NLC Wades Into Labour Party Crisis, Directs Apapa Faction To Vacate Abuja Headquarters
Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has waded into the leadership crisis in the Labour Party, which had split the national working committee into two factions.
NLC leaders, led by its president, Joe Ajaero, on Monday, led the Labour Party’s national chairman, Julius Abure into the party’s national headquarters in Abuja, taken over by the faction which sacked Abure, and appointed lamidi apapa as the acting national chairman.
Ajaero speaking to newsmen, ordered Lamidi Apapa and members of his faction to vacate the national headquarters, or they would be arrested.
The NLC leader said his team visited the national headquarters to flush out leaders of the Apapa faction of the national working committee, who had obtained a court order restraining Abure faction from heading the party

He explained that NLC and trade union congress set up the Labour Party, and would determine who emerge as its national chairman or national secretary.
Ajaero said if the abure led national working committee was eventually sacked, the organized labour would meet to decide on the next line of action.
