Edo State chapter of the Labour Party (LP) has reacted to publications trending in some online news platform, that one Comrade Ken Omusi the suspended former State Youth Leader is now the acting chairman of the party in the state.

In a press statement issued by Comrade Sam Uroupa, State Publicity Secretary (SPS) of the party and made available to newsmen alleged that, the self-acclaimed acting chairman, Comrade Ken Omusi brought thugs numbering over fifty including members of the Edo State Security Network to invade the party secretariat in the early hours of Thursday, 9th May, 2024 at Ogbelaka Street, Benin City, Edo State capital alleging that the state exco of the party has been dissolved.

According to Comrade Uroupa, the former state youth leader of the party was suspended alongside others for anti-party activities, gross insubordination and revealing classical official information about the party to non-members of the party, among others.

“To put the records in proper perspective, Comrade Ken Omusi was the former state youth leader of the party who was suspended alongside Alao Emmanuel, Engr. Jolly Isokpehi, Hon. Simeon Akharame, Mr. Iredia Sunday, Victor Omokpor and Arch. Lucky Imhanmwuokor for anti-party activities, gross insubordination and revealing classical official information about the party to non-members of the party, among others.

“We wish to state categorically that the State Executive Council (SEC) as led by distinguished Comrade Kelly Ogbaloi is still the substantive Exco of the party in the State, it has not been dissolved.

“The party equally contacted the National Chairman, Barr. Julius Abure of the development who also confirmed that he is not aware of any dissolution neither did he direct any one to act on his behalf.

“As a party we are convinced beyond all reasonable doubt that Comrade Ken Omusi is been sponsored by the PDP led government in the state to destabilize LP otherwise, how would one reconcile the involvement of men of the Edo State security network under the office of the deputy governor in over seven Siena buses in company of the suspended youth leader to come and violently take over the LP Secretariat?

“We are therefore calling on the general public, people of good conscience, all lovers of democracy across the world and Edolites in particular to appeal to the PDP led government in the State to let Labour  Party (LP) breath.

“As a party we are appealing to all voters in the state to come out emasse and vote for LP and its candidate Barr. Olumide Osaigbovo Akpata as we are determined and resolute in our quest to give Edo people quality development and the dividend democracy if voted in power come September 21st 2024.”
