Edo Guber: LP Suspends Caretaker C’ttee Chair Over Misconduct

Respite is not yet in sight for the Edo State chapter of the Labour Party as the crisis rocking the party took a new dimension with the suspension of the Caretaker Committee Chairman, Elizabeth Ativie, over alleged misconduct and insubordination.

The decision was taken on Saturday evening at an enlarged meeting of the State Working Committee (SWC) which was attended by local governments’ chairmen and secretaries of the party. The development is coming less than one week after she was sworn-in as caretaker chairman of LP in the state by the National leadership of the party and the dissolution of the state exco led by Kelly Ogbaloi.

At the meeting, chairman of the LP in Ativie’s Uhunmwonde Local Government, Aghedo Okhiongbamwonyi, said the leadership of Ativie’s ward 4 had handed out the suspension. He then presented a letter dated May 4, 2024, which conveyed Ativie’s suspension to the leadership of the Labour Party in the Local Government.

The letter was endorsed by Charles Usiesefe and Mike Ighile, the ward chairman and secretary respectively. In the letter, the party’s leadership cautioned her to restrain from holding out or parading herself as a member of LP. Also, a letter dated May 30th which affirmed her suspension by the local government was tendered before the enlarged meeting of the SWC.
