The crisis rocking the national leadership of the Labour Party (LP) has permeated Anambra State as a new chairman, Hon Peter Okoye, has emerged. Okoye said Hon Ugochukwu Emeh has been removed for being one of those who attended the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the party convened by embattled national chairman, Barr Julius Abure.
He replaced Emeh as acting state chairman in Anambra State, alongside other members of the executive. Okoye insisted that Abure remains a former national chairman and that Emeh has also ceased to be the state chairman of LP in Anambra State.
He briefed journalists in Awka after holding a meeting with members of his executive, insisted that Abure remains a former national chairman and that Emeh has also ceased to be the state chairman of LP in Anambra State.
Hon Emeh, the state chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has been accused of swindling unsuspecting members of the party. He was one of those who attended the illegal NEC meeting in Asaba called by Abure.
Okoye said that Apapa is not being sponsored by Tinubu and that the party is not against Peter Obi, but to fight the bad management style of Abure. He said that the N400million at stake is party funds, which Abure diverted to his own personal account. He also called on members of the party to distance themselves from Okoye.
