Labour Party Blasts Judiciary over party’s crisis


Director-General of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council (LPPCC) and head of the Obi-Datti Organisation, Balogun Akin Osuntokun, has said that the instability in the Labour Party was created by the “crisis of the Judiciary.”

“It is a Judge that made the Judgement that is now responsible for creating a crisis in the Labour Party.

“Judges in Nigeria rely more on technicalities, evasive tactics, to take very crucial positions. It is the judge who has the judgement that is causing the crisis right now,” Balogun Osuntokun told Channels TV on Thursday Morning.

According to him “There was a judge here who in his discretion said that Abure who has been chairman from the primaries of the presidential candidate, for the governorship, candidates for the National Assembly and for the state of Assemblies, the judge thereafter, gave a judgement that, that Chairman, should no longer parade himself as chairman, what do you make of that?

“Look at who and who brought the case to him? The judge is a Nigerian, he should have made a more logical position at his discretion.

“Does it mean that if a clerk brings a matter to the court against the Labour Party, he would pass judgment based on that.
