THE Political quargmire in the Labour Party, LP took another dimension yesterday as former Deputy National Chairman of Labour Party, LP, Calistus Uju Okafor has described the Presidential ambition of former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi is still contentious.
In an interview with Journalists yesterday in Abuja, Calistus Uju Okafor, who is currently challenging the constitutionality of the Abure-led national working committee of the party in Court said, “I have read in the news media where Dr. Doyin Okupe was quoted to have said that I was demanding for N48m for the lawyers who have been representing me in Courts before I would withdraw my case against the Labour Party.
am however happy that he did not say that I have collected the said amount from anybody or group of people. I have also read the mischievous claim of a group that I had collected N15m draft to withdraw the case I instituted against the Labour Party. This is also not correct.
“I am fighting for my right, I’m fighting for Justice. Mr. Peter Obi left the Peoples Democratic Party because of the injustice carried out against him there. If Peter Obi could dump the PDP for LP in order to get justice, he should consider the case of someone who is looking for Justice.
