Coalition of Labour Party Support Group in Edo State, under the auspices of Edo Coalition Of Support Groups (Repositioned) has paid a solidarity visit to the state’s executive committee of the party under the leadership of Comrade Kelly Ogbaloi in Benin City, the Edo State Capital. 

In a press statement issued in Benin City and sighted by Parallel Facts, the coalition warned those causing division in the party to desist from such. Furthermore, they called on the expelled former national youth leader of the party mr Anslem Eragbe to stay clear of the party. The press statement reads.

Our attention has been drawn to a series of press reports of purported plans by mainstream political parties in Nigeria to cause confusion and division in the Labour Party by sponsoring malicious individuals to hijack the party. We hereby use this medium to warn these individuals to respect the party’s constitution and allow the law takes its cause.

Our unwavering support for the State and National Party Chairman remains unflinching in the wake of their exceptional performance in office. We hereby call on the expelled former National Youth Leader of the party, Mr Anslem Eragbe, who unfortunately hails from Edo, to desist from parading himself as National Youth Leader of the party, having been expelled by the NEC of the party.
