LP debunks reports of defection of members to APC in South-West


Labour Party (LP) has debunked reports that its members in the South-West have defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The Director-General of the Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Council, Akin Osuntokun, refuted the claims in a statement on Monday.

He urged media houses to always check with the party to clarify any information, while emphasising that the reports making round on Monday were fake

According to Osuntokun, all the names purportedly listed as members that defected to the APC were not known to the party in the zone.

He expressed concerns that people choose to accept false news on face value, saying that the press should not encourage misinformation.

Osuntokun also expressed concerns about the fact that the report claimed that the leader of the defectors was the chairman of the LP in the South-West zone.

According to Osuntokun, that the title was unknown to the party.

He stressed that the party only had Zonal Coordinators of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), and there was nothing like Chairman LP South-West.

He added that the party’s Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) was being impersonated with fictitious press releases in its name.
