The attention of the leadership of the party has also been drawn to a fake timetable in circulation released by some expelled fraudulent former members of our party seeking to defraud unsuspecting members of the public of their hard earned money through sales of fake forms.

Just like they did and failed in Imo, Bayelsa and Kogi states governorship elections where some people fell into their trap and were defrauded, we wish to state clearly that the timetable from these fraudsters did not emanate from the Labour Party and that the so called account number in circulation is not known to the party.

We warn that people should disregard the fraudulent group.

The forms for the Bye-election can be obtained at the office of the National Organising Secretary, National Headquarters, No. 2 IBM Haruna Street, Utako, Abuja, where the proper accounts belonging to the party and other vital information regarding the coming elections will be made available to the aspirants and members of the public.

Labour Party is also aware of selective attacks at some of our party leaders and aspirants in the Edo governorship polls by these fraudulent group aimed at discouraging them from the governorship race.

We assure our aspirants to disregards their nuisance value and focus on the project before them.

We also warn these falling villains to seek for alternate platform to vend their trade as Nigerians are already aware of their shameful gimmick which has since expired,” the statement added.
