Mr. Julius Abure has been re-elected as the National Chairman of the Labour Party for a second term in office.

Abure was re-elected by the delegates at the party’s National Convention held on Wednesday in Nnewi, Anambra State, in line with the provisions of the Party’s Constitution and INEC guidelines.

He was declared winner by the Chairman of the National Convention and Deputy Governor of Abia State, Mr. Ikechukwu Emetu, despite the opposition of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and its Chairman, Joe Ajaero.

Recall, the Labour Party accused the leadership of the NLC of undue interference in its affairs.

LP specifically asserted that the rascality of the current president of the NLC, Joe Ajaero has destroyed the successes already recorded by the party.

This was following a letter written by the Nigeria Labour Congress Political Commission accusing Abure and the NWC of proposing a ‘secret’ national convention in Umuahia, Abia State capital on March 27 that will re-elect Abure to continue running the Labour Party as a ‘sole administrator.’

The letter accused the leadership of the party of planning a convention without the input of stakeholders.

It also alleged that Abure had in April 2023 tried to extend his tenure in office by two years unilaterally but was stopped at the instance of the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, who insisted that the right thing be done.
