BREAKING: Abure loses as A’Court affirms Apapa as LP national chairman

The Court of Appeal sitting in Owerri, Imo State has affirmed Lamido Apapa as the authentic national chairman of the Labour Party (LP).

The Court in its judgement on Thursday also sacked the Julius Abure-led National Working Committee of the party.

The court thereafter ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to immediately recognise and publish the names of all the governorship candidates produced by the Apapa-led NWC in Imo, Bayelsa, and Kogi states.

The court also dismissed the gubernatorial candidature of Senator Athan Achonu of Imo state, and others belonging to the Abure-led LP faction.
