We Know The Hotels Apapa's Faction Is Staying, They Can't Afford It On Their Own - Labour Party

As the crisis within the Labour Party continues to fester with each passing day, the party's National Executive Council (NEC) has come out to disclose that it has evidence showing that the faction led by its former Deputy National Chairman, Alhaji Lamidi Apapa was being bankrolled by external forces to destroy the party.

While addressing journalists at a press conference on Wednesday, the new Deputy National Chairman, Mrs. Ladi Iliya accused Lamidi and his group of lodging in expensive hotels that they naturally cannot afford unless being funded by outside sources. Going further, the LP chieftain revealed that some persons were also paid as much as five million naira to join the rebelling fact and swell its ranks.

She said; "They have been paid to do their bidding and they are doing it and we are following them. We have seen the hotels where some of them are staying, and they know they cannot afford those hotel accommodations on their own. We know where the so-called acting chairman (Apapa) is staying and it is a shame that after claiming that you were one of those that built the party in 2002, you are part of those again trying to dismantle the party.

We also know there are a few maybe one or two that decided to go on that side because of money. We know that some people were given two million, and others were given five million. How far will such an amount take you, for you to sell your birthright? This is where we belong and I want to say that anybody, be it Secretary or State Chairman that dares to join them, loses his seat immediately."
