Labour Party will sack Uzodimma, says chairman


The new chairman of the Imo State chapter of Labour Party, Festus Onyekwulisi, has taken over office with a promise that LP will unseat the current governor of the state, Senator Hope Uzodimma.

Onyekwulisi was briefing journalists on Friday at the party secretariat in Owerri, the state capital, where he stated that himself and other members of the State Working Committee would ensure that the party’s governorship primary election which comes up in April would be credible.

Onyekwulisi revealed that the party would protect their votes during the house of Assembly elections which come up on March 18.

Onyekwulisi while describing LP as a movement, stated that the best ways to winning the state governorship election in November was to apply transparency during the primary election of the party.

He said that the people of the state had suffered, adding that the LP administration would ensure that the people of the state began to enjoy the dividends of democracy again.

Onyekwulisi said ” we have began the process of recovering Imo State. The first step is to hold a transparent primary election. In all this transparency will be our watchword. Let me say it again that we are nobody’s stooge and the Labour Party in Imo State is not factionalized. 

“We are committed to a new Imo State. Labour Party administration will bring dividends of democracy to the Imo people. We are men and women of proven integrity. We have modelled ourselves to Peter Obi. We are here to do what is right. I am only a stooge to my conscience.”
