The national chairman of the Labour Party, Barrister Julius Abure, has been suspended by his party in Ward 3, Arue-Uromi, located in Esan North-East local government area of Edo State.

The suspension was formalized with a letter dated May 14, 2024, followed by a ratification letter dated May 15, 2024.

The letter which was addressed to the embattled national chairman, explained that the decision was reached after a rigorous deliberation of his high handedness and anti-party activities and allegations of fraud levelled against him which are presently being investigated.

The suspension letter, signed by Ward Chairman Thompson Ehiguese and Ward Secretary Stanley Usiomoh, advised Abure to stop presenting himself as a member of the Labour Party.

The ratification of his suspension was communicated to the State Executive Committee by the local government chairman of the party in Esan North-East, Patrick Onogbeni, and LG Secretary, Ehikioya Eromosele.

The ratification letter reads, “Here forwarded to you and for your consideration is the ratification of the suspension of Julius Abure from the membership of Ward 3, Arue, Uromi, Esan North-East LGA, Edo State. The LGA Executive met on 15th of May, 2024, about noon, to consider the matters presented on the suspension and accordingly found them weighty and the suspension ratified and upheld.”

Also, the State Executive Committee, led by Kelly Ogbaloi, supported the decisions made by both the ward and local government committees.

During the meeting, party leaders and members expressed their sentiments by chanting, “Abure must go!”

After reviewing the letters and the issues outlined, the State Executive Committee confirmed Abure’s suspension.
