A new Nigeria is possible. After many years of unfulfilled promises, pains and suffering inflicted on the masses by the Nigerian elite political parties, the Labour Party, a social democratic entity, currently making unprecedented waves allover the country, which represents the true voice of the masses and hope for a positive change, is now out and ready to bring about the real democratic change in the polity of the nation to fulfill the hope of the common man whom Labour party represents.
Men of great ideas are daily collapsing their structures into the fast rising Labour Party and pledging their allegiance all over Nigeria for the actualisation of a new and workable Nigeria through mass participation.
The South Eastern Nigeria whom have been on the vanguard of preaching for the true reflection of government of the people for the people and by the people, equity justice and fairness, are not left out of this new wave of change.
In the Southeast, old systems and structures are daily collapsing and embracing this new political hope, the Labour party. I want to reassure here that the Labour Party government being the last hope for the down trodden and helpless masses of Nigeria will bring sanity, change the old narratives and restore hope. Our manifesto and ideology stand differently, our operational system is clearly different from what is obtained from the other old political entities.
So, those coming should read and follow the Labour Party operational structure as enshrined by the Nigerian labour movement.
As we welcome the new and intending enterants into Labour Party, we ask them to follow and submit to the structures of Labour Party in every state from wards, local government, state and zonal level, identify and honour the chairmen at this positions and your interest will be highly protected.
Don’t neglect the managers at these level because that is where we know you as a party member. Everybody is important and will be a contributor to this much needed change. Nobody should come to Labour Party with the mindset of having a parallel party structure or operate differently or try to create confusion. This may be the system in the old political parties which is alien to the organized Nigerian labour movement, the NLC, the TUC and their affiliates which forms the bulk of the Nigerian labour party.
Do well to identify with the Labour Party political structures on ground and we all will work hard together to strengthen weak areas for the good of Nigerian masses whom we represent. Whatever you do in Labour Party, the masses come first before you.
My southeastern comrades kindly take note of this.
Cmrd Innocent Sunday Okeke is the
National Vice Chairman, Labour Party, Southeast.
