LP Crisis: Group Calls On Abure To Resign While Ovation Is Loudest

The Conference Of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP) has called on the National Chairman of the Labour Party(LP), Barr Julius Abure to resign now that the ovation is loudest.

In a statement released on Sunday by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, James Ezema praised the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for defying apparent pressure to use its personnel to support the results of the party’s recent, contentious fractional national convention.

Lauding the electoral umpire for distancing itself from the party’s convention held in Nnewi in Anambra State, the CNPP said INEC had done well for the sake of advancing democracy by defying clear pressure to use its officials to endorse the outcome of the convention.


The nation’s umbrella organisation for all legally recognised political parties and political associations’ reaction is coming in light of the evident lack of internal democracy in the majority of political parties in Nigeria.

The statement said, “Therefore, we call on Barrister Julius Abure to make himself the hero in the crisis by tendering his immediate resignation as the National Chairman of the party.”
