LP USA Refutes Allegation Against Abure


The Labour Party in the United States have refuted the allegations levelled against its National Chairman, Julius Abure.

This was contained in a statement, where they expressed displeasure over the allegations by the suspended LP National Treasurer, Ms Oluchi Oparah.

The statement reads: “At a recent media appearance, the suspended LP National Treasurer, Ms. Oluchi Oparah, alleged that the LP National Chairman Mr Julius Abure, “while on a fundraising tour in the United States in August 2023, Mr. Abure and his cronies raised hundreds of thousands of dollars from the party’s diaspora community.

“To date, he has not declared a single dollar to me or the NWC, essentially stealing donations meant for the party’s development. Indeed, not a single cent from donations received was ever paid into any of the party’s accounts,”

“The Labour Party (LP) USA Chapter categorically refutes this allegation as baseless and uninformed. Mr Abure‘s visit to the United States was to acquaint and debrief with LP faithful and Obidients, and not for fundraising.

“It is important to clarify that funds raised by the diaspora, during Mr. Abure’s visit were strictly designated for logistical purposes, including local travels, conferences, receptions, accommodations, and related expenses, and was entirely managed by the planning committee. Mr Abure neither asked for nor received any funds from the LP USA Chapter.

“The Labour Party USA Chapter remains committed to upholding the highest standards of transparency, accountability, and ethical conduct. We call upon all stakeholders to refrain from spreading false information and instead focus on advancing our shared objectives of serving the interests of the Nigerian people.

“In conclusion, we affirm our unwavering support for our Presidential candidate Mr Peter Obi and his call for an independent audit of Labour Party’s finances and ascertain her true financial health. Until then, we urge the public to disregard the false narrative being peddled by individuals with vested interests and remain steadfast in our commitment to building a stronger, more prosperous Nigeria.”
