Labour Party faults NLC over certificate of registration

03 August 2015, 21:34

Abuja -The Labour Party (LP) on Sunday described the Certificate of Registration of the party handed over to the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) by the former national chairman of the party, Dan Nwanyanwu, last Thursday, as a stolen property.

This was disclosed by the lawyer of Labour Party, Chukwuma Ekomaru (SAN), in a letter to NLC president, Comrade Ayuba Wabba, which was made available to newsmen.

The letter added that the receipt of the certificate is faulty as it has been reported missing by Nwanyanwu who handed it over even when he had resigned from the party before the 2015 general elections to join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

According to the letter dated July 31, Labour Party told Wabba that on November 19, 2014, they sued persons parading themselves as the National Caretaker Committee (NWC) of the party, including Nwanyanwu as the fourth claimant in the suit pending before a Federal High Court, Abuja.

The party noted that hearing on the case was adjourned till September 30, 2015.

“We are to inform you that before now the Labour Party had reported to the Police that their certificate of registration is missing because Barr Dan Nwanyanwu after leaving the party told the national chairman of the party that the certificate of registration was missing.

“What Barrister Dan Nwanyanwu handed over to you on Thursday as the certificate of registration of labour party is a stolen property because Barrister Dan Nwanyanwu is no longer a member of Labour Party,” the lawyer said in the letter.
