“I’m Not Interested In The Gubernatorial Race – Abure

The National Chairman of the Labour Party, LP, Julius Abure, said he is not interested in the Edo State gubernatorial race.

He stated this in an interview on Arise Television on Thursday. Abure said, “I’m not interested in the gubernatorial race; I feel that the process must be open, transparent, and competitive.

“I have fought over the years that we have had leadership failures in the country because other political parties that produced leaders have lacked internal party democracy, and therefore the best cannot come out of the parties.

“Now that I have the opportunity in Edo, I will work with the National Working Committee (NWC) to ensure that the process is free, fair, and credible.

“I have the responsibility to ensure the party gets the best candidate for the people of Edo State. Once again, I have no interest in becoming the gubernatorial candidate in the state.”

The party chairman said that the problem within the party was brought about by individuals outside the party in an effort to guarantee that there would be no credible opposition in the nation, following the suspension of the party’s National Treasurer, Oluchi Okpara, due to unfounded accusations of financial impropriety against Abure.

He said, “If you follow activities closely, you will understand that the party came under heavy attacks after the 2023 general elections, to destroy the foundations so that there won’t be credible opposition in the country.

“It is obvious that a lot of people are being used to disrupt and cause chaos at the party.”

Less than a day after the party declared it would form a disciplinary panel to look into her demand that Abure be held accountable for N3.5 billion in money from the sale of forms and other sources during the general elections of 2023, she was suspended.
