Resign as NLC President to contest chairmanship, your rascality destructive – LP fires back at Ajaero

Joe Ajaero

The Labour Party has charged the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Joe Ajaero, to resign and contest for the chairmanship position of the party if he’s interested.

LP’s National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, said Ajaero’s rascality had destroyed the successes already recorded by the NLC.

Ifoh was reacting to a letter written by the NLC Political Commission, the political wing of the NLC, calling for the suspension of the planned convention of the Labour Party in Umuahia, Abia State.

The NLC Political Commission also asked the National Chairman of the party, Julius Abure, to resign immediately.

Reacting, Ifoh said LP’s planned convention would go ahead as the constitution of the party already stipulated.

In a statement signed by Ifoh, LP said: “The attention of the leadership of the Labour Party has been drawn to a press release titled ‘A misadventure in political mischief, mismanagement and misdemeanor gone too far’ written by the NLC’s Political Commission as an agent of the Nigeria Labour Congress. The NLC letter did not come to us as a surprise or a shock, it was long expected before now, having known that the NLC was going to engage itself on this misadventure.

“Unfortunately, the rascality of the current president of the NLC, Joe Ajero, has destroyed the successes already recorded. It must be noted that the NLC and its political commission have become a bundle of contradiction and paradox.

“At this point, the leadership of the party wants to ask the NLC, what exactly do they want? If Joe Ajero is interested in the leadership of the party, he is therefore advised to resign as the President of the NLC and join in the contest for the National Chairmanship of the party that is scheduled for the convention on March 27, 2024.

“We must note that undue interference by the Nigeria Labour Congress on the affairs of the party has become worrisome, and it has become necessary to emphasise here the distinction that the Labour Party has a life of its own different from that of the Nigeria Labour Congress. In fact, the 1999 Constitution states clearly that once a political party is registered, it has a life of its own whereby it can run its own affairs without any interference.”
