Suspended Labour Party National Youth leader, Anslem Eragbe is poise to sabotage the presidential candidate of the labour party’s presidential and vice Presidential candidates of the party for the 2023 elections, H.E. Peter Obi and Dr. Yusuf Datti Baba Ahmed through his various activities in fighting the National Chairman, Barr. Julius Abure.
Peter Obi Northern Ambassadors worldwide, (PONA) National Co-ordinator, Amb. Sani Muhammad Sani revealed this in a press conference in Kano Wednesday.
The suspended National Youth leader has recently call for an emergency EXCO meeting while advocating for the removal of the national chairman of the labour party, Barr. Julius Abure under the pretext that the national chairman should step down for a Northerner to occupy the seat.
Worried by different attacks on the National Chairman, Barr. Julius Abure, PONA Co-ordinator said anybody, no matter his status fighting the National Chairman or the national executive members of the Labour Party is tantamount to derailing the party’s effort and it’s chances of winning the 2023 elections and should be label and seen as a saboteur.
Amb. Sani Muhammad Sani in a press briefing with newsmen Wednesday pointed out that the North is contented with the composition of the party with Northerners as the vice presidential candidate, National Secretary of the party, chairman of the campaign Council and many more Hausa/Fulani Muslim northerners as members of the Presidential Campaign Campaign.
“If we are not content we’ll vociferate our grievances, channel our complain to the national headquarters and fight for it without anybody coming from any section of the country to do it for us. If there is any position needed to be fill by a Northerner, Barr. Abure has done his best to that regard and steer the party into a pan Nigerian national party.”
Amb. Sani Muhammad faulted the Northerners for initially shunning the Labour party until the emergence of Abure and Obi as the National Chairman and Presidential candidate respectively that the North is now rallying to ensure the labour Party’s successes.
PONA further explained that it is glaring that the suspended national youth leader Anselm Eragbe is hell bent at denting the good name of Barr. Julius Abure which according to him become necessary for all supporters of ObiDatti to suppress.
The Northern supporters of ObiDatti should be left alone to forge forward on canvassing support for the best Presidential and vice presidential candidate, H.E. Peter Obi and Yusuf Datti Baba Ahmed.
“Peter Obi has the North in his heart, we are confident that the North will flourish in the area of boosting it’s economy and human capital development.” Sani said
