The Labour Party (LP) chapter in Lagos State has been unable to find a replacement for its governorship candidate for 2023.
The party is in a state of uncertainty as the general elections in 2023 approach, according to Anaedoonline.ng’s understanding of the development.
Yesterday’s primary election was meant to be a new one for the party, but it was postponed after one of the candidates, Moshood Salvador, accused someone of tampering with the list of delegates.
Anaedeoonline.ng is aware of disputes inside the state party chapter as supporters encourage Mr. Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour to resign in favor of Salvador.
However, because the former insisted on taking part in the primary, their attempt failed yesterday.
According to reports, Salvador, who recently switched allegiances from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the opposition Liberation Party (LP), requested a postponement of the primary yesterday while speaking to reporters at the primary’s location until the problems with the delegates’ list were resolved.
The primary will proceed as planned, according to Sam Emeka Okpara, chairman of the Substitution Governorship Primary Election, who insisted that there was no oversight on the part of the committee.
Okpara urged the candidates to be patient and give the committee time to complete its work so that the two candidates would compete on an equal footing.
Alhaji Bashiru Lamidi Apapa, the party’s deputy national chairman, claimed that Mr. Ifagbemi Awamaridi, the party’s stand-in in the state, had formally informed the party of his withdrawal in a letter.
