme Court had previously ruled that it is the court which is found where a dispute occured that has the Jurisdiction to entertain a case about such a dispute.

Kenneth Okonkwo said that since the Julius Abure issue started in Edo State, it is the court in Edo State that has the Jurisdiction to rule on whether Julius Abure is suspended or not. According to Kenneth Okonkwo, a court in Edo State had already ruled that nobody should remove Julius Abure as the National Chairman of the Labour Party and as such, the party is working with the decision of the Edo court.
