Stop Parading Yourself as C’River Chairman, Labour party Tells Baron, Appoints Elder Maurice State Chairman

If the documents made available to TDN are anything to go by, the TDN can authoritatively report that there is a big leadership crack in the Cross River state Chapter of Labour Party.

According to a letter dated 6th June issued from the National secretariat of labour party in Abuja, the National Chairman, Alhaji A.A. Salam (Baraden Piako) has directed the State acting Chairman Mr. Baron Eyo to stop Parading himself as the state chairman stating that though he was verbally appointed to act in that capacity. An act which the national chairman said it was null and void. And that it was also discovered that he is not financial member which he said contradicts article 10(2) and Article 10(3) of the party’s constitution.

In a related development, another letter was released by the National chairman appointing Elder Maurice Bassey Ekeng  as the substantial chairman of the party in the state.

Mr. Baron was warned to desist from parading himself as the state chairman or stands the risk of been sued for impersonation.  He was also directed to hand over all party documents and propereties in his possession to Elder Maurice Bassey Ekeng, the new state Chairman.

Elder Bassey who has since resumed as the state chairman was mandated by the letter confirming his appointment to commence the process of coordinating the affairs of and also revitalize the party, he was also saddled with the responsibility of mobilizing both old and new members and bringing in serious minded politicians, prominent people, Nigerian Workers of Like Minds and ideologies etc.
