Godfatherism: Labour Party Advocates People Power

Godfathers can be rendered irrelevant in Nigerian politics if the people participate actively in every stage of the electoral process.

This is the submission made by the national leadership of the Labour party during the commissioning of the party's secretariat in Awka, the Anambra state capital.

Perhaps still basking in the euphoria of its recent victory in the governorship elections in Ondo state, the labour party is seeking to take advantage of its political capital by reorganizing the party nationwide ahead of future elections.

In Anambra, the party believes it can take advantage of the internal crisis rocking many political parties to offer a credible alternative.

National chairman of the party, Dan Nwanyanwu who was in Awka to commission the party's new secretariat is confident the party can sponsor a credible candidate for the 2014 governorship election.

However, it appears, Labour Party is also not immune from internal crisis rocking many leading political parties as some aggrieved members led by the state secretary attempted to disrupt the commissioning.

In quest for good governance in Nigeria the labour party despite the seemingly crisis rocking the Anambra state chapter, the party is optimistic that its aspirations for the 2014 governorship is on track.

A cross section of politicians believes despite challenges, Labour party is ready to reach out to the people by creating a platform for credible leadership.
