Labour Party (LP) Expels Plateau Chieftain For Engaging In Anti-Party Activities

The Labour Party in Plateau State has expelled Abdullahi Adamu, one of its chieftains and a former aspirant for the Plateau North Senatorial district during the 2023 general elections, over alleged anti-party activities. The expulsion was conveyed in a letter jointly signed by the state chairman of the party, Grace Zamfara, and the State party Secretary, Bulus Kaze. The decision was made public in Jos and cited Adamu’s engagement in activities contrary to the party’s interests.
Adamu had initially agreed to step aside in favor of Gyang Zi, who eventually became the party’s candidate for the Plateau North Senatorial District. However, following a recent Appeal Court judgment ordering a re-run in Plateau North, Adamu now claims to be the legitimate candidate, asserting that his name is on the Independent National Electoral Commission’s portal.
The expulsion letter accused Adamu of collaborating with the opposition to sow discord within the party, leading to the decision to expel him. The party asserted that a thorough investigation revealed Adamu’s complicity in activities against the party’s interests, describing his actions as gross misconduct. The letter stated that, based on these findings, Adamu was expelled from the party with immediate effect.
