One of the aggrieved governorship aspirants in the just concluded All Progressives Congress (APC) primary election in Edo State, Hon. Dennis Idahosa has vowed to take legal action against the party.

Idahosa made this known while partaking in a demonstration at the party’s headquarters in Abuja, calling for “fairness” in the just concluded APC primary election in Edo state.

Idahosa, who was earlier announced as the winner of the primary election by the former chairman of the APC primary election Committee and Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, has also stated that he will take legal action against the party if fairness is not upheld.

He said, “I am not here to make trouble, I am a lawmaker but one thing that we want is justice. Today, I might be a young man but it might be the children of NWC members tomorrow. We have to do the right thing. If we continue to do what is wrong as a country, we are not going to move forward.

“So I am calling on Mr. President to call NWC to order. Elections were held on the 17th of February. What they did on the 22nd was just selection.”

By Elvis Omoregie, Benin

A Chieftain of the Labour Party in Edo State, Dr Kingsley Okundaye has described  the purported parallel primary of the Lamidi Apapa faction as unnecessary  saying the unity of the party at this point in time is more sacrosanct than attempting to destroy the party.

The Dr Okundaye who congratulated the former (NBA) National President, Olumide Akpata, as the party’s candidate said his coming will be changing the narrative of the party which the obedient movement had always wanted and will give the party an edge in winning the governorship  election slated for September 21, 2024.

In a chat with journalists in Benin City, Dr Okundaye said that competence and capacity stands out the party’s candidate to win the election.

He said that the party has in the last few years concerned itself with deepening democracy by emphasizing competency and capacity over rotation and other considerations

According to him, “Akpata has come to realise that the election is about people and the people must drive the process and the process will go a long way to re-establish  LP’s commitment to democracy.

“Akpata has come to change the old order; Akpata will be a game changer in the election; he has built enough trust among the people by identifying with the dreams and aspirations of the people.”

Dr Okundaye disclosed that the ‘Obedient’ Movement would continue to be a force in ensuring that LP wins elections in the state

He said that the Labour Party Patriotic Members Congress (LPPMC) has commenced the process of exploring all avenues to address the internal wranglings in the party.

LPPMC is a congregation of stakeholders of LP, including elected party men and women in government at the state and national levels, members of the Obedient Support Group from across the 36 of the federation and Abuja who are committed to strengthening LP’s stronghold and enlarging its support base.
