Despite the Nigeria Labour Congress’s opposition, delegates voted unanimously to re-elect Julius Abure as the Labour Party’s national head for a second term.

At the party’s national convention on Wednesday, March 27, in Nnewi, Anambra state, Ikechukwu Emetu, the chairman of the convention and the deputy governor of Abia state, pronounced him the winner.

Abure has been having a running battle with the NLC leadership led by Joe Ajaero.

Recall that NLC called for Abure’s resignation as party chairman and the immediate constitution of a caretaker transition committee.
