The National Leadership of the Labour Party has dismissed reports that it formed alliances with other parties for the March 11 governorship and state assemblies’ elections.
The Party also ordered the dissolution of the party executives in Rivers, noting it has lost confidence in the ability of the compromised State Executive Council led by Deinye Pepple to lead the campaign.
This was disclosed by National Chairman of the Party, Julius Abure who urged party supporters to ensure that they retain their support for the party in the polls.
Abure said the Labour Party is leaving nothing to chance in ensuring that its candidates not only participate, but win at the ballot.
He also endorsed Beatrice Itubo as its standard bearer as against Fafaa Princewill who had also declared himself as the governorship candidate of the party.
But it is a different ball game in Rivers State where Labour Party has adopted the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Siminialaye Fubara.
This was according to the now suspended Rivers State Chairman of the Labour Party, Dienye Pepple in Port Harcourt.
The results of the Presidential and National Assembly elections on February 25 has established Labour Party as the third force in the polls after it clinched six Senate and 34 House of Representatives seats.
