The Labour Party’s National Working Committee (NWC), loyal to the Lamidi Apapa group, has disputed allegations that it has asked the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal to withdraw the case submitted by the party’s Presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
The embattled Julius Abure faction had sounded the alarm on Tuesday that Apapa and his team had gone to the Abuja judiciary to withdraw Obi’s case challenging the win of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
Apapa condemned the book as “epistle of personal bitterness, ignorance, and completely unintelligent outburst.”
Apapa said Abure has been restrained by the Abuja High Court “over confirmed allegations of forgery of Court seal” and others, adding that it is not new that he could engage in “cheap blackmail to gain public sympathy in order to cover up his criminal tracks.”
He challenged Abure to produce a copy of the letter signed by Apapa or the Secretary in order to withdraw the petition from the tribunal.
Arabambi stated that he and his team would not be intimidated by “these wicked lies,” and that the publishing was “a well orchestrated plan by Abure to incite violence and chaos in order to make Nigeria ungovernable.”
According to the statement, the Labour Party leader stated that he and his team would not engage in a rhetorical war with people he referred to as “pedestrian political misfits and despots,” and that it was evident that “Abure is attempting to whip up sentiment on his travails.”
He added that the Labour Party, led by Apapa, is committed to Obi’s “mission to reclaim the mandate freely given to him and our party during the February 25th, 2023 Presidential and National Assembly election.”
