Taraba LP Suspends Chair For Alleged Misappropriation Of N21m, Others / I Didn't Collect ₦20m From Peter Obi, My Life Under Threat ― Taraba LP Chair / LP Suspends National Youth Leader Over Alleged Misconduct (2) (3) (4)
|Taraba LP Suspends Chairman Over Alleged N21m Fraud, Others by Malcolmxprinz: 12:05pm On Dec 15, 2022|
Shortly after the national leadership of the Labour Party (LP) sacked the acting national publicity secretary and dissolved the executives of the Ogun state chapter, the Taraba State chapter has suspended its chairperson.
Esther Gulum, the party’s chair, got a no confidence vote, yesterday, from the executive council, in Taraba for allegedly diverted N21 million campaign fund.
Peter Philip, the State organising Secretary, said Gulum’s six months suspension became necessary to enable the party’s leadership investigate the allegation.
Asides the alleged diversion of fund, Gulum was also accused of running the party affairs alone with her immediate family members.
According to Philip, the use of personal accounts to run the affairs of the party in the state, necessitated the action taken by the party’s executive against her.
She was equally accused of engaging in anti-party activities and working for the state government since ascending the leadership position of the party in the state.
“Lack of accountability and transparency in running the affairs of the party in the state,” they said, was the order of the day.
But Gulum claimed to be innocent of the allegations against her.
While admitting that N17 million was approved for the rally, she said N9 million was released to her for the exercise, which account, she had rendered to the executive.
