The Labour Party, Ogun State chapter has insisted that its candidate will be contesting in the governorship election come 2023.
The party said it’s governorship candidate, Kehinde Sogunle whose name was missing on the list released by the Independent National Electoral Commission on Tuesday would contest.
The state chairman of the party, Micheal Ashade stated this in an interview with PLATFORM TIMES.
Meanwhile, Ashade refused to comment on whether the omission was a mistake from the party or INEC.
PLATFORM TIMES however recalls that the electoral body has declared the Labour Party’s name missing in its list in July 26th, 2022.
At the time, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Abayomi Arabambi reportedly said it was an “administrative error.”
“We are going to Abuja tomorrow (Tuesday) to correct this” Arabambi added.
When the list finally came out again, the LP name could not be found on the list.
However, Ashade argued that since the election will not be held tomorrow, saying “that list is not final; our candidate is contesting and is contesting to win.”
He said, “Is it only our party that is missing?
“I don’t need to tell you what we are doing. All I know is our candidate is contesting.
“The list is not about candidate contesting tomorrow. Is there an election coming up tomorrow?
“I don’t want to make further statement on that. By the time the final list is out, our name will be there”, the LP chairman said.
