Ladies and gentlemen of the press good morning! This media briefing this afternoon is to acquaint you with certain developments within the party in the last couple of days.
You are quite aware of the recent media reports regarding the issues that led to the relieving of our Youth leader, the popurted sacking of Dr Doyin Okupe DG campaign organisation and our Former Acting Publicity Secretary, Mr Abayomi Arabambi of his duties and the subsequent suspension of the Ogun state’s executives of the party.
You will also recall that the National Executive Committee, (NWC) had in a communique issued after its meeting to announce the aforementioned actions promised to set up a disciplinary committee to investigate the activities of the Ogun State’s EXCO and recommend to the NWC the appropriate further disciplinary actions to be taken against the Labour Party executives in Ogun.
However, the NWC has rather than set up a disciplinary Committee to look into only the case of Ogun State exco deemed wise to constitute Labour Party Security, Peace and Conflict Resolution, (LPSPCRC) Committee to handle that and every other matter that has do with grievances and mischief within the party.
This committee of eleven eminent members is to be headed by Chief Friday Toyin Ibadin as Chairman. Other members are.
General Enang Essien Rtd ….Member, AIG Charles Ugomuon Rtd….Member AIG Ezekiel Zang Rtd …………Member, ACG Akubiron Walter Chika .Member

Mr Obol Patrick Okomiso, …..Member,

With a single terms of reference to reconcile all aggrieved members with the aim of a common front to win the 2023 general elections and Peter Obi and Datti Baba-Ahmed becoming the President and vice President of Nigeria.
This is the update arising from the last decision of the NWC regarding the suspension of the Ogun State’s exco and the sacking of the former Acting Publicity Secretary of the party and we feel it is necessary to brieve you as partners in the quest of requesting Nigeria.
It is our sincere hope that all concern will respect this peaceful reconciliation call and join hands with the Labour Party, Peter Obi and Datti Baba-Ahmed in taking back Nigeria for the Nigerian people.
That the Labour party is one big family and the fastest growing political party in Africa and as such minor internal conflicts and mis understanding such as witnessed in recent past cannot be ruled out. The purpose of this committee therefore is to ensure the peaceful resolutions of all the grievances and further strengthen, promote the unity of our great party towards archiving the goals and tasks ahead us come 2023.
The committee is expected to start receiving interested aggrieved party members immediately to enable it conclude this assignment within the shortest period of time to face other issues.
It is therefore our humble appeal to all our members to cast aside all their grievances and key into the internal peace policy milestone of our party for purpose of peaceful resolutions of all the matters that may have arisen in the course of party activities. Labour party , Forward ever. God bless you a
