LP National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh in a statement on Sunday, said:

“It has come to the knowledge of the leadership of Labour Party of a letter of invitation trending in some sections of the media purportedly written by some desperate characters in NLC, inviting some Nigerians to an illegal stakeholders meeting scheduled to hold on Monday in Abuja, wherein they propose to appoint a caretaker committee for the Labour Party.

“This meeting being organised by some drama boys and attention seeking personalities in the NLC is illegal as we have not authorised it and it is not supported by any law in the land and therefore its outcome, a nullity.

“We are, therefore, calling on all genuine members of the party to disregard and shun the meeting.

“Few days ago, the Federal Government raise the electricity tariff to about 300 percent and the NLC has neither responded to it or has called out its members to protest the increment but it is quick to convene an unlawful meeting of disgruntled members who are not even party members.

“We are calling on the law enforcement agencies to rise up to the occasion and abort this gathering which may likely degenerate to public nuisance.

“NLC does not have any proprietary right over the Labour Party and therefore, cannot continue to lay claim to its ownership,”
