The Labour Party factional chairman, Lamidi Apapa, has given grounds on which he’d honour an invitation for dialogue from the President-elect, Bola Tinubu.
While responding to questions about if he will honour an invitation from Tinubu for reconciliation talks on Arise TV’s Morning Show on Thursday, Apapa said he would meet with the former Lagos State governor if it was approved by the party.
The PUNCH reports that the leadership crisis rocking the Labour Party worsened on Wednesday as the factions loyal to Apapa, and Julius Abure engaged in a fight at the Presidential Election Petition Court in Abuja.
The Federal High Court in Abuja had suspended Abure as the National Chairman of the LP.
But the frosty relationship between the two factions boiled over as Apapa was nearly mobbed by some aggrieved LP members on the court premises but for the quick intervention of policemen, who brought the situation under control.
