Callistus Okafor, a former deputy chairman of the Labour Party (LP), has approached the supreme court to declare him as the authentic chairman of the party.
Speaking with journalists on Friday, Okafor said the constitution of the LP still recognises him as the substantive deputy chairman of the party.
He also said that Apapa cannot emerge in illegality, as his “emergence would have been better if there was no consent judgment”. Okafor added that with the consent judgment, Julius Abure, therefore, is an illegal LP chairman.
“I am the only acting national chairman of the Labour Party. Every other person parading himself as such is fake. Lamidi Apapa and Abure are both fake,” Okafor said.
