Nigeria: Labour Party Chairman Dismisses Staff Following Supreme Court Defeat


Barrister Julius Abure, the National Chairman of the Labour Party, has given his approval for the termination of appointments of some of his aides. The National Secretary of the party, Malam Umar Farouk, has signed a termination letter stating that all appointments related to elections and campaigns have been officially dissolved.

The individuals affected by this decision are as follows: Mr. Mandela Ukegbu, who served as the Chairman of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Committee on Special Duties; Engineer Balami Isaac David, who was the Senior Special Assistant on Presidential Campaign, Fund Raising, and Grassroot Mobilization; Didacus Joe-Adigwe, who held the position of Senior Special Adviser on Strategy, Protocol, and International Relations; Princess Ajibola, the Senior Special Assistant on Special Duties and Mobilization; and Isaac Imasuagbon, who worked as the Senior Special Assistant on ICT.

In his letter, Farouk wished them success in their future endeavors.

Unfortunately, the opposition party faced a double loss as the courts upheld the victory of Tinubu.
