The Labour Party has denied being part of the proposed Peoples Mega Party (PMP) and threaten to sue the Protem Chairman of the PMP Chief Perry Opara if he refuse to desist from linking LP to his party.
National Chairman of LP Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdulsalam said yesterday in Abuja that it is wrong and fraudulent for Opara to link the Labour Party with his movement when there are no reasons to do anything together.
Opara has listed members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and the LP among others as being part of the PMP.
Abdulsalam however said that there is no registered member of the Labour Party that would join the PMP or any party due to the ideology and vibrancy of LP.
“I want to assert that no registered Labour Party member has shown interest in joining him and will have anything to do with his (Opara) movement. We are warning him not to drag us into this. He should show remorse and stop linking us to his agenda otherwise we would take him to court and formally write to INEC about this.
“The manifesto of the Labour Party cannot be the same with Opara and the PMP that he wanted to register. We have identity, ideology and LP members don’t fleet about like ants looking for where to perch. So he should withdraw his statement. Labour Party and its members are not desperate politicians, we are not for sale. Our party members are loyal, focused, reliable and committed to the cause of the party,” Abdulsalam said.
