Labour Party Suspends 11 Executive Members For Anti-Party Activities

The Labour Party (LP) in Nasarawa State has suspended 11 executive members for engaging in anti-party activities at the just-concluded governorship and House of Assembly elections.

This was contained in a statement issued in Lafia on Thursday and signed by Mr Alex Emmanuel, Party Chairman and Mr Ashime Benjamin, Assistant State Secretary.

It stated that the suspension was pronounced in conjunction with the national body of the party to stave recurrence.

Report has it that the suspended executive members were state and local government party officials who were allegedly involved in anti-party activities at the March 18 elections.

With reference to a complaint made to LP headquarters dated March 24 and the responses received, we bring to your notice that the suspended members have gone contrary to the party’s Constitution.

They violated Article 19, Part ‘B’ of the Constitution that stipulates disciplinary measures for anti-party activities that lead to embarrassment, contempt, and ridicule of the party,the statement read.

It stressed that the officials endorsed a certain political party at the just-concluded governorship election without recourse to the LP thereby ridiculing the party.

In the build-up to the governorship election, Ewuga stepped down for the PDP candidate and he informed the party and we communicated same to the national body of our great party, the statement also read.
