The Labour Party, LP, has reacted to the recent Court judgment, which disqualified three of its National Assembly candidates for the 2023 general election in Rivers State.

Recall that a Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt had yesterday nullified the nomination of three of its candidates.

The Court, in its ruling on a suit filed by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, affirmed that the nomination of the three LP candidates didn’t follow the provisions of the 2022 Electoral act.

The affected constituencies were listed as Port Harcourt City 1, Port Harcourt City 2 and Obio/Akpor Federal constituencies.

However, the Rivers State chapter of the party has vowed to appeal the judgment, describing it as unclear and biased.

This was disclosed by Hon. Dienye Pepple, the chairman of the party in Rivers State.

He said: “It is Crystal clear that the PDP wants to contest the elections alone as they have taken virtually all other political Parties to Court in a bid to disqualify all.

“For us in the Labour Party, the judgment does not represent the true reality of things as the affected Candidates have already been substituted. Hence the Party is already preparing to appeal the matter for the affected constituencies as we are still hopeful that justice would prevail.”
