Abdulsalam is LP’s national chairman, says INEC


The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has again, dispelled rumours of any leadership crisis in the Labour Party (LP), saying Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdulsalam remains the authentic National Chairman of the party.

INEC’s position was contained vide a letter, INEC/LEG/PP/14/T/7 dated April 10, 2018 in a respond to complain by a legal firm, Afolabi Fashanu & Co apparently drawing the attention of the Commission to the activities of Mr. Mike Omotosho, who is parading himself as the National Chairman of the party.

According to INEC’s letter, entitled, “Re-Impersonation by Dr. Mike Omotosho as Labour Party National Chairman”, the electoral empire said, “Your letter dated January 8, 2018 on the above refers; “Please note that the Commission’s record and publication on its Website has the name of Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdulsalam (Baradan Paiko) as the National chairman of Labour Party.

The letter signed by Mrs. Augusta Ogakwu, the Secretary to the Commission, which copies were made available to newsmen in Abuja, has however helped to put an end to the misgivings in some quarters about the imaginary factionalization of the party’s leadership.

However, this is the second times the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, was dispelling the reports of any leadership change in the Labour Party, LP, within the last five months while giving recognition to Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdulsalam’s led National Working Committee, NWC.
