The National Publicity Secretary of Labour Party Mr Arabambi Abayomi has said that this is too much corruption going on in the party which Nigerians do not know.
Abayomi disclosed this in an exclusively interview with THISDAY, on Thursday,where he alleged that there is a grand conspiracy target against him by the Doyin Okupe-led group in the party.
In the interview, he also vowed to expose Okupe and other members of the party involved in the alleged diversion of funds meant to prosecute the party’s presidential election.
Arabambi lamented that his life had been under threat since he challenged Okupe to refund the N50 million former president Goodluck Jonathan gave to Labour Party during the 2015 presidential election.
“This is my 13 years in Labour Party. People cannot just come into the party and in four months they will be telling us that they know more than us in the party.
“My life is under threat by Dr Doyin Okupe, my life is under threat by Ojukwu. I have the right to protect my life that is why I dissociated myself.
“The main cause of the matter is Doyin Okupe. We (LP) supported Goodluck Jonathan in 2015 and Jonathan gave Labour Party N50 million that was diverted by Doyin Okupe.
“These were the issues that I raised and concerning some documents and all of them now said, let us come against this guy because I told him that he has to refund that money. Okupe and others never knew providence would bring us together in Labour Party. They didn’t expect it,” he said.
Arabambi further vowed to seek redress in court on the matter.
“As I speak to you Okupe has purchased two brand new Range Rovers worth N65 million each. This was Okupe that was using an old Sienna before he came to Labour Party.
“Okupe has not given N1 to Labour Party ever since he joined the party. He should provide evidence.
“I am the National Publicity Secretary, the Constitution of the party is expressly cleared that I shall handle all promotion, advertisement, campaign banners and anything that has to do with publicity. It’s there in the constitution.
“But it was just a gang-up of which I am still going to challenge in the court. There is serious corruption going on in Labour Party that we are going to have a day for in court.”
