National Chairman, Labour Party (LP), Barrister Julius Abure

The national chairman of the Labour Party (LP), Barrister Julius Abure has congratulated the winner of Friday’s primaries of the party for the Edo governorship election, Barrister Olumide Akpata.

Abure in his congratulatory message also called on the former aspirants to eschew bitterness and work for the success of the party by collapsing their structures into that of the candidate.

In a statement he personally signed and made available to the media on Saturday, Abure also said that the march to Osadebey Avenue’s Government House can only be possible if the party’s leaders and stakeholders unite to defy the usual post election crisis.

He said, “I want to congratulate the Labour Party for having a free, fair and seamless primaries. You recall that I had always called and stood for free, fair and credible elections and that is what has played out in our primaries.

“I therefore want to congratulate the winner of the primary election, Barrister Olumide Akpata for recording the highest number of votes which made him the candidate of the party. I want to assure him of all our support to ensure that we win the governorship election in September, 2024. We will not rest on our oars until that is achieved.

“We believe that Edo state at this point in time needs the best of the bests to man the Osadebey Avenue House and today, Labour Party has selected one of its bests as the candidate of the party. If you juxtapose him with all other candidates that have emerged from the other political parties, it is clear that he stands out. We therefore congratulate him and we all will work towards the success of his candidacy in the governorship election.

“Primary election usually comes with a lot of tension, bickering, politicking and horse-trading, however, now that the primary is over and a candidate has emerged, I want to call on all Labour Party faithful, particularly, those who have lost at the primaries to team up with the candidate so that we can all work in unity and togetherness for the victory of the party.

“Whatever errors we have made or pains any party member may have suffered in the process of this party primaries, we want to call on all and sundry to put it behind them and let us all come together as a united family to work for the success of the party ahead of the election.

“We equally call on the candidate to be magnanimous in victory by reaching out to all aggrieved members of the party. He must realise that he needs the support of all party members to win the general election.
