Labour: Abure, Apapa settle fight


The fight between the incumbent National Chairman, Julius Abure and the Deputy National Chairman of the party (South), Lamidi Apapa that polarised the Labour Party has been settled.

Recall that at the height of the fight occasioned by leadership tussle the duo and their different lawyers and supporters were in and out of the court.

The latest is that more than a year into the rat race, Abure and Apapa have closed ranks by settling their differences if to go by Punchng.

The latter said their settlement followed the struggle to extricate the leadership of the party from Abure’s grip by the Joe Ajaero-led Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC.

“It is the only logical way for him(Abure) to have a united front against the threat of the NLC in particular. I believe you already know Abure has a long history with Lamidi Apapa and Abayomi Arabambi before now,” the publication quoted a source familiar with the matter as saying.
