We Won’t Allow LP Crisis Force Obi To Join Atiku In PDP, Says Arabambi

Recently, LP has been embroiled in a crisis over who controls the party with allegations and counter claims.

The National Publicity Secretary of the Labour Party, Abayomi Arabambi, on Friday, said the party won’t allow Peter Obi to join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) despite the crisis in the LP.

Arabambi, a guest on Channels Television’s The Morning Brief, said the party is seeking a political solution to its crisis so that its 2023 presidential candidate won’t work with his PDP counterpart Atiku Abubakar ahead of the 2027 poll.

“Politically, we will not allow the crisis to fester for long that we will now allow Mr Peter Obi to join Atiku,” he said.

“We knew their plans, that was why we said ‘we need to explore political solution between ourselves.”

The LP spokesman also weighed in on the recent legal tussle rocking the party wherein an FCT High Court restrained Julius Abure and two others from parading themselves as national officers of the party.

Justice Hamza Muazu of the FCT High Court, ruling on an ex parte application on April 5, 2023, had restrained Abure, Farouk Ibrahim, Clement Ojukwu, and Oluchi Opara from acting as national officers of the LP.

But in March 2024, the Court of Appeal in Abuja set aside the judgment of the lower court which restrained Julius Abure and two others from parading themselves as national officers of the Labour Party.

Justice Hamman Barka, leading a three-member panel of justices, held that Abure’s appeal had merit and was accordingly allowed. He held that the FCT high court was wrong to have assumed jurisdiction on the matter.

The court also awarded the sum of N1 million in favour of Abure and other appellants in the matter.

Reacting on the verdict during the show, he said every action taken by Abure between March 2023 and March 2024 is a nullity.
