The National Chairman of the Labour Party, (LP) Barrister Julius Abure, has denied claims that he will be contesting for the 2024 governorship election in Edo State.
He noted that the clarification became necessary following several inquiries from the media and other party members after a group at the national headquarters of the party on Monday urged Abure to join the governorship race.
INFORMATION NIGERIA learnt that a group had reportedly argued that the presence of Abure in the race would bring to an end of agitation by some non-party members allegedly bent on hijacking the party primaries ahead of the governorship election.
“We are therefore calling on all our party members in Edo state particularly, our aspirants for the governorship election to remain focused and to go ahead with their consultations. We assure our aspirants that the party will go into this election in line with our rules and guidelines as stipulated by our constitution,” Ifoh said.
