Edo State High Court presided over by Justice Emmanuel Aihamoje has dismissed the notice of suspension issued against the embattled national chairman of Labour Party, Julius Abure by some members of his Ward 3 executive in Esan North East local government area.

In his judgment, Justice Aihamoje said the party ward executive lacks the power under the party’s constitution and the Electoral Act 2022 as amended to remove the national chairman of the party.

The judge imposed an injunction against removing or suspending Abure as the National chairman until the national convention of the party is convened.

State chairman of the party, Kelly Ogbaloi stated that the court judgement has vindicated loyal party members while describing the Apapa led faction of the party as power seekers.
