In what seems to be a direct result of the Supreme Court ruling upholding President Bola Tinubu’s election, Comrade Julius Abure, the National Chairman of the Labour Party, fired five of his most important political assistants.
The party’s National Secretary, Malam Umar Farouk, issued a statement in Abuja yesterday announcing the termination of appointments.
“Barrister Julius Abure, National Chairman of the Labour Party, has approved the termination of appointments of some of his aides with immediate effect,” the statement stated.
“He noted that all appointments that were related to campaigns have been formally dissolved. The effected appointees include:
Mr. Mandela Ukegbu, Chairman, Labour Party Presidential Campaign Committee on Special Duties
Engineer Balami Isaac David
Senior Special Assistant for Fundraising, Grassroots Mobilisation, and Presidential Campaign, Senior Special Advisor on Strategy, Protocol, and International Relations Didacus Joe-Adigwe Senior Special Assistants on Special Duties and Mobilisation Princess Ajibola and Senior Special Assistant on ICT Isaac Imasuagbon.
“The National Chairman wishes them well in their future engagements.”
