An explanation of the contributions given by Nigerians living abroad to the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate Peter Obi during his campaign has been requested from Julius Abure, National Chairman of the LP.
Following her accusation of corruption against Abure last week, Oluchi Opara, the party’s suspended national treasurer, revealed this in an interview.

In an interview with Punch on Sunday, Opara asserted that Abure had taken money from the party using proxy accounts and had raised money under the party’s name while on the US campaign trail.

Additionally, the suspended treasurer claimed that for the previous eleven months, Abure was the only one taking money out of the partý’s account.

“Abure used the party’s name to raise funds during the United States campaign tour,” the speaker stated. They appeared on all the printed documents and tickets that I produced. In the party’s name, we have the $500 and $100 tickets. Abure, though, came back without missing a beat. We are discussing an individual who takes money from the party through proxy accounts.

Once more, Abure has been the only one to withdraw funds over the past ten to eleven months. I’m not sure if he uses forgeries or some other technique to accomplish it. Three of us signed the accounts, but the third, a previous chairman, is no longer with us.

Remember that in the run-up to the general election of 2023, Opara had accused Abure of misappropriating N3.5 billion that was purportedly collected through the sale of nomination forms and fundraising events?

In response to the accusation in a recent interview, Abure insisted that just N1.3 billion was made and urged Oparah to provide comprehensive evidence to support her assertions.

In response to the events, Opara was placed under six months of house arrest by the party’s national leadership, and Obi demanded an audit of the party’s finances.
