The Labour Party (LP) has suspended 11 executive members for their alleged involvement in anti-party activities during the governorship and House of Assembly elections in Nasarawa state. The decision was taken jointly with the national body of the party to prevent a recurrence of such activities.
According to a statement signed by Mr Alex Emmanuel, Party Chairman, and Mr Ashime Benjamin, Assistant State Secretary, the suspended members violated Article 19, Part ‘B’ of the party’s Constitution, which stipulates disciplinary measures for anti-party activities that lead to embarrassment, contempt, and ridicule of the party.
The statement further revealed that the suspended executive members, who were state and local government party officials, endorsed a particular political party during the election without seeking the consent of the LP, thereby bringing the party into disrepute.
In a bid to investigate the activities of the suspended members, the LP has set up a five-man committee to conduct a thorough inquiry. The committee has been given two weeks to complete its assignment.
The LP has also emphasized that the decision to suspend the members was not taken lightly, as it was in the best interest of the party. Among those suspended were the State Secretary of the party, Mr Dahiru Abubakar, the Women Leader, Hajia Hajara Dalhatu, the Treasurer, Mr Musa Doma, and the Lafia Local Government Area party chairman, Mr Muhammad Aliyu. Others were party chairmen in seven local government areas of the state.
It is pertinent to recall that the LP governorship candidate, Mr Joseph Ewuga, had stepped down and pledged his support for the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) governorship candidate, Mr David Ombugadu, and this was duly communicated to the party.
