LP Chieftain Kenneth Okonkwo Hints at Return to APC Amid Party Discontent

Kenneth Okonkwo, a prominent figure in the Labour Party (LP) and former presidential campaign spokesperson, has indicated plans to possibly rejoin the All Progressives Congress (APC) due to dissatisfaction with recent developments in the LP.
Okonkwo, who transitioned to the Labour Party from the APC in 2022, has expressed disillusionment with the LP, describing it as “a secret society led by a group of clowns.” He criticized the party for lacking the integrity needed to capitalize on internal crises within other parties.
In a recent interview on Symfoni, Okonkwo did not dismiss the possibility of switching parties if the LP continues on its current path. “Any party that is not visibly committed to the welfare of Nigerians will most likely not see me there. I don’t rule out going back to anything because change is constant,” he stated.
He further elaborated on his dissatisfaction, particularly highlighting the party’s failure to hold a credible national convention. “My own Labour Party is not impressing me. Assuming they continue on this trajectory where they cannot even hold an acceptable national convention, then you’d tell me I’d be there? I was a spokesperson at the presidential level and I did not know that the Labour Party was having a convention. When I saw it on social media, I thought it was fake. They were rejected in Umuahia because it was a leprous convention,” Okonkwo explained.
Okonkwo condemned the party’s leadership, stating, “Those people are clowns. It is the greatest joke I have ever seen in a political party and then you want to position yourself as a party of integrity. You cannot give what you don’t have. Aburi and his cohorts, their tenure is over. Let Aburi and his cohorts get behind me. They are workers of iniquity. I don’t rate them. That executive is in charge of the secret society. They should be apprehended.”
His remarks reflect a growing frustration within the Labour Party ranks, raising questions about the party’s future cohesion and leadership.
