This was disclosed in an official statement by the chairman of Labour Party Comrade Julius Abure on Wednesday.
In the statement,Abure stated that the rumours of alliance with other political parties either to support their candidates or otherwise is being spread by political opportunist, adding that it has never crossed their mind to do such.
He further advised all Labour Party members to not only go out and vote, for labour party on March 18, but should also follow the process to a conclusive end as provided by the Law and also consolidate on the fit they achieve during the February 25 presidential election.
Labour Party not in alliance with any political party.
As preparation for this Saturday’s Governorship/State House of Assembly elections enter final preparations, the Labour Party is leaving nothing to chance in ensuring that our candidates not only participate, but win at the ballot.
This call becomes necessary given reports from some political opportunists from other political platforms, claiming that they have reached an agreement with Obidients and LP supporters to cast their ballots for them in this Saturday’s polls.
We want to state categorically and unequivocally that the national secretariat of LP has not given any instructions for any chapter of the party to liaise or support any candidate except LP candidates in this Saturday’s polls.
Our members should not only go out and vote, but follow the process to a conclusive end as provided by the Law.
We encourage millions of the electorate who believe in LP presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi and the philosophy of the party not to be deterred, but troop out en masse and vote for all LP candidates anywhere in the country. The LP is not in any alliance with any political party in the run-up to this Saturday’s polls.
Barr. Julius Abure
