LP national chairman Abure suspended


The National Chairman of the Labour Party, Barrister Julius Abure, has been suspended from the party.

This decision came from Ward 3 in Arue-Uromi, located in the Esan North-East local government area of Edo State. Abure’s suspension is due to alleged high-handedness and anti-party activities.

A letter of suspension dated May 14, 2024, was issued, followed by a letter of ratification on May 15, 2024. These letters were ratified at a meeting of the state executive committee on Friday night in Benin, and Abure’s suspension is effective immediately.

The suspension letter, signed by Ward Chairman Thompson Ehiguese and Ward Secretary Stanley Usiomoh, advised Abure “to restrain from holding out or parading himself as a member of Labour Party, Ward 3, Arue, Uromi in Esan North-East LGA, Edo State.”

The ratification letter was forwarded to the State Executive Committee by the Local Government Chairman of the party in Esan North-East, Patrick Onogbeni, and LGA Secretary, Ehikioya Eromosele. The letter reads:
