The Labour Party is gearing up to pursue legal avenues in response to the defection of six members of the Enugu State House of Assembly from LP to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Speaking with Daily Gazette, Barr. Casmire Agbo, the state chairman of the party said the decision comes after the six lawmakers officially announced their departure during a plenary session at the Assembly Legislative Complex, a move met with public scrutiny.


The defectors include; Ejike Eze (Igbo-Eze North 1), Johnson Ani (Enugu North), Princess Obiajulu Ugwu (Enugu South Rural), Pius Ezugwu (Nsukka West), Williams Amuka (Igbo-Etiti West), and Osita Eze (Oji River).

Daily Gazette recall that the defectors faced criticisms from party leaders, after attributing their decision to “irreconcilable division” within the Labour Party.

Barrister Agbo asserted that the defection was motivated by self-interest rather than genuine party differences, expressing disappointment in the betrayal of voters who supported their candidacy.

He emphasized the importance of building a robust opposition to challenge the ruling party’s policies affecting Enugu citizens adversely.

“The Labour Party intends to explore all legal avenues to address the defection, with the national leadership convening to deliberate on the matter.”

Barrister Agbo assured that further updates would be provided as the situation unfolds.

While reiterating the party’s consistent support for its members, Barrister Agbo emphasized the need for loyalty to the party’s principles and objectives, promising continued backing for those who uphold party values.
