NLC Inaugurates Transition Committee To Conduct LP National Convention


The Political Commission of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) which includes stakeholders of the Labour Party (LP) has inaugurated a transition committee to manage the affairs of the party.

They appointed former NLC president, Comrade Abduwahab Omar, to lead the committee to conduct the party’s national convention.

Also, two co-chairmen were appointed: Professor Sam Ahmadi and Comrade Abiodun Olamosu, while Engr Nnwawulite Nwauwa will serve as the secretary to the committee.

Similarly, 13 sub-committees were constituted to oversee various aspects of the transition committee’s administration.

The committees comprising members drawn from diverse stakeholders across Nigeria, will work towards conducting an all-inclusive and expansive national convention within the next three months.

The move came after NLC voided the renewal of tenure for the incumbent national chairman, Julius Abure and his National Working Committee (NWC) “giving room for a leadership vacuum in the party.”

The chairman of the NLC Political Commission, Prof. Theophilus Ndubuaku, who briefed journalists at the end of the meeting, said the stakeholders had decided to put in place the transition committee in view of the vacuum of leadership that existed in the Labour Party.

He said, “In view of that, the stakeholders have unanimously resolved that a former president of NLC, Comrade Abduwahab Omar, should head the transition committee of the Labour Party.

“So, with what has been done today, we don’t have any vacancies or any gaps in the leadership of the Labour Party. We have filled this vacuum of leadership using this transition committee and within 90 days we expect that a convention will be conducted and the Labour Party will move forward.”

 After his appointment, Omar said a new era had come for the party.

The committee wasted no time, as it announced a meeting scheduled for today to chart the path to a successful convention.

Omar said the committee aims to build a formidable team that will position the Labour Party for victory in upcoming elections and expressed the confidence in the committee’s ability to deliver its mandate within the stipulated time.

He said Nigerians can expect transparency, openness, and a renewed sense of purpose as the party moves forward under the leadership of the transition committee

He said, “Today marks the beginning of a new era, we are committed to running congresses at all levels, from wards to local governments and states, culminating in a national convention, our leadership will derive from the grassroots, ensuring that the Labour Party remains unique and decent.”

We are transistors and we will not be deterred by any form of cajolery or blackmail.” He highlighted the stakeholders’ commitment to honesty and integrity, emphasizing that the transition committee would work collectively to lead the party forward”.
