The expulsion of the Director-General of Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), Doyin Okupe is null and void, the party’s national leadership has said.
LP National Secretary, Umar-Farouk Ibrahim, stated this while addressing reporters in Abuja on Friday.
Ibrahim said that the national leadership of the party was surprised at the expulsion by the Ogun chapter which was without due process.
“The Ogun State Chapter has acted outside its Constitutional jurisdiction, the party has international conflict resolution mechanism of handling cases against members as enshrined in the party’s constitution,” he said.
“There are also disciplinary measures to be taken, for example, before you discipline any member, there are certain procedures that you have to follow, you have to issue query among other procedures, and that has not been followed.
“No complaint was written by the state chapter, his ward and his local government, so we are saying the national headquarters is not aware of what they are doing, they are doing it on their own.
“The National Working Committee (NWC) is going to set up a committee and appropriate disciplinary action would be taken against the perpetrators in the state exco and we are going to fish them out and take appropriate action.”
