Labour Party Suspends Embattled Chairman, Julius Abure

The Labour Party in Edo State has suspended a factional national chairman of the party, Julius Abure, from his Ward 3 in Arue-Uromi, in Esan North-East Local Government Area for anti-party activities.

The letter of suspension dated May 14, 2024, was signed by the Ward Chairman, Thompson Ehiguese, and Ward Secretary, Stanley Usiomoh, and another letter of ratification, both of which were ratified at a meeting of the state executive committee on Friday night in Benin, stated that the suspension was with immediate effect.

The letters, obtained by PUNCH, advised Abure to stop holding out or parading himself as a member of the party.

The letter of ratification of his suspension was forwarded to the State Executive Committee of the party through the State Chairman by the Local Government Chairman of the party in Esan North-East, Patrick Onogbeni, and LG Secretary, Ehikioya Eromosele.

The ratification letter read, “Here forwarded to you and for your consideration is the ratification of the suspension of Julius Abure from the membership of Ward 3, Arue, Uromi, Ean North East LGA, Edo State.

“The LGA Executive met on 15th of May, 2024, about noon, to consider the matters presented on the suspension and accordingly found them weighty and the suspension ratified and upheld.”

The State Executive Committee led by Kelly Ogbaloi endorsed the decisions of the ward and local government committee of the party on Friday.

The venue of the meeting was charged as leaders and members of the party chanted: “Abure must go!”

The State Executive Committee considered the letters, together with the issues contained therein, and ratified Abure’s suspension.
