NLC rejects Mimiko as leader of Labour Party *Endorses Isa Aremu for Kwara gubernatorial race

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has rejected immediate governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko as the leader and presidential flag bearer of Labour Party.

President of Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wabba said in Abuja that Mr A.A Salam who parades himself as the Labour Party had seized to function in that capacity.

He explained that collection of Expression of Interest and Nomination Form fees from innocent and unsuspecting Political Aspirants, who desire to contest various elective positions under the Labour Party, by A. A. Salam, a former National Chairman of the Party is null and void.

He said Salam was removed at the Special National Convention of the Party held on 3rd October 2017, the legality of which was confirmed by the INEC report, presented by the three INEC Officials that were detailed to supervise the conduct.

Quoting Article 27, section 1, subsection i & ii, of the Labour Party’s Constitution, which stipulates as follows:

(i) “Aspirants for Presidential Election Shall be nominated as Candidate for the Party at the National Convention”

(ii) “Where the National Executive Council identifies a credible and nationally acceptable person, it shall nominate and present such a person for ratification only at the National Convention as the Party’s Presidential Candidate.

Similarly, the Party hereby disowns and rejects Olusegun Mimiko as its Presidential Candidate, since neither the National Executive Council nor the National Convention is notified, as provided in the Party’s Constitution referred to above.

But the NLC President said Congress endorsed the candidature of Isa Aremu, who is contesting the Kwara State gubernatorial election on the platform of Labour Party.

Isa Aremu is a member of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Nigeria Labour Congress.
