My Suspension Unconstitutional - LP Youth Leader Cries Out

The suspended National Youth Leader of the Labour Party, Anslem Eragbe has cried out that the decision of the party to suspend him is unconstitutional.

Recall that he was suspended by the party’s national chairman, Julius Abure.

Eragbe said this when he appeared on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme on Thursday.

He said according to the LP’s constitution, the national chairman was not empowered to suspend him alone, as the decision, he claimed, did not pass through the National Executive Council of the party, adding that he remained the party’s youth leader.

He also added that the party stakeholders’ have called for calm and peace to reign.

Eragbe said, “Let me say this quickly, we operate under the laws, there are things we shouldn’t be seen doing. I do not accept my suspension because it is illegal. I am the national youth leader but not withstanding because of the appeals everywhere, this matter is being looked into within the party system and the stakeholders, they have appealed for calm.”

The LP, had in October, suspended the embattled youth leader for six months over alleged insubordination, fraud, among others.

Although Eragbe claimed that all charges levelled against him were “not correct,” the party went aheadd to replace him with Kennedy Ahanotu, as its acting youth leader.
