The factional National Chairman of the Labour Party, Lamidi Apapa has denied receiving N500 million from any quarters to scuttle the party’s effort at the Presidential Election Petition Court, (PEPC).

This is as he threatened to expose Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the party in the last elections.

Apapa had a torrid time at the election petition tribunal on Wednesday, May 17, 2023, where he had to deal with bitter exchanges inside the tribunal over sitting arrangements, and was booed by supporters of the party as he emerged from the tribunal, while his cap was yanked off his head.

Addressing the press after the chaotic court session, Apapa expressed displeasure that Obi appears to be taking sides with Julius Abure, the LP chairman removed by the court.

He denied receiving any money or being influenced by anybody or any group to work against the party.

He said Obi has been economical with the truth so far and that he will expose the former Anambra governor.

“On the allegation of bribe taking, it’s not true. If you have your evidence to prove, bring your evidence that I have collected money or we’ve collected money from anybody. It’s absolutely untrue,” Apapa said.

“On Peter Obi taking sides, I don’t want to expose him, but he deserves to be exposed. Sometime ago, in one of the interviews he (Obi) granted, he said he does not know me at all.

“I have been trying to cover him, but he does not deserve it. The reasons are this: This is a man, during his primary in Asaba, I did the opening prayer. And I was not a young officer. I was the deputy national chairman of the party. I have been 21 years in this party. I have held a lot of positions in this party to the level I am today.

“Obi’s first campaign started in Benin. I was in Benin with him. And we used his aircraft from Benin back to Abuja–chartered plane. Not only that, when he came to Ekiti (Afe Babalola University), I led the team that hosted him in that campus. We were there for over two hours. I led the team to the palace. And he doesn’t know me?”

Apapa also directed expletives at the “young chap” who removed his cap at the court.

In attendance at the briefing were the Deputy National Chairman of the Party in the North, Mr. Mike Auta, the National Publicity Secretary, Olufemi Arabambi, and the Acting Women Leader, Rukkayat Salihu.
