Labour Party Issues Warning to Nigeria Labour Congress Over Leadership Dispute

The Labour Party (LP) has issued a stern warning to the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) regarding the ongoing leadership dispute.


This warning follows a resolution made by the NLC Political Commission during a stakeholders’ meeting held in Abuja on Monday.

The LP, through its National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, denounced the stakeholders’ meeting as an illegal assembly comprising disgruntled former party members and individuals not officially affiliated with the LP. Ifoh criticized the NLC’s involvement, labeling it as a front for Comrade Joe Ajaero’s political aspirations for 2027.

The LP accused Ajaero of attempting to destabilize the party for his political gain, alleging collusion between the NLC leadership and the current All Progressives Congress (APC) government.


The LP emphasized that the NLC lacks the authority to convene such meetings or make decisions affecting the LP’s legitimate leadership.

Moreover, the LP highlighted its successful national convention in Nnewi, Anambra State, where party officials were duly elected.


The LP credited the leadership of Julius Abure for the party’s national prominence and electoral successes in the 2023 general elections.

Amidst economic hardships faced by Nigerians, the LP urged Ajaero to prioritize the interests of workers over political ambitions, suggesting his resignation as NLC President if he intends to pursue politics.

In response to the NLC’s resolution voiding the LP’s national convention outcomes, the LP reaffirmed its commitment to uphold the party’s constitution and seek legal recourse if necessary.

The LP called upon its supporters to remain calm, assuring them that justice will prevail in resolving the leadership dispute.
