Following the composition of the State Executive of the Labour Party, LP in Lagos State recently, there have been unending crisis within the party leadership that could mar the chances of the party in the State come 2023 despite the generous support the party is enjoying from different support groups and general public.
It is alleged that rather than build up the party across the State, the party chairman is rather busied in destroying and tearing down the party’s relationships with these support groups and other stakeholders.
Indeed, it appears the underlying reason for non challant towards the party is not far fetched as it was alleged recently on social media that Salako is considered as a mole sent by the presidential candidate of the ruling party, All Progressive Congress, Bola Tinubu, to destroy the gains of the Party in the State and also carrying out this sinister agenda perfectly since he assumed office as the Party Chairman in Lagos state.
They also cited lack of sound judgment behind the State party chairman’s wife, Folake Daramola being a campaign manager of the Presidential candidate of APC and the party in Lagos State.
This has led to fears on how safe the campaign strategies of the Labour Party will be in the hands of Comrade Kayode Salako who is literally in bed with the campaign manager of the Presidential candidate of APC, Bola Tinubu.Also, the state party chairman who brings retinue of outsiders including thugs to sit down and participate in the state exco meetings.
They also accused the duo of the party chairman and secretary of running fowl against the party guidelines by bringing and allowing people who are not state exco members to attend, sit and participate in the meeting of the approved 24 executive members by the national leadership contrary to the letter dated May 18, 2022, which stated the limited numbers of who could take part in exco meeting.
They cited the case of an alleged woman friend of the State Secretary, one Jennifer Ukachi, who is constantly allowed to attend and sit at the exco meeting.
All these, the different support groups argued run contrary to the 24-membership Exco appointed by the National leadership’s s letter as stated above.
The State Chairman and State Secretary have turned the State Exco meeting into rendezvous for their shenanigans, added another voice.
The party support groups therefore appealed to the leadership of the party and stakeholders to immediately look into these anomalies and allegations against the party leadership in Lagos State before the commencement of campaigns, rallies and the likes so that the Labour Party in Lagos is not put to disrepute and able to reap the good will of the OBI-dients moments.
