Labour Party Is Secret Society – Kenneth Okonkwo

Kenneth Okonkwo

Actor-turned-politician Kenneth Okonkwo has lashed out at the Labour Party (LP) leadership in a new interview.

Mr Okonkwo defected to LP on 24 August 2022, one month after resigning from the All Progressives Congress (APC) over the party’s Muslim-Muslim Ticket.

The 55-year-old, at the time, said he joined LP to promote good governance and a new Nigeria.

However, during an interview on Symfoni TV posted on YouTube on 14 June, Mr Okonkwo, who served as the party’s presidential campaign spokesperson in the 2023 election, said the party has derailed from the new Nigeria path.

The award-winning actor also made some damning allegations against the party’s acclaimed National Chairman, Julius Abure, and his executives.

His remarks come amidst a leadership crisis within the party, exacerbated by controversies surrounding the March National Convention in Anambra State, which INEC disowned.

He said: “I am not aware that (Labour Party) held a national convention like I told you; thank God, you’re a journalist. You’re an investigative journalist. They did not even allow journalists to enter when they were conducting the convention. Journalists who investigated to uncover the truth were not even allowed to do so when holding the election.
