My Suspension Is Illegal, Suspended LP Youth Leader Insists

Suspended National Youth Leader of the Labour Party, Anslem Eragbe, says he remains the youth leader of the party, insisting that his suspension is illegal.

“Let me say this quickly, we operate under the laws, there are things we shouldn’t be seen doing. I do not accept my suspension because it is illegal. I am the National Youth Leader but not withstanding because of the appeals everywhere, this matter is being looked into within the party system and the stakeholders, they have appealed for calm,” Eragbe said on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme on Thursday.

Eragbe said his suspension did not follow the provisions for such action in the constitution of the party. According to him, the sanction did not pass through the National Executive Council of the party which he said is saddled with the burden.

The Labour Party mid-October slammed a six-month ban on Eragbe over alleged fraud, insubordination, amongst others. The party subsequently replaced him with Kennedy Ahanotu, who now acts as the National Youth Leader of the party.

Ahanotu, who was also a guest on the programme on Thursday alongside Eragbe, said he has not received any other from the party to step down.

Labour Party is popular among youths who support the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to defeat Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party in the February poll.
