The Court of Appeal in Abuja has reinstated Julius Abure as the National Chairman of the Labour Party, LP.

On Wednesday, the appellate court overruled the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory’s decision, which had earlier barred Abure and two others from serving as national party officers.

However, in the decision issued on Wednesday, Justice Hamman Barka ruled that the high court erred in assuming jurisdiction over the case.

He said, “The judgement of the lower court is hereby set aside” Justice Barka held and awarded a cost of N1 million against the respondents to be to Abure.
