The Labour Party’s gubernatorial candidate in Kwara state, Basambo Abubakar, has been suspended for allegedly engaging in anti-party activities and spreading false information to the general public.
In order to realize a shared vision for a thriving Kwara state, Abubakar, a former adviser to former Senate President Bukola Saraki, stated that the Labour Party and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara state had resolved to cooperate for the March 18 governorship elections.
Kehinde Rotimi, the party’s leader, told reporters in Ilorin that the party had no affiliation with any political party or candidate for governor in the state’s Saturday elections.
Rotimi asserted that the governorship candidate acted against what the party stands for as he had no such authority to announce the alignment of the Labour Party with any party in the state.
The party chairman enjoined members of the public to disregard the statement credited to its governorship candidate, adding that all House of Assembly candidates of the party are still in the race.
