Labour Party calls for Minister Onyejeocha’s removal, alleges sabotage

The Labour Party has taken a bold stance, calling for the dismissal of Nkiruka Onyejeocha, Minister of State for Labour, over allegations of a lack of focus and commitment to her role within the government.

During a media parley in Abuja on Wednesday, Kennedy Ahanotu, the National Youth Leader of the Labour Party, conveyed the party’s concerns and demands. He said, “We are, therefore, calling on the present government to relieve Onyejeocha of her ministerial role as she has lost focus, and she has refused to concentrate on the assignment given to her.”

The Labour Party leadership went further to express concerns about what it labeled an “unholy alliance” between Onyejeocha and certain expelled party members, notably led by Chief Lamidi Apapa. The party alleges that this alliance’s purpose is to perpetuate a crisis within the party, further complicating internal matters.
