Apapa, while inaugurating the committee, said the Labour Party remained a creation of the law and no one was above the law.

According to him, there is no going back in his led NWC’s readiness to steer the party’s affairs.

He said the Labour Party wouldn’t accept illegality, saying that the High Court and Court of Appeal have ruled against Julius Abure and had since stopped being the chairman of the party.

“We believe there is a court process. The Labour Party is a product of law. I have no problem with Abure. He is my friend. Trouble started when he believed that I didn’t belong. Labour Party is a creature of law and anyone who violates the law will not be tolerated. I want the world to know that they are liars. I was dishonoured by Peter Obi that he didn’t know me. I led the team that hosted him in Edo and Asaba. I was in the team that received him in Ekiti State.

“Despite the illegality carried out by Abure, our principal said that Abure is our man. So, there is no going back, Abure must go,” he said.

He added: “Labour Party believes that nobody is above the law.

“You are on the right side. If the other camp fails to join you, the train will soon move. Tell them to come and join us because we need more people.

Olumide, in his address, said he had the authority to steer the affairs of the party in Lagos State, noting that the Dayo Ekong-led group is only a support group.

He encouraged members to go ahead and prepare for the House of Representatives by-election in Surulere 1, stressing that any candidate that the party puts forward would win.
