CITIZENS COMPASS —Fresh crisis is currently rock one of the opposition parties, Labour Party (LP), as the National Treasurer and Chairman of a faction of the Party are currently at loggerheads.
The Treasurer, Oluchi Oparah, has called out the Chairman, Julius Abure, to provide a detailed account of the party’s funds, which was about N3.5 billion.
The funds were said to have been generated through the sale of forms and various fundraisers for the 2023 general elections.
On Monday, during a press conference held in Abuja, Oparah expressed her frustration at being prevented by the National Chairman from fulfilling her constitutionally assigned role of managing the party’s accounts.
Furthermore, she alleged that the chairman has refused to allow any form of scrutiny into the party’s financial records since the closure of the sale of expression of interest and nomination forms for the 2023 general elections.
This lack of transparency has raised concerns and further intensified the crisis within the Labour Party.
