The national leadership of the Labour Party (LP) has accused the National President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Joe Ajaero, of colluding with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to destabilize the party.

The LP claims to have evidence of this alleged pact, asserting that Ajaero’s motive is to advance his political aspirations for 2027.

In a statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary of LP, Obiora Ifoh, the party dismissed the caretaker committee established by the NLC to take control of the LP, arguing that the NLC lacks the constitutional authority to do so.

Part of the statement read: “The Political Commission of the NLC is a front for Comrade Joe Ajaero, which he has empowered for the purpose of his political ambition come 2027.

“The group is unknown to the Labour Party, as such lacks powers to convene a meeting of ‘stakeholders’ to deliberate let alone take any decision which will have a binding effect on a legally constituted party leadership.

“The group has been mandated by Ajaero to ensure that crisis in Labour Party festers ahead of the 2027 by presenting itself as a rallying ground for dissident former members of our party who recently lost the leadership battle in the courts.

“We are also not unmindful of the political pact the leadership of the NLC has gone into with the current All Progressives Congress-led federal government to destabilise the opposition.

“This explains why in quick succession all their plots to hijack the party leadership has failed. First, it was by illegal picketing of the party, when that failed, it attempted to introduce and inaugurate a non-existing Board of Trustees, that also failed.

“Again, the attempted plot to take over the party using a stakeholders meeting comprising former members, social media tigers and non-members, will again fail like a pack of card.”
