The Labour Party has said a viral letter signed by the self-acclaimed factional national chairman of the party, Lamidi Apapa asking the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal to dismiss all cases by the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi against the emergence if the All Progressives Congress’ Bola Tibubu, in the February 25 General election did not emanate from the party.
The party made the clarification on Tuesday in a statement issued by its acting National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh.
The statement read in part: “We urged the Tribunal in Abuja to disregard the antics by Apapa, who us a suspended Deputy National Chairman of our party.
“We are by this statement informing all arms of judiciary, including the Tribunals and courts to ignore the ignoble antics of these compromised suspended members of the party.
“We are also calling on the police, DSS and EFCC to arrest these enemies of democracy,” the statement added.
Corroborating the stance of the party, Ifoh spoke on Channels Television’s programme, Politics Today, alleging that Apapa is seeking to jeopardise the victory of Obi with his action.
Ifoh, who later spoke on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme, on Tuesday, alleged that Apapa is seeking to jeopardize Obi’s victory with his action.
