The Labour party in Cross River State on Friday, called on all its councillorship and local government chairmanship aspirants to come and collect all fees paid for nomination forms.
This follows Tuesday’s cancellation of the local government council election which was billed to hold next year.
The Chairman of Labour party in the State, Ambassador Ogar Osim, while speaking in Calabar said there is no need for the party to tie down the funds when the owners could have pressing demands for them.
He said; “Unlike in other parties where the issue of refund of the money has sparked big problems, we are a people-friendly party and do understand the plights and wants of the people.’’
“We have invited all the councillor and chairmanship candidates in our party to come forward and collect their money. We cannot tie down people’s money. They may have more urgent needs for the money before the envisaged time. But no one is sure if in May next year it would hold.”
