The Labour Party (LP) has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of being fearful of the inauguration ceremony of President-elect Bola Tinubu at Eagle Square. The LP made this statement through its Acting National Publicity Secretary, Pastor Obiorah Ifoh. The LP also claimed that the APC has found allies in the likes of Lamidi Apapa and Abayomi Arabambi, Factional National Chairman of the LP and the National Secretary respectively.
The LP refused to engage in a war of words with the expelled former acting National Publicity Secretary of Labour Party, Abayomi Arabambi, and the suspended Deputy National Chairman, Lamidi Apapa. The LP deemed their narratives on the ‘May 29 handover’ to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as mischievous. The LP stated that they were declared the winner of the presidential election by INEC.
The LP’s statement implies that the APC is worried about the inauguration ceremony of President-elect Bola Tinubu, and that they have found allies in the LP’s factional leaders. The LP refused to engage in a war of words with the expelled and suspended members of their party who have been spreading mischievous narratives about the ‘May 29 handover’ to INEC’s declared winner of the presidential election.
The statement reads in part: “Apapa’s group visible love for Tinubu and their statement on ‘swearing in’ reflecting the ‘Hand of Esau, Voice of Jacob’
“We had refused to join issues with the expelled former acting National Publicity Secretary of Labour Party, Abayomi Arabambi and the suspended Deputy National Chairman, Lamidi Apapa on their mischievous narratives of the ‘May 29 handover’ to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC’s declared winner of the presidential election. The Labour Party actually do not want to comment on the matter which hearing has since commenced at the presidential appeal tribunal.
“In all Peter Obi’s public and private statements, he has never said or by implication, insinuate that May 29 should be shifted. He is a Democrat and he is one person that believes so much in the judiciary as the last arbiter, and that is why he has resorted to the court to seek justice.”
“Having said that, we are perturbed by the mouthpiece with which the All Progressives Congress, APC chose to express their fears. The possibility of not making it to Eagles Square on the 29th May has continued to give them both sleepless nights and migraine, and has pushed them into deploying an already compromised and fallen members of the Labour Party, led by Apapa and Arabambi as their compere to sing a song danced only by themselves.”
In conclusion, the LP’s statement suggests that there is tension between the APC and the LP, and that the LP is not willing to engage in a war of words with the expelled and suspended members of their party. The LP also claims that they were declared the winner of the presidential election by INEC.
