The Presidents of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has been removed from the Labour Party’s (LP) list of members of its Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).
According to what has been learned, the names of TUC President Festus Osifo and NLC President Ayuba Wabba were omitted due to objections from various quarters.
The party made this announcement yesterday in Abuja, vowing to make available an additional list to include the names of people it left off of its Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).
Prior to the formation of its campaign council for the presidential campaigns of Peter Obi and Yusuf Baba-Ahmed, LP announced that the list will be made public.
Julius Abure, the party’s national chairman, made these remarks to the media after the party’s extended National Working Committee (NWC) meeting in Abuja.
A communiqué issued at the end of the NCW meeting read: “It is in the strength of the above that the Presidential Campaign Council has been duly announced with representation across all states, tribes, and faith. The Labour Party hereby announces the endorsement of the Campaign Council.
“However, we acknowledge some omissions and misplacement of some names in the campaign council, which will be corrected, and a supplementary list released before the inauguration of the council. Also corrected is the inclusion of NCfront, NLC and TUC members in the campaign list.
“The expanded NWC reaffirms that National Chairman Julius Abure is a diligent administrator and the effect of his expertise is felt by every member of the party and, therefore, urges him to continue with the good work of leading the party to victory come 2023.
“Labour Party is fully ready, and all parameters to prosecute the election in 2023 have been put in place and, as of the moment, we are consolidating the momentum that will help us to establish a new Nigeria, come May 29, 2023. We also further make it clear that the Labour Party enjoys a robust relationship with the new campaign council.
“The party reiterates its commitment to gender, youth, and social inclusion in all facets of its political aspects and operations…”
Additionally, it was discovered that the party’s campaign will start on October 18 in Nasarawa State.
