Those elected on Labour Party’s platform won’t defect — Abure

The National Chairman of the Labour Party, Julius Abure, on Tuesday, stated that no newly elected National Assembly members under the party would defect to other parties.

Speaking in Abuja after meeting with members of the National Assembly-elect, the chairman noted that the party would make a difference in deepening the nation’s democracy.

‘The federal lawmakers-elect are men of integrity, and none will jump ship in the 10th National Assembly,” he declared.

The Labour Party chairman said the party won eight Senate seats and 34 seats in the lower chamber.

“We must record here that all those elected on the Labour Party platform are men and women of high reputation and integrity, and I’m sure they were aware of the basis of their election.

“Even if there are infiltrations, our members can resist such infiltrations,” he said.
