In a recent interview with Arise News, Lamidi Apapa, the acting chairman of the Labour Party, strongly refuted allegations of receiving any financial support from the opposition party.
He categorically denied being sponsored by any opposition party to undermine the stability of the Labour Party, dismissing such claims as attempts to tarnish his reputation. Addressing the accusation that he wrote a letter against Peter Obi's petition in the tribunal, Apapa asserted that the letters were not authored by him and clarified that he has not written any letters to any tribunal in the country.
Earlier, Kehinde Edun, the Labour Party's national legal adviser, had claimed in an interview with Channels Television that Lamidi Apapa and his associates were being financially backed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to disrupt the Labour Party.
Edun also alleged that Apapa moved a motion to dismiss Peter Gregory Obi's petition against the victory of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate, at the tribunal, arguing that Obi is not a member of the Labour Party and therefore not qualified to be the party's presidential candidate.
Challenging his accusers, Apapa called on them to provide substantial evidence to substantiate their claims of sponsorship against him and the Labour Party. He confidently urged people to disregard the rumors, emphasizing that they are the result of a malicious campaign aimed at defaming him.
