As Labour Party Disassociates Self From IPAC’s Plot To Stop Parties From Participating In Saturday’s Election.

The leadership of the Labour Party has disassociated itself with the decision by the Inter Party Advisory Council, IPAC, Plateau State chapter, to pressure political parties not to participate in the Saturday rerun election.

A press statement signed by Obiora Ifoh, the National Publicity Secretary of the Labour Party, says the party “shall participate in the rerun election and we affirm that we are not under any obligation to accept any of such ridiculous decision by the IPAC to stop political parties from participating in election.

It has been established from the High Court up to the Supreme Court that the People’s Democratic Party, PDP was disqualified from participation in the rerun elections as a result of some irregularities on their part. The decision is in line with the laws of the land.

Therefore, we appreciate the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC by holding on to the law established by all the courts including the Supreme Court and by going ahead to conduct rerun in the affected constituencies.

To that extent, we are calling on all people of the Plateau North Senatorial District to come out en-masse and vote for Barrister Gyang Zi for the Senate as well as Hon. Daniel Asama who is the LP candidate for Jos North/Bassa Federal Constituency.”
