Idakwo Emmanuel said that there was no iota of truth in the rumour adding that it is an act of desperation on the part of APC.
The Labour Party in Kogi State has said reports that 21 local government chairmen of the party decamped to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC is false.
The party made the clarification on Friday.
Addressing newsmen at the Labour Party State Secretariat in Lokoja on Friday, the State Publicity Secretary of the Labour Party, Idakwo Emmanuel said that there was no iota of truth in the rumour adding that it is an act of desperation on the part of APC.
He pointed out that the level of democracy of the ruling party is despicable and regrettably lugubrious”.
According to him, ”the campaign flag-off of Labour Party in Kogi State, with Mr Peter Obi the presidential candidate and national leader of the party in attendance, as well as the National chairman Julius Abure and other NWC members in attendance has placed the ruling party in a pitiable dismal, and this fake news is nothing different from the last struggle of a dying horse”.
“Obviously the silent slides of the Labour Party in Kogi State are loud and terrifying to the ruling party as unknown and unidentifiable individuals are now sponsored by them to deceive the masses claiming to be Labour Party local government chairmen.
“I hereby state without equivocation that the structure of the Labour Party is intact and solidly working hard to rescue our dear state, and our move as a party is organic with genuine supporters and members.”
He said the media and audience following must reject all individuals who are not card-carrying members of the party or have an appointment letter to prove their appointment as a position holder in the Labour Party.
