These are not the best of times for Peter Obi, Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 general elections as fresh crisis hits his Party. The crisis, according to the National Treasurer, Mrs. Oluchi Oparah, is due to the refusal of the National Chairman, Julius Abure to render an account of party funds over N3.5bn being proceeds of sale of forms and sundry fundraisers for the 2023 general elections.

Mrs Oparah made public the demand at a press conference in Abuja, on Monday.

According to the treasurer, the National Chairman has prevented her from exercising her constitutionally assigned role of handling the party’s accounts.

She equally alleged that the chairman has shunned all entireties to open the party’s books for scrutiny since the sale of expression of interest and nomination forms closed before the 2023 general elections.

Oparah said, “Good morning, ladies and gentlemen of the press. I stand before you today with a heavy heart and a sense of duty to the principles of transparency, accountability, and justice. With great reluctance and deep concern, I am compelled to publicly address the media regarding the egregious financial mismanagement and corruption that have plagued our beloved party under the leadership of Mr Julius Abure, the current National Chairman.
