Three days to the governorship and State Houses of Assembly elections, the Labour Party National Working Committee, NWC, has dissolved the Labour Party State Executive Council of Rivers State with immediate effect, for gross anti-party activities and corruption in the management of Labour Party funds.

The Party in a statement by the National Chairman of LP Mr Julius Abure, says the resolution was reached after an emergency meeting today in Abuja.
According to the Statement the decision was in the interest of Labour Party and the Obidient movement in Rivers State.
Mr Abure explains that those who were at the helm of affairs in Rivers State when the 2023 presidential election was held should step aside until full investigation on what happened during Presidential election in Rivers State is completed.
The LP says the party has lost confidence in the ability of the compromised State Executive Council led by Mr Deinye Pepple to lead the campaign for the Governorship and State House of Assembly elections come March 11th.

The National Working Committee urges all Obidients in Rivers State to disregard every comment made by the dissolved State Chairman of the Labour Party, Deinye Pepple, on the election of March 11th and reiterates the full backing of the Labour Party on the candidacy of Comrade Beatrice Itubo of the Labour Party as the next Governor of Rivers State.
The National Working Committee enjoins all Obidients to come out en masse this Saturday to vote for Comrade Beatrice Itubo of Labour Party.
