Also recommended for expulsion by the State Exco for various anti party activities after being suspended by their Wards and LGAs Excos are Mr Feyisayo Michael and Mr Tosin Ogunbona Meadows, former State Secretary and State Organising Secretary respectively. Their suspension and recommendation for expulsion which was communicated formally to the National Chairman of the Party last week was premised on various anti party activities engaged in by Messers Abayomi Arabambi, Michael Ashade and their cohorts to destabilise, factionalise and bring the Party into disrepute, acting as sponsored Agents of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC
The suspension and recommendation for expulsion of Mr Arabambi, Ashade and their cohorts was made known today in a statement released in Abeokuta by Tokunbo Peters, the Publicity Secretary of the party in Ogun state. The statement further disclosed that before their eventual suspension, several warnings and cautions were given to make them refrain from their anti party activities, especially through a peace and reconciliatory meeting which was mediated by a Frontline Elder Statesman. But rather than turn a new leaf, Arabambi and his cohorts became more recalcitrant and belligerent to satisfy their paymasters in the ruling APC.
The statement added that the Labour Party is not unmindful of the romance between the suspended members and the ruling APC Government and the various attempts made by Arabambi and his cohorts to destroy the Labour Party from within. Amongst these are his role in ensuring that candidates of the Labour Party were not listed for any of the elective offices in Ogun state in the just concluded elections and his sinister plot to remove some National Officers of the party from office through APC sponsored judicial ploy.
The statement adds that the era when the Labour Party was used as a transactional platform for pecuniary gains by Mr Arabambi and his cohorts was over as the party under the able leadership of both Peter Obi and Julius Abure, Presidential Candidate and National Chairman respectively, is now firmly in the grips of committed professionals and conscious Youths, who have now repositioned the Party as a formidable force in Nigeria and therefore can now favourably compete for all elective political offices in the country.
The statement finally admonished the Inter Party Advisory Council (IPAC) in Ogun state to desist from relating with Michael Ashade and his cohorts, as they no longer hold any executive positions in Labour Party.
Labour Party, Ogun state.
