The National Working Committee of the Labour Party has described the suspension of its national chairman, Julius Abure, by the executives of Ward 3, in Arue-Uromi, Esan North- East Local Government, as fake.

The State Working Committee had on May 24, ratified the purported suspension of the party’s national chairman in Benin City.

But reacting to the suspension, the National Working Committee of the party said its national chairman has not been suspended by the executives of the Ward in Edo State.

A statement signed by the national publicity secretary of the party, Obiora Ifoh, said the ward chairman of the party, Thompson Ehiguese, lacked the powers under the constitution of the party to either remove or suspend a national chairman.

Ifoh explained that the chairman of the ward has also in a viral video, debunked the purported suspension insisting that the ward leadership is loyal to the chairman and also very much aware that it lacks the powers under the constitution of the party to either remove or suspend a national chairman.

According to him, the ward, local government or the state have no powers under the constitution to suspend the national chairman.

He said the leadership of the party, is, however investigating the source of the purported letter of suspension and will summarily act in accordance with the party rules in disciplining any officer of the party found guilty of contravening the rules of the party.
