Labour Party Faction Accuses Peter Obi of Siphoning Funds for Campaign
The Lamidi Apapa faction of the Labour Party has accused presidential candidate Peter Obi of diverting $15 million and N12 billion meant for his campaign. They claim that Obi used the funds to aid the party's embattled chairman, Julius Abure, and support the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). The faction alleges that Obi's intention was to defraud the party of its campaign donations. However, the rival Abure faction dismisses these claims, stating that the accuser no longer holds any official position within the party.

The Lamidi Apapa faction of the Labour Party (LP) has made serious allegations against the party's presidential candidate, Peter Obi. They claim that Obi siphoned a total sum of $15 million and N12 billion, which were intended for his campaign.

The faction, through its spokesman Abayomi Arabambi, alleges that Obi used the funds to assist the party's embattled chairman, Julius Abure, as well as the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). According to Arabambi, the motive behind Obi's actions all along was to defraud the party of the campaign donations generously made towards the upcoming 2023 general election.

"Our previous position has now been confirmed that Peter Obi was just all out to defraud our party of donations made towards the 2023 general election which was in a scary sum of $15 million and N12 billion that Peter Obi deliberately used for the cure of Abure's poverty lineage and help other Julius Abure IPOB irresponsible ethnic irredeemable irredentist supporters to have a lifeline," the statement read in part.

Arabambi further alleges that "Peter Obi fraudulently converted all monies due to our agents across the country and they all refused to represent the party at all pooling units."

However, the Abure faction of the Labour Party, through its spokesman Obiora Ifoh, promptly responded to the accusations. In a statement given to Peoples Gazette, Ifoh dismissed the claims made by the Apapa faction, stating, "We can't be trading words with someone who has been expelled from the party and has no locus standi to claim that he's the chairman of the Labour Party."

It is now evident that a bitter power struggle divides the Labour Party, with conflicting narratives being presented by the rival factions. This situation casts a shadow over the party's unity and raises concerns regarding its ability to effectively participate in the upcoming presidential election.

As of now, Peter Obi has not issued any official response to the allegations put forth by the Apapa faction. The party's supporters and the electorate eagerly await Obi's statement to clarify the situation and address the accusations made against him.
