Former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, Olumide Akpata has joined the Labour Party.
Akpata made this known in a tweet on Tuesday.
According to him, he joined LP in March and attended his first ward meeting on Saturday.
”Quite a number of people have called/messaged me to confirm the news, currently making the rounds, that I have joined a political party.
”Yes. I joined the@labourparty_ng in March this year and on Sunday I attended my first Ward Meeting at Oredo Ward 6, in Benin-City, where I was formally introduced to members of the Ward and presented with my Party membership card.
”This was a major step for me and not one that I took lightly…but I simply got tired of complaining about Nigeria every day and bemoaning her fate and I decided to take the plunge and to try to be part of the solution rather than agonising continually over the problem.
”This, for me, is the start of a very important journey, and it is my prayer that I arrive safely at my destination. #Nigeria #Edo #LP #ForwardEver #ChangeIsIndeedPOssible #BeTheChangeYouWantToSee.”
