INEC to Publish LP Gubernatorial Candidates

TOPSOCIETYNG

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is set to publish the authentic Gubernatorial candidates for the Labour Party LP in Imo, Bayelsa, and Kogi States for the upcoming gubernatorial election on November 11, 2023.

This announcement comes in the wake of two crucial Supreme Court rulings.

The first, which took place on September 11, 2023, saw the dismissal of the appeal by Senator Athan Nneji Achonu. The second ruling, on September 28, 2023, resulted in the dismissal of the appeal by Sir Basil Maduka.

This crucial information was shared with the public by the Labour Party LP National Youth Leader, Comrade Eragbe Anslem, on behalf of the Labour Party LP National Working Committee (NWC).

According to the statement, both appeals were dismissed due to the illegal and unlawful Gubernatorial Primaries that were conducted on April 15, 2023, in Bayelsa, Imo, and Kogi states by Barr Julius Abure.

It noted that Barr Julius Abure was restrained by the FCT High Court Order on April 5, 2023, due to allegations of perjury, forgery, impersonation, criminal conspiracy, and financial malfeasance.

The Federal High Court in Owerri, the Court of Appeal in Abuja, and the Supreme Court have all upheld the Gubernatorial Primaries conducted on April 16, 2023, in Bayelsa, Imo, and Kogi states by Alhaji Lamidi Basiru Apapa, the Authentic Acting National Chairman of Labour Party LP. These courts declared the primaries conducted by Julius Abure as illegal, unlawful, null, and void.

As a result, the Labour Party LP now awaits INEC’s immediate publication of the names of the authentic three Gubernatorial Candidates for the Off-Season Gubernatorial Elections on November 11, 2023, in Imo, Bayelsa, and Kogi states.

The confirmed candidates are as follows: Chief Ukaegbu Ikechukwu Joseph as the Gubernatorial Candidate for Imo state, Hon. Mrs Blessing Azibanagbal Clement as the Gubernatorial Candidate for Bayelsa state, Col. Dr. Abu Vincent Enomona as the Gubernatorial Candidate for Kogi State.

Furthermore, INEC is expected to promptly remove the names from its website, which were previously loaded by Abure, including: Senator Athan Nneji Achonu for Imo state, Mr Udengs Eradiri for Bayelsa state, Barr Okeme Adejoh for Kogi state, Barr Julius Abure, the restrained national chairman, Umar Farouk Ibrahim, the restrained national Secretary, and other restrained executives, including: Ojukwu Clement and Mrs Oluchi Opara.

To ensure a smooth electoral process, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, is also expected to publish the names of the authentic Labour Party LP candidates and provide the INEC CODES to: Alhaji Lamidi Basiru Apapa, the Authentic Acting National Chairman of Labour Party LP, and Saleh Lawan, the Acting National Secretary, who will then proceed to upload the particulars of the Authentic Labour Party LP Gubernatorial Candidates for Imo, Bayelsa, and Kogi States, respectively.

This development is poised to bring clarity and transparency to the upcoming gubernatorial elections in these states.
