Court Refuses To Shove Abure’s Suspension As LP National Chairman

A Federal Capital Territory High Court led by Justice Hamza Muazu has refused to vacate an interim order restraining the National Chairman of the Labour Party, Mr Julius Abure, the National Secretary, Farouk Ibrahim and two others from parading themselves as leaders of the party.

Muazu has fixed April 20 to take all applications in respect of the case amidst a call by counsel of the embattled national officers of the party to have the matter heard vastly.

The counsel to Abure, Alex Ejesieme, had pleaded the court to vacate the interim order and restore what looks peace  after a takeover of the Labour Party national secretariat by another faction. He said the division in the party following the interim order has worsened to the point that four groups in the Imo State chapter of the Labour Party held parallel primaries.

Justice Muazu by way of intervention however ordered all parties in the suit to ensure speedy filing of their processes to hasten the hearing of the case.
