Nwanyanwu Quits Office As Labour Party National Chairman


National chairman of Labour Party, Chief Dan

Nwanyanwu, Tuesday gave an indication that he

will be stepping down as chairman of the party.

Chief Nwanyanwu was reportedly to have

announced his decision to leave his seat as the

chairman of the party at the National Working

Committee (NWC) meeting of the party held at its

national secretariat in Abuja.

Nwanyanwu was said to delivered what appeared

to be his valedictory speech during the NWC

meeting, informing other national officials about

his intention to quit office and to allow his

successor to emerge during the party’s

convention scheduled for next month, according

to a reliable source.

Nwanyanwu has been holding the position since

2004 and has completed two terms.

It was also gathered that some party stakeholders

have tried to advise him against the decision and

continue to be the chairman of the party since its

constitution does not set a limit to the tenure of

the party chairmanship.

“Many of us would want him to continue in office.

There have been pressures from stakeholders for

him not quit but to stay further since the

constitution does not provide any limit or tenure

for the office of the chairman. No doubt his

tenure has helped to build the party to a great

heights,” the source said.

But the source informed that despite pressure on

him to stay back,he was said to have stood by his

decision to leave office which according to the

source may not be unconnected with the

defection of the Ondo State Governor, Dr.

Olusegun Mimiko who was his most trusted allies

in the party to the People’s Democratic Party
