The National Chairman of the Labour Party, Barrister Julius Abure has assumed office back as the Chairman of the party after they filed a motion of stay at the appeal court today. The appeal court judgment has nullified the Federal High Court order that stops Abure and three others from parading themselves as party executives.
Barrister Julius Abure speaking to the Press stated categorically that there is no faction of the Labour Party. He pointed out that the ex parte granted by the FCT High Court was a restraining order which has been discarded by the appeal court. As the court claimed that the FCT High Court has no legal jurisdiction to hear the matter. He also stated that the Lamidi Apapa had burgled into the Party secretariat illegally after receiving the ex parte order.
He said, ''It is pertinent to state categorically and clear that Labour Party has no faction. Labour Party has only one leader and that leadership is the National Working Committee led by myself, Barrister Julius Abure. Recall that some few members of the party burgled themselves into the office and appointed themselves, four of them, an officers of the party acting on the purported and upon a restraining order, an ex parte order granted by the FCT High Court.
A cursory look at the originating summons which is pending before the high court of the FCT, Apapa and his cohorts asking that court upon granting reliefs on the final judgment to direct the NEC to appoint interim National officers for the party. Out of desperation, they are not patient enough to wait for the outcome of the final judgment but employed self-help and appoint themselves as National officers of the party.''
