LP threatens to declare Enugu lawmakers’ seats vacant

The Labour Party, LP, has threatened to declare vacant seats of the Enugu State lawmakers who want to defect to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The Enugu State LP Chairman, Casmir Agbo, issued the threat on Tuesday in a post on his Facebook page.

HMTV reports that the State government is under the control of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, which won the March 18 gubernatorial election.

HMTV gathered there are ongoing political maneuverings and plans by some members of the house to shift camp to the ruling PDP.

However, Agbo is now saying that the party was aware of the antics of some LP members of HOA who want to decamp to PDP.

” We are aware of the antics of some LP members of HOA who want to decamp to PDP. Their seats will be declared vacant,” he said.

HMTV reports that the PDP controls the leadership of the State legislature even though it produced fewer seats in the house.

Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had in its released list after the 2023 general election said the party secured 14 seats out of the 24 seats.

INEC’s Head of Voter Education and Publicity in Enugu State, Rex Achumie, issued the list detailing the names, constituencies, parties and number of votes scored by the members-elect at the March 18 election.

According to the commission, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has the remaining 10 seats.
