Lamidi Apapa, the deputy national chairman (south) of the Labour Party (LP), has declared himself as the acting national chairman of the party.

Apapa made this statement on April 6, shortly after Julius Abure, the national chairman of the LP, alleged that thugs supported by police officers vandalized the party’s headquarters in the federal capital territory (FCT).

Abure claimed that the attack was sponsored by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to destabilize the party, which is challenging the outcome of the presidential election won by Bola Tinubu.

Speaking to Channels Television on Sunday, Apapa denied that he is being sponsored to cause a crisis in the party, stating that he has been a member of the LP since 2002 and has always worked in the interest of the party.

He also said that his actions are in order since a court had asked Abure to step down as the chairman of the party.

Apapa explained that he is not arguing with Abure’s leadership, but he believes that Abure should step down following the court order.

He stated that if the issue has to do with the Labour Party constitution, Abure may be right.

However, when it concerns the laws of the land, the Labour Party constitution does not permit anyone to violate the Nigerian constitution.

He emphasized that since the court had ruled that Abure should not parade himself as the national chairman of the party, he should step aside and let the next person take over.

Apapa, who was once the chairman of the party in Oyo and a gubernatorial candidate of the party in 2007, maintained that he is not fighting for any personal interest, but for the good of the party.

He said that he uses his experience, knowledge, and age to advise the national working committee of the party, and he remains the oldest member of the committee.

It would be recalled that a federal capital territory (FCT) high court had issued an order on April 5 restraining Abure from parading himself as the national chairman of the LP.

However, Abure had ignored the court order and continued to act as the chairman of the party until Apapa declared himself as the acting national chairman.

The LP has been embroiled in a leadership crisis for some time, with different factions claiming the leadership of the party.

The crisis has affected the party’s ability to function effectively, and it remains to be seen how the latest development will impact the party’s future.
