The Labour Party, LP has disowned a statement made by a House of Representatives members-elect, Hon. Amobi Ogah, hailing President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Speaking to reporters after a meeting with Tinubu, Ogah had said that the President is intelligent and ready to tackle the issues bedevilling the country.

"Today is my best day. Today, I’m so happy that I’m an elected member seeing my president talking. In fact, I’ve never known that this man is so intelligent.

“I never knew that this man is so prepared to serve this country. I saw the love, character, and charisma — the belief that Nigeria can be a better nation. So I’m so glad that the meeting we had today is going to take us a little bit to a more stabilised house. Now, even without talking to us again, we have agreed that we are going towards the government’s decision''. he said

However, the acting national publicity secretary of the Labour party, Obiora Ifoh, stated that Ogah’s position on President Tinubu’s leadership is his personal opinion and not that of the party.  Ifoh also said that the Reps-elect now regrets his action and has apologized to the party.

He said;

“Though as a first time and newly elected lawmaker, the member-elect made the utterance which is clearly within his rights as an individual as enshrined in the laws of the land however, the party has a view quite different from what the honourable member was quoted to have said.

“As an individual, he does not have the mandate to speak for the party and therefore cannot claim to be standing on the platform of the LP to do same, giving views that are diametrically opposed to what LP stands for.

“Labour Party is presently in the tribunal hoping to retrieve our mandate which was expressively given to our presidential candidate on the February 25, and every testament emanating from the tribunal points to the fact that Labour Party clearly won the election but was robbed. We have remained resolute to our belief that justice will be done and so soon.

“We as a party insist that the route to His Excellency must be excellent and anything other than that amounts to a mockery of democracy.

“We urge millions of our party members who are offended by Hon Ogah’s interview which has since gone viral to maintain their cool as the lawmaker has regretted his actions and has tendered unreserved apologies to the party.”

Can't the man say what is personal to him.
If you're stranded in the desert without water. Suddenly, your political opponent emerged with a bottle of water. Would you rather die or take the water from him???
Don't play blind politics nor be delusional. The man saw the personal qualities of Bola Ahmed Tinubu and eulogised it.
I read his comment and at no time did he say "On behalf of Labour Party"
