The Member of House of Representative (HoR) representing Chihun/Kajuru Federal Constituency, Kaduna State, Hon. Ekene Ababakar Adams may have called it quit to Labour Party (LP).
Although Hon. Ekene Adams has not written formally to the Party hierarchy over his perceived quit cited on a Facebook post, neither has he given any concrete reason for leaving LP in an official form
But Last weekend a Facebook post emerged where information there indicated a notice to the general public of leaving the party, citing alleged intra-party squabbles.
Hon. Ekene in the facebooh post stated that “I can not fight before election and continue fighting after Election victory. The best way to stay in peace with such people is just to leave the party for them…if you like say whatever you want.
“This is my notice of leaving labor party. My apology to anyone of you that will be angry at this junction”, he stated”, he stated.
The quit notice of Hon. Ekene who’s currently the Chairman HoR committee on Sports is however not without criticism, surprises and threats as some ardent supporters of his party who felt disappointed took social media to describe his action as unfortunate.
Our correspondent reported that in a social media group chat titled: “Labour Party Sabo Ward”, majority of Ekene’s supporters fumed and expressed bitterness over the quit notice they pasted in their group for clarity.
Some of LP members’ comments obtained on weekend reads in parts: “An unfortunate turn of event: I find this Post by the Honourable, very depressing and disheartening, as the number one citizen of Chikun Constituency, the Honourable Ekene Abubakar Adams post:

This is my notice of leaving labor party. My apology to anyone of you that will be angry at this junction.
“This is a direct interpretation of what the Honourable is saying.
