Kogi guber: Labour Party debunks report 21 LG chairmen decamped to APC


The Labour Party in Kogi State has refuted news making the round that 21 local government chairmen dumped the party for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The State Publicity Secretary of the Labour Party, Idakwo Emmanuel, disclosed this at a media briefing in Lokoja on Friday.

Describing the news as fake and misleading, he said the governorship candidate of the party, Barrister Adejoh Okeme, has no plans of collapsing his structure for any opposition party.

“How can the same set of 21 LGA chairmen decamp to APC three times, with the same people in the photos making the rounds?” He asked.

Continuing, Emmanuel said, “some time ago, before the presidential election, we saw such rumour making the rounds, last month the same rumour, and just yesterday we have the same set of individuals in photos making such rounds.


“In Kogi State today, the only news both the ruling party APC and other political parties have to put out is that either a group of Obidient movement is giving them support or members of Labour Party is decamping to their party.

“This is the only selling point of political parties in Kogi State, and this is because they know that Labour Party movement is organic and set to librate the good people of the state”.

He stressed that the Labour Party is focused on issues that will rescue the good people of the state,

According to him, the ruling party and other opposition parties in the state are using propaganda and fake news to deceive and distract followers, supporters and members of the party.

“Barrister Adejoh Okeme has his eyes fixed on the goal of restructuring the state and no level of propaganda will stop us from moving this state from consumption to a productive and prosperous state.

“Labour Party agenda is void of ethnicity and religious differences, and for a fact, a productive Kogi is possible and achievable with the mandate of OkemeHamza,” he stated.
