Labour Party ignitia 

The Labour Party (LP) has slammed two of its newly-elected lawmakers – Amobi Ogah and Obi Aguocha – for expressing satisfaction with the leadership of President Bola Tinubu and the zoning formula of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 10th National Assembly leadership.

The members-elect had at different fora said they alongside some of their colleagues have “agreed to go towards government and party decision” on the zoning of the leadership of the National Assembly.

Recall that we had earlier reported that Ogah eulogized Tinubu against their presidential candidate, Peter Obi who is contesting the presidential election in court

Ogah, who was elected on the LP platform to represent Isuikwuato/Umunneochi Federal Constituency in Abia State, in an interview after a meeting of all elected lawmakers with Tinubu, expressed his admiration for the President.

“Today is my best day. I’m so happy that I’m an elected member and seeing my President talking. In fact, I’ve never known that this man is so intelligent,” he said. “I never knew that this man is so prepared to serve this country. I saw the love, character, and charisma — the belief that Nigeria can be a better nation.”

The interviews were not well received by his party, which has distanced itself from both lawmakers.

Reacting through a statement by the Acting National Publicity Secretary Obiora Ifoh on Friday, the party asked the affected lawmakers to retrace their steps and tender unreserved apologies to the leadership of the party.

“Though as newly elected lawmakers on the platform of the Labour Party, the Members-elect made the utterances which are clearly within their rights as individuals as enshrined in the laws of the land however, the party has a view quite different from what the honourable members were quoted to have said,” the statement read.

“As individuals, the lawmakers do not have the mandate to speak for the party and therefore cannot claim to be standing on the platform of the Labour Party to speak, giving views that are diametrically opposed to ideals for which Labour Party stands for.”
