Chairperson insists, no crisis in Lagos LP. According to the Lagos State Working Committee of the Labour Party, chaired by Pastor Dayo Ekong, there is no crisis or faction in the chapter, and any other group or exco is unlawful and unconstitutional.

In a statement issued by the Lagos State LP Publicity Secretary, Mrs Olubunmi Odesanya, on Monday, Ekong denounced the splinter group led by one Mr Olumide Adesoyin as impostors hell-bent on disrupting the chapter’s peace.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, Adesoyin announced a new LP executive committee in the state on Friday, disavowing the Ekong-led exco that guided the party into the state’s 2023 general elections.

Adesoyin stated that the Ekong-led exco was no longer recognized by law as a result of the sacking of the party’s National Working Committee, which appointed the Ekong-led excos.

But Ekong, on Monday, insisted that Adesoyin and his cohorts remained impostors, who interpreted court orders to suit their selfish interests.

“The general public should disregard Adesoyin’s claim because neither the party’s constitution nor INEC recognize them,” Ekong added.

“The properly constituted Lagos LP exco is still in force, and all party activities are still being carried out from the party secretariat situated at No. 59, Oduduwa Way, GRA, Ikeja.


“Nigerians should be aware that the Labour Party has no factions at the national or state levels.”

“In the persons of Mr Julius Abure and Alhaji Umar Farouk, the party has only one legally constitutional and recognized national chairman and secretary.”

Ekong said Labour Party was focused on reclaiming its allegedly stolen mandate and would not be distracted.
