Labour Party (LP) has promised to refund the nomination and interest form fee paid by one of its governorship aspirants in Imo State that died ahead of the gubernatorial election.

Naija News understands that the deceased, Humphrey Anumudu, had purchased the party’s governorship interest form, reportedly in the sum of N25 Million. Unfortunately, the hopeful governorship candidate passed away weeks later.

Reports had it that Anumudu died in his house in Lagos last week Friday after he had returned from the party’s meeting at the party national headquarters in Abuja.

According to Tribune, Anumudu who is from Mbieri Ancient Kingdom in Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo state was found dead in his house in what family sources described as a “spiritual attack.”

Speaking, however, in Abuja on Tuesday after meeting with the National Assembly-elect members of the Labour Party, the National Chairman of the party, Julius Abure, said as a form of empathy and compassion, LP will refund the N25 million nomination fee paid by a deceased to his immediate family.

Abure also noted that no newly elected members of the National Assembly under the party would defect to other political parties.

Naija News understands that Imo State governorship election is scheduled to hold on November 11 alongside Bayelsa and Kogi State.

Addressing the press yesterday, Abure insisted that empathy is what Labour Party stood for and hence the need to support Anumudu’s family in their trying time.

He said, “You will recall that one of our aspirants in Imo State lost his life. I am pleased to announce to members of the public and members of the Labour Party family and his immediate family that the party will refund the nomination fee of N25 million that he spent.
