Edo Guber: It Is Insensitive To Fix N30m As Nomination Form Fee – Kenneth Okonkwo Slams Labour Party


Nollywood actor cum politician, Kenneth Okonkwo, has berated the leadership of the Labour Party (LP) for charging N30m as the nomination form fee for aspirants interested in the party’s ticket for the forthcoming Edo State governorship election.

Okonkwo, in a short statement on Tuesday via his X account, said fixing such a high amount is insensitive and ill-advised of the party.

He argued that the Labour Party is meant to be a party for ordinary workers and Nigerians, but fixing such an amount for its nomination fee is simply excessive, objectionable, and unacceptable.

The Labour Party chieftain urged his party to retrace its steps so as not to be seen as towing the lines of failed and corrupt All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He wrote: “The decision by the Labour Party to fix its Edo State governorship nomination form fee at N30m is simply excessive, objectionable, and unacceptable. This is towing the line of the failed and corrupt APC and PDP. Nomination fee by a party, which is meant to be a party for ordinary workers, and which the ordinary workers can not afford is insensitive and ill-advised.

“The Labour Party should retrace its step now to avoid being classified in the same category with the old Nigeria political parties.”
