IT seems peace will remain a commodity too expensive to afford by the Labour Party (LP)  as the Court of Appeal affirmed Lamidi Apapa as the national chairman of the party.

The court’s decision on Thursday follows a legal battle between Apapa and Julius Abure, who had been declared the LP chairman by an Appeal Court earlier this month.

   The court also ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to publish the names of all the candidates presented by the Apapa-led faction of the LP in the Imo, Kogi and Bayelsa State governorship elections.

   It will be recalled that on April 5, 2023, a Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court restrained Julius Abure and three other members of the Labour Party (LP) from parading themselves as national officers of the party.

  Justice Muazu later granted an order of stay execution on the suspension of Abure and the other officers in another ruling delivered on May 19, 2023.
