Peter Obi Doesn’t Respect Rule Of Law – Lamidi Apapa

Factional National Chairman of the Labour Party (LP) Lamidi Apapa has accused the Presidential candidate of the party, Peter Obi of lacking respect for rule of law.

He said Obi’s disregard for the rule of law was the main reason for the crisis currently rocking the party.

He said the leadership crisis would not have erupted if Obi had recognized him instead of Julius Abure based on an order of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory.

Apapa, however, asked Obi to wade into the dispute objectively with a view to amicably resolving crisis.

Apapa at a media briefing after his attack at the Presidential Election Petition Court in Abuja on Wednesday, demanded that Obi be unbiased to get the disputed chairmanship tussle resolved.

The media briefing was attended by the Deputy National Chairman of the party in the North, Mike Ayuba Auta, National Publicity Secretary, Olufemi Abayomi Arabambi and one of the women leaders Mrs Rukayat Salihu Umar.

Apapa said what happened at the Presidential tribunal in the presence of Peter Obi was disgraceful and a test to Obi’s leadership quality.

While tracing the genesis of the leadership crisis, Apapa said that immediately after the order of the court was served on the party, he was unanimously selected in an acting capacity as the National Chairman of the party.

Apapa claimed it was wrong for Obi to accord respect to Abure despite the order of the Court and as a presidential candidate seeking justice from the same court of law.
