We’re Not In Alliance With Any Political Party: Kwara Labour Party

They are political jobbers and people should not take them seriously

Kwara state chapter of the labour party has debunked the reported defection of members of the state executive council of the party, saying that the exco is intact.

It would be recalled that some people claimed to be members of the Labour Party, led by Mr Mohammed Ibrahim Ladan who addressed himself as secretary on Thursday announced their defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), citing the development activities of Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq in the past four years in office as reasons for their actions.

However, speaking with journalists in Ilorin at the Labour Party Secretariat on Friday, the state secretary of the party, Mrs Tosin Ogunleye, described members of the party who reportedly defected to the APC as impostors and political jobbers.

Ogunleye, who said that Ladan had been expelled from the Labour Party due to his anti-party activities before her assumption of office as party secretary, added that members of the party are resolute and determined to participate in the Saturday governorship elections to win.

“Members of the state executive of the Labour Party in Kwara state are intact. Nobody has decamped to APC. And a point to note here is that we’re not forming alliance with any other party in this governorship election. All our House of Assembly candidates in all the state constituencies are contesting in the Saturday elections.

“Most of the people that said they’re decamping to the APC or PDP in Kwara state are either our members or impostors. They are political jobbers and people should not take them seriously”. She said

Elizabeth, however enjoined members of the public and especially electorate in the state to be wary of impostors, said that the party was a formidable opposition party in the state.

“Public knows the truth, we are only here to clear the facts and reassured all supporters of the Labour Party that we are here with our integrity intact.

“Some impostors, who happened to be the same set of people,have been going to PDP and APC to extort them for selfish interest.

Speaking further, the Deputy Chairman of the Labour party in Kwara South Engineer Yinka Oladejo, explained that the party is intact and resolute in winning Saturday’s governorship election in the state.

He, however, appreciates the gesture being given to the party as a new bride in the state.

He urges Kwarans to disregard any information of allying with any political parties in the state.

According to him, How can we form an alliance with other parties when our principal, Mr. Peter Obi the presidential candidate of our party is still in court?
