Labour Party Kogi

Following a poor outing and reception that greeted the Presidential campaign rally of the Labour Party in Kogi State, the National Secretariat of the party has reportedly issued a query to the State Chairman, Abdul Ahmed.



The campaign train of the Labour Party got to Kogi State on Tuesday, with the Presidential and Vice-presidential candidates, Peter Obi and Baba Ahmed-Datti respectively in attendance.

Disappointed by the reception, ebirareporters.com learnt that the National Secretariat in the query, asked the state executives to explain how they spent funds earmarked for the rally.

It was gathered that most of the attendees, mobilized from neighbouring Enugu State to Lokoja for the rally, invaded the Ganaja Road secretariat of the party and held party officials captive for several hours asking for their mobilisation.

It was also noted that the Igbo community in Kogi State did not show up at the rally. While a few participants were from Kogi West, the majority of the party faithful at the rally were from Kogi East.

When the report got to the national secretariat of the party in Abuja, a decision was taken to send a letter to the Kogi State chapter of the party to demand explanations on how the fund earmarked for the rally was utilized.

The Labour Party campaign spokesman, Dr Tanko Yunusa responded that: “Nobody queried me or anybody for our performance. You are aware that we got our venue very late. I am sure that the state chairman mobilized all the zones accordingly because he was in charge; kindly find out from him. Despite the challenge, the rally held,” he said.
