The Bayelsa State Executive Council of the Labour Party (LP) has expelled Udengs Eradiri, its governorship candidate, in the recently concluded off-cycle election in the state.

This development was announced by the state LP chairman, Eneyi Zidougha, during its meeting held in Yenagoa at the weekend.

The council also announced the dissolution of the local government and ward chairmen of the party during its meeting held in Yenagoa at the weekend.

Eradiri was expelled for allegedly contravening the codes and conduct of the party.

According to Zidougha, the state LP leadership took the decision to expel the former governorship candidate after they received information on his alleged illegal activities after the governorship polls, warning members of the public not to have any dealings with him and the ward chairmen.


He said, “After the party primaries and the governorship election on November 11, 2023, the state executive council has unanimously agreed that Mr. Udengs Eradiri be expelled.

“All party members should remain calm because the exercise is meant to strengthen our party and prepare us for the challenge ahead. The general public is hereby advised not to have any dealings with the deposed local government chairmen or Mr Udengs Eradiri on behalf of the Labour Party.”

However, Eradiri advised Zidougha to leave him out of the crisis rocking the state leadership of the party. He described him as “an acting factional chairman of the party”, adding that “the party’s constitution did not confer such powers on him (Zidougha).”
