The Labour Party, LP, has denied it will align with any political party ahead of this weekend’s governorship and State Assembly elections.
The National Chairman of LP, Julius Abure, noted this in a statement on Tuesday.
Abure said the party didn’t instruct any state chapter to liase with or support candidates of other parties.
He called on supporters to vote for LP candidates in the forthcoming polls.
“This call becomes necessary given reports from some political opportunists from other political platforms, claiming that they have reached an agreement with Obidients and LP supporters to cast their ballots for them in this Saturday’s polls.
“We want to state categorically and unequivocally that the national secretariat of LP has not given any instructions for any chapter of the party to liaise or support any candidate except LP candidates in this Saturday’s polls,” the statement read in part.
It added that “The LP is not in any alliance with any political party in the run-up to this Saturday’s polls.”
Abure’s statement comes after the Cross River chaper of the All Progressive Congress (APC) endorsed the candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Brian Odey, for the Yala 1 state assembly polls.
