Labour Party has accused the Minister of State, Labour, Nkiruka Onyejeocha, of trying to fuel crisis in the party.
National Youth Leader of Labour Party, Prince Kennedy Ahanotu stated this at a news conference in Abuja.
Prince Ahanotu also alleged that Onyejeocha has brokered an unholy alliance with some expelled members led by Chief Lamidi Apapa to ensure that crisis within the party was sustained perpetually.
Ahanotu wondered the connection between the Minister of State for Labour, Nkiruka Onyejeocha and the Labour Party that she will go to that length to instigate and fund crises within the party.
He explained that Labour Party was aware that the former lawmaker is fighting a personal war against the party.
“Onyejeocha has been in the national assembly since 2007 until the February 25 general election when she was defeated by Amobi Ogah of the Labour party with a very wide margin” Ahanotu added.
“Her loss to Amobi was a pill too hard to swallow hence she has vowed to use all her connections to ensure that the election declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC is upturned in her favour.
“Her political ambition was to be the Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives. She has also boasted that powers that be in Aso Rock have promised her the speakership, a position she contested in 2019 but lost to Femi Gbajabiamila, who now is the Chief of Staff in the Tinubu administration.
Prince Ahanotu added that Onyejeocha believes that the Isikwuato/Umunneochi Federal Constituency is her fiefdom, however the result of that election altered all the plans and permutations for Onyejeocha who saw her ambition drifting.
“We are worried that millions of Naira was allegedly budgeted by Onyejeocha to sustain the crisis in the Labour Party by funding Apapa and his cohorts, and particularly to ensure that Amobi Ogah is removed from the House of Representatives.
“These monies which ought to be channeled to help alleviate scorching poverty in her Constituency is been thrown around in her inordinate quest for power.
“The question that has not been answered is, why the obsession for power. It is practically impossible for Onyejeocha to be speaker again at least under this 10th Assembly as offices have since been distributed, What does she hope to gain in ensuring and sustaining crisis in Labour Party by massively funding Apapa and his gang” he stated.
“We also urge security agencies including Police, DSS, EFCC and ICPC to invite Onyejeocha for questioning over her role in funding insurrection in the Labour Party, bullying of INEC staff, manipulating the judiciary and also helping to spike political crisis in Nigeria”
