LP youth leader suspended over alleged forgery, others

The Labour Party (LP) has suspended its National Youth Leader, Anslem Eragbe, for six months over allegations bordering on forgery, the 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 the National Secretary, Umar Ibrahim on Friday.

It read: “You may wish to recall that on the 14th of October, 2022. The National Working Committee of the party met and has among other matters deliberated on the allegations of misconduct labeled against you as the National Youth Leader of the Labour Party. A disciplinary committee was constituted to look into your matter and report to the National Chairman.

“In compliance with the party’s constitution, as Amended, (2019) and the committee’s recommendations, you are hereby suspended from your duties as the National Youth Leader of the Labour Party for 6 (six) months, with effect from 18th October 2022. The relevant organs of the party will within the period, meet to ratify the full recommendations of the disciplinary committee.

“You are advised to surrender all party’s documents and materials in your possession to the undersigned.”

Hours after his suspension, Anslem was replaced by Prince Kennedy Ahanotu, who is expected to act as Acting National Youth Leader of the party.

Also, a 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 a phony donation site, among others.
