Sahara media say the Labour Party's NEC has suspended Kenneth Okonkwo, the party's presidential spokesman, along with Comrade Obiora Ifo, the party's acting national press secretary.
You may remember that Lamidi Apapa declared last week that the Labour Party NEC meeting would be held today in Bauchi, and that the party's presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, as well as the newly elected Labour Party governor, House of Representatives, Senators, etc., will all be in attendance.
However, following today's NEC meeting led by Lamidi Apapa, 12 members of the Labour Party have been suspended.
Alhaji Bashiru Lamidi Apapa, the factional party chairman, has accused the suspended members of engaging in anti-party actions and disruptive behaviour. It was claimed that their crime was issuing a statement without the party's approval.
