The Labour Party has announced that nomination fees for the off-cycle governorship elections in Bayelsa, Kogi and Imo states will now go for N15 million, not N25 million.

The party’s National Chairman, Julius Abure, made this known on Tuesday while addressing reporters after a meeting with its elected senators and House of Representatives’ members in Abuja.

The party’s national leader and presidential candidate, Peter Obi, was also consulted on the matter, he said.

“We have reviewed all the complaints about the high costs of nomination fees by the party in terms of nomination forms for the governorship election in Imo, Bayelsa and Kogi states.

“I am pleased to announce to you that the nomination fees has been reduced from N25 to N15 million.

“We have always been a listening party, we believe that this party is propelled and owned by the people.

“Therefore, for us ,the leaders of this party, we shall always ensure that we listen to the yearnings and aspirations of our people and provide leadership by example,” Abure said.

The chairman noted that the nomination fee paid by its aspirants in Imo, late Mr Humphrey Anumudu, would be refunded to his family to show leadership of compassion and empathy that the party stood for.

He said that the LP has eight senators and 34 House of Representatives’ members and congratulated them for the victory.
