The leadership of Labour Party has banned its National Youth Leader, Anslem Eragbe for six months, over allegations bordering on forgery, opening of an illegal donation website and acts of insubordination.
The national youth leader’s suspension was contained in a letter issued in Abuja by LP National Secretary, Umar Ibrahim on Thursday.
The party subsequently named Prince Kennedy Ahanotu as Acting National Youth Leader of the party.
A second statement issued on Friday morning by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Abayomi Arabambi, accused Anslem of forging the chairman’s signature to execute some unofficial tasks and launching of a phoney donation site among others.
Arabambi stated that the need to clarify the suspended youth leader’s ‘alleged misconduct’ claim was necessitated by his denial and innumerable calls received by the secretariat to know his actual ‘sins.’
Anslem has however written President Muhammadu Buhari the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, trade union leaders and LP National Working Committee describing his sanction as illegal.
