Julius Abure was on Wednesday, re-elected as the national chairman of the Labour Party for a second term by a unanimous affirmation of delegates at a national convention which was held in Nnewi, Anambra State.

Shortly after he emerged as the national chairman of the party for a second tenure, Abure declared the positions of deputy national chairmen of the party reserved for the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and Trade Union Congress, TUC, vacant.

The convention empowered the National Working Committee, NWC, to fill the existing vacancies in the NWC and NEC.

In a communique issued at the end of the convention, which was signed by Abure and Alhaji Umar Farouk Ibrahim, the National Secretary, the convention noted that based on the antecedents of its presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, before, during and after the 2023 general election, it recommended that the 2027 presidential ticket of the party be solely reserved for him.

According to the communique, the convention reviewed the ongoing development and performance of its governor in Abia State, Dr. Alex Otti, who passed a vote of confidence on him and recommended that 2027 Abia State gubernatorial ticket of the party also be reserved for him.
