The Former Labour Party Chairman in Lagos State, Mr Olukayode Salako has reacted to the ongoing crisis rocking the Labour Party, noting that the presidential candidate of the party, Mr Peter Obi and the embattled National Chairman of the party, Julius Abure cannot say that they do not know who Lamidi Apapa is.
Speaking further, he noted that Lamidi Apapa has been very loyal to Julius Abure, stating it clearly that Mr Apapa has never struggled power with Julius Abure, demanding to know why he is doing so now.
Mr Salako made this disclosure when he was interviewed on TV on Saturday afternoon, claiming that what is happening now in Labour Party is as a result of misunderstanding between these individuals.
Furthermore, he made it known that Lamidi Apapa is a founding member of the Labour Party, stating that Lamidi Apapa has been with the Labour Party since the party was formed in 2002 and that Apapa has never joined any political party since then.
In addition, he demanded to know why people often see Mr Apapa as a mole in a party he has spent over 21 years and after working with Julius Abure over a long period of time.
