The Labour Party (LP) has denied forming an alliance with the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the governorship election in Ekiti.
The party, in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Abayomi Arabambi, described the rumoured LP- APC alliance as false and urged members of the public to disregard it.
He stated that the Labour Party could not accept political thieves into its ranks.
“The Labour Party’s attention 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 statement said.
“Okunade Odunayo is the only known Chairman in Ekiti, while Comrade Roland Olugbenga Daramola and Alhaji Ibrahim Onile remain our governorship and Deputy governorship candidates for the June 18th Ekiti governorship election,” the Labour Party stated.
“The Labour Party is amused by the APC’s public display of delusion, shame, and open deception in parading a dismissed former Ekiti State LP Chairman as the LP structure.”
“Since then, the Labour Party has been seen, noted, and widely recognised as a party with a capital zero tolerance for all forms of dishonesty and negative attitudes.”
“The Labour Party is a single party that is widely associated with transparency.” It is nearly impossible for LP to accept political thieves into its ranks.
“The Labour Party observes that the APC truly deserves to be included in its fold, as its usual best legs are as standard electoral poisons.”
“The Labour Party strongly offers the public good choices ahead of the 2023 election, the choice of voting right for the Labour Party, which is very committed to leading Nigeria to a New Nigeria of a new standard and morality, which all Nigerians desire and deserve.”
He added that the Labour Party would continue to pursue Nigerians’ best interests in all of its activities.
