You Can Not Defect To Other Parties – Labour Party Tells Newly Elected Lawmakers
The Labour Party (LP) has forewarned that its members newly elected into positions that they cannot dump the party for other parties.
The National Chairman of the party, Julius Abure, disclosed this on Tuesday while speaking in Abuja shortly after the meeting with members of the National Assembly-elect.
Naija News reported earlier that the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, held a meeting with the newly-elected Senators and House of Representatives members on the platform of the party on Tuesday.
The meeting was attended by Abure and other party leaders. While speaking on Tuesday, Abure reiterated that no newly elected National Assembly member on the platform of the party is allowed to join other parties.
According to him, the party would make a difference in deepening the nation’s democracy.
“The federal lawmakers-elect are men of integrity, and none will jump ship in the 10th National Assembly,” Abure said.
The Labour Party chairman noted that the party won eight Senate seats and 34 seats in the lower chamber.
“We must record here that all those elected on the Labour Party platform are men and women of high reputation and integrity, and I’m sure they were aware of the basis of their election.
“Even if there are infiltrations, our members can resist such infiltrations,” Abure said.
