He said the Congress has persistently harassed and intimidated the party’s leadership by interfering in its operations and trying to impose its own leadership.

“In a separate letters to the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Minister of Labour and Employment, as well as the Registrar of the Trade Unions, the Labour Party through its Chairman, Barrister. Julius Abure and National Secretary, Alhaji Umar Farouk Ibrahim maintain that Comrade Ajaero has over reached himself by using workers funds to picket and sponsor insurrection in the Labour Party headquarters, an action which amounts to an abuse of office and should therefore be called to order and properly sanctioned.” Ifoh disclosed.
