ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – The Cross River chapter of the Labour Party has constituted a reconciliation and disciplinary committee to resolve the internal disputes within its ranks in the State.
This was disclosed in a statement by Ogar Osim, LP Chairman in Cross River, on Wednesday.
Before the 18 March governorship election in Cross River, some dissatisfied party faithful had endorsed Sandy Onor, the PDP governorship candidate even though Labour had its governorship candidate in the person of Mr. Ogar Osim, who doubles as the party chairman in the State.
Mr. Osim said the idea of constituting the committee is in line with the directive of Julius Abure, National Chairman of the party, that all issues affecting the party in Cross River should be resolved peacefully.
“It has become exigent to constitute a reconciliation and disciplinary committee to mediate and reconcile all parties concerned. The mandate of this committee is with immediate effect as the need to restore peace and unity in our party cannot further be delayed,” he said.
The 13-member committee has Alvin Ochang as its chairman and representatives of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC).
