Arabambi Berates Purveyors of Fake News, Says Michael Ashade Remains Ogun LP Helmsman

The Ogun State chapter of Labour Party has reacted to series of media statements credited to one Tokunbo Peters that the State chapter of Labour Party under the leadership of Michael Ashade has been suspended by the Party’s national working committee of the party.

In a statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary of the Party, Comrade Abayomi Arabambi, it stated that the purported suspension of the State Executive council is an imagination of the purveyors of the fake news as the Labour Party constitution is clear on how to dissolve a State Executive Council.

By this statement we want the general public to be wary of the activities of confusion led by one Jagun as they are not our executive members in the State and cannot act on behalf of the Party in the State.


“So anybody who goes on air and dishes out lies that some members of the Party has been suspended or a State Executive council has been sacked is pursuing an ill-fated journey and their co-travellers, are bound to fail, we hereby called on members of the public not to give the so call Caretaker members attention” he added.

“The general public, and especially the Ogun State Labour Party family, is advised to continue to deal with Micheal Ashade led Executive.’”‘Iwill not want to comment about the false and damaging allegations made against the Ogun State Executive led by Michael Ashade as those matters have already been submitted to a Court of competent jurisdiction.”

“Let me make it clear that the purported suspension is self defeating, dead on arrival and completely invalid.

He said the matter was sub judice, “as it is before a court of competent jurisdiction.

“The Ogun LP views its purported dissolution as a brazen disregard for the judiciary, hence the Nigerian constitution and flagrant abuse of power by the Julius Abure-led National Working Committee.

“The action of the NWC is patently illegal; it is an assault on the LP constitution and outside the bounds of acceptable standards in the conduct of party affairs the world over.

According to him, “We condemn this attempt to foist a faith accompli on the judiciary, undermine its powers and turn it into a toothless bulldog.

The statement urged party faithful in Ogun State to remain calm as “the Micheal Ashade-led LP exco remains in office for the good of our great party.”
