“Your job is to mobilise workers not select Party Candidates” – Labour Party

Chairman of the Labour Party (LP) in Cross River, Mr Ogar Osim on Friday told the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) in the state that its job was to mobilise workers to support the party in 2023 and not to select candidates for the party.Information Guide Nigeria

The chairman said this while reacting to a vote of no confidence passed on him by the NLC and affiliate unions in Calabar.

According to THE WILL, he stated that the NLC is not there to lead LP, but “they have their mandate which is to mobilise, even though anytime I meet with them, they claim they founded the party and must take over.

He said LP was owned by the people who attended its meetings and were active, adding that once a body is registered, it is run by a constitution and the constitution of the party is for NLC to send two representatives to LP meetings to represent it.

“In all the other states, the LP chairman goes round to tell the NLC what is expected of them but in Cross River, they want to dictate to the party what to do and even force candidates on the party.

“Candidates are processed by the party and not NLC; it is the party that will tell you what to do and organise its primaries in the presence of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) which we have done.
“It is unfortunate that in Cross River the NLC came together, collected money from some people and organised primaries without the presence of INEC and made them candidates of the party.”

He noted that according to INEC’s regulation, state houses of assembly primaries must be conducted at the headquarters, House of Representatives at the headquarters of the federal constituencies and Senate at the headquarters of the Senatorial Districts.

Osim revealed that the NLC gathered people in the NLC secretariat conducted primaries, stressing that “Some of the people they claim they elected are people who are still in other political parties and have not officially defected.

“An example is Mr Obono Obla, who is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Dr. Teteh Bassey, a member of different political party and others.

“These people have never approached the party to be candidates and are still bona fide members of their various political parties.”Jamb Result

THE WILL reports that Osim emphasized that LP wanted to contest and win the elections in Cross River State.

He added that LP would not give its governorship ticket and platform to someone that cannot win a councillorship election.
