The Labour Party (LP) has raised the alarm on clandestine moves by its estranged deputy National Chairman, Lamidi Apapa to illegally withdraw all pending matters before the various election tribunals including that of it’s Presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

The party’s Acting National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh in a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday urged the judiciary to ignore the ignoble antics of compromised estranged members of the party.

He also appealed to the Department of State Service (DSS), Police and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to arrest the perpetrators of the plot whom he described as enemies of democracy.
Ifoh warned that the embattled group posed a serious threat to the peace and stability of the nation.

The statement listed the perpetrators of the plot to include some of it’s suspended members such as; Samuel Akingbade, Gbenga Daramola, Anselem Eragbe and Abayomi Arabambi erstwhile National Legal Adviser, National Financial Secretary, National Youth Leader and National Publicity Secretary respectively amongst others.

According to the statement; “Their actions show that they are working against the party and that they are working to destroy the party. If they claim that they have problem with the national leadership of the party, will they also claim that they have problem with the candidates of the party?
“What offence have the candidates of the party committed that they are now moving around to withdraw their matters from the tribunal.

“The leadership of the Labour Party is therefore calling on the tribunals to disregard any letter emanating from our suspended National Legal Adviser, Samuel Akingbade with the intent to withdraw all our cases.
We are also calling on the presidential election tribunal to disregard such letters from these ex officials of our party asking for the withdrawal of Peter Obi’s petition.

“We also call on the Police, DSS and EFCC to quickly apprehend and question these agents of destruction before they succeed in igniting the nation.”
