The ongoing conflict between the Nigeria Labour Congress and the leadership of the Labour Party took a new turn on Wednesday morning as NLC members stormed the LP secretariat to protest the party’s national convention planned for end of this month.

The NLC has also demanded sack of the LP National Chairman of the party, Julius Abure, over alleged corrupt practices.

The NLC leadership accused Abure of planning to hold a “secret convention” without the inputs of major stakeholders.

The NLC has also ordered its state councils and political commission to picket Labour Party secretariats across the country.

This directive was contained in a letter dated Tuesday, March 19, and signed by the chairperson of the NLC Political Commission, Titus Amba, and the secretary, Chris Uyot.

According to the letter, the directive is coming after a meeting of the NLC National Political Commission and the leadership of the NLC State Councils and State Political Committees, which took place virtually on March 19, 2024.

That given the intransigence of the National Chairman of the Labour Party to unilaterally hold a National Convention of the Labour Party, financial rascality and contempt for the leadership of the NLC, the NLC State Councils and State Political Committees should mobilise workers to picket all the State Secretariats of the Labour Party, scheduled for Wednesday, 20th March 2024,” the letter partly read.

Recall that the National Working Committee of the Labour Party had accused Joe Ajaero, the President of the NLC, of making desperate attempts to replace Julius Abure, the Labour Party National Chairman.

The allegation was a response to an open letter written on Friday by the political wing of the NLC, the Nigeria Labour Congress Political Commission.

The letter raised allegations against Abure and the NWC, claiming that they had put forward plans for a national convention in Umuahia, the capital of Abia State, on March 27.

The convention was said to be aimed at re-electing Abure as the sole administrator of the Labour Party, with concerns of secrecy surrounding the event.

The political wing of the NLC deemed the planned convention illegal and is demanding the immediate resignation of Abure as the party chairman.

They are also calling for the formation of a caretaker transition committee to organise a legitimate and all-inclusive national convention for the party.

However, the LP leadership strongly opposed the directive, alleging that it was driven by Ajaero’s supposed desire to become the next national chairman of the party.
