Ahead of the Ekiti governorship election the Labour Party, LP, has denied forming an alliance with the All Progressives Congress.
The party, in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Abayomi Arabambi, described the purported news of LP alliance with APC as fake and untrue, urging members of the public to ignore it.
He stated that it was impossible for the Labour Party to accommodate political thieves in its fold.
Part of the statement read: “The attention of the Labour Party has been drawn to an amusing dream, a pathetic wishful claim and a lying news report that suggests the collapse of Ekiti State LP structure into APC.”
The Labour Party noted that “Okunade Odunayo is the only known Chairman in Ekiti, while Comrade Roland Olugbenga Daramola and Alhaji Ibrahim Onile remain as our governorship and Deputy governorship candidates for the June 18th Ekiti governorship election.
“The Labour Party is amused by APC in publicly doing a dance of delusion, shame and open deceit parading a dismissed former Ekiti State LP Chairman as the LP structure.
“Labour Party has since been seen, noted and widely acknowledged as a party with a capital zero tolerance for all forms of dishonesty and negative attitudes.
“Labour Party is one single party much publicly identified with transparency. It’s practically impossible for LP to accommodate political thieves in its fold.
“The Labour Party notes that the APC truly deserves in its fold as its usual best legs are as standard electoral poisons.
“Labour Party strongly offers the public good choices ahead of the 2023 election, the choice of voting right for the Labour Party that is very committed to leading Nigeria towards a New Nigeria of a new standard and a new morality, all Nigerians desire and deserve.”
He added that the Labour Party would continue pursuing the best interests of Nigerians in all its activities.
