Lagos: Ex-LP Chairman Salako, Six Others To Face Disciplinary Committee Over Anti-Party Activities
Former Chairman of the Lagos State chapter of the Labour Party (LP), Kayode Salako and six others are set to appear before the disciplinary committee of the party.
Naija News gathered that the party chieftains are expected to face the committee on Friday over allegations of anti-party activities.
Others are Moshood Salvador, Sunbo Onitiri, Olumide Adesoyin, Opeyemi Taiwo, Mutiu Kunle Okunola, and Theodore Ezeunara.
The Chairman of the Disciplinary Committee, P.J.A Igene and Secretary, Olubunmi Adesanya in a letter of invitation dated March 28, 2023, said the seven LP members are currently under investigation.
The letter reads in part, “You are hereby invited to appear before Lagos State Labour Party Disciplinary Committee to clarify the said allegations.”
Salako who led the party in the state for six months tendered his resignation letter at the party’s legal stakeholder meeting in January.
He contested for the House of Representatives for Oshodi-Isolo Federal Constituency 1 in the just concluded general elections.
Salako has continued to criticize the governorship candidate of the party, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour.
The former LP Chairman in a post on his official Facebook page on Sunday accused Rhodes-Vivour of ignoring elders in the build-up to the March 18 gubernatorial election in the state.
In the case of Onitiri, he is the senatorial candidate for the LP in Lagos Central.
He reportedly defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) a few days before the Governorship and State Houses of Assembly elections and endorsed the re-election bid of the state Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
