A social political group known as “Equity For Justice” has called on Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to disqualify the Labour Party (LP) governorship candidate, Barrister Olumide Osaigbovo Akpata for openly disrespecting the existing law of the land by still parading an illegal running mate Yusuf Kadiri SAN against a female, Oluyinka Faith Alufohai that is lawfully accepted by the dictate of the Constitution backed by the national leadership of the party.

In a communique issued after an enlarged meeting and signed by the president Osamir Andrew and General Secetary, Osayuwa Kensington emphasised the need for the party national leadership to call the gubernatorial candidate to order before he dstroys the party and reduce the chances of the party winning in the forthcoming September 21governorship election.

They said it is now becoming worrisome that a renowned lawyer who claimed to have practiced for 30years and a former NBA president will not have regards for the rule of law as INEC on their portal on Tuesday morning still parades the female candidate Mrs. Oluyinka as the running mate and yet Akpata is fronting an Yusuf Kadiri SAN for that matter for same position, a situation that was viewed by the group as unhealthy for the party chances.

The leadership of  group however called on the national leadership of the party and the former LP presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi to call the gubernatorial candidate to order because his adamant action is confirming claims in some quarters that he could likely have been planted in the party to destroy it before the election and also criminal according to the electoral law.

The chairman and secretary of the group backed up their claims with the submission of what transpired in the primary when it was to be zoned to Edo Central despite that Olumide Akpata hijacked the process with the help of his sponsored masters thereby going against the policy of the party.

They concluded that same is now been repeated with him going against the choice of the party as running mate parading some other person even when the issue is still been contested in a court of competent jurisdiction in what the group viewed as inimical to the dictates of the party.
