Edo Guber: Labour Party Rejects INEC Final List, Insists Alhaji Asamah Yusuf Kadiri is the authentic Deputy Governorship Candidate.

The Edo State chapter of Labour Party (LP) has faulted the final list as published by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in which the deputy governorship candidate is listed as Oluyinka Faith Alufohai rather than its validly nominated running mate, Alhaji Asamah Yusuf Kadiri (SAN).

It has widely been reported that Labour Party governorship candidate in the September 21st gubernatorial election, Olumide Akpata has dropped Oluyinka Faith Alufohai and picked Alhaji Asamah Yusuf Kadiri as the deputy governorship candidate of the party.

In a press statement signed by Comrade Kelly Ogbaloi, State chairman of the party and made available to newsmen in Benin City, assured party members and supporters that the mistake was simply a technical error.

According to Comrade Ogbaloi, the LP team followed all necessary procedures and submitted Alhaji Kadiri’s name and credentials as the deputy governorship candidate, well within INEC’s stipulated window.

It added that unfortunately, a technical glitch occurred at the end of the National Headquarters of the LP during the submission process, resulting in the incorrect name appearing on the final list.

“We are currently actively engaged with INEC officials to rectify this issue immediately and our team has provided all requisite documentation demonstrating Alhaji Kadiri’s valid nomination.

“We have been following-up with INEC diligently, to ensure it updates its candidate list with the accurate information.

“We recognize the anxiety this error may cause, but urge our supporters to remain calm and steadfast in their commitment to our party’s vision. Your unwavering support and activism have been invaluable thus far, and we need you to continue spreading awareness of our platform and championing the positive change we represent.

“The Labour Party is determined to contest the forthcoming September 21, 2024, Edo State Governorship elections fairly and transparently. We should not allow this minor administrative hurdle to dampen our confidence or impede our momentum. Together, we shall overcome any obstacle, minor or major, as we continue our march towards restoring Edo State to its pride of place nationally.”
