The Labour Party has dissolved the executive council of Rivers state chapter over alleged anti-party activities and corruption in the management of the party’s funds

Kenneth Okonkwo, spokesperson of the LP campaign, in a statement on Tuesday, said the Rivers excos have been dissolved with immediate effect by Julius Abure, LP national chairman.

The dissolution of the exco is coming hours after it endorsed Siminalayi Fubara, governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), for the March 11 election.

In a communique issued on Tuesday, the party said no candidate from Rivers south-east (Fubara’s district) has had the opportunity of becoming a governor which negates equity and fairness.

The communique was jointly signed by Dienye Pepple, Rivers LP chairman; Amado Solomon, publicity secretary; and Favour Reuben, member of the board of trustees.

The Rivers LP leaders said voting for Fubara ensures that LP and its members are “defenders and ambassadors of the values that have set her Obidient movement apart from all others parties”.
