Ogun State chapter of Labour Party has debunked speculations of any crisis  within the rank and file of the party.

The party's House of Representatives aspirant in Abeokuta South Federal Constituency, Soji Akin-Bankole, who revealed this recently during the official commissioning of the party's Secretariat in Abeokuta, said the act is a ploy to confuse the people of the state. 'The opposition parties are the one causing problem and confusion in Labour party to distract the people. There's no faction in Labour Party in the state,' he said. He noted: 'As you can see, even the aggrieved members headed by Bode Simeon and Sunday Oginni are here today and have come out to say that we are one and that they are with us. They have also declared Otunba Gbenga Daniel as their leader, so where is the faction in the party? We are one indivisible family in Labour Party. It is the opposition parties that are spreading such rumour. Let them go and settle the internal crisis in their parties and leave us alone.' Akin-Bankole said it would be an easy task for LP to unseat the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2015. You can remember in 2003 OGD unseated Osoba so, it's not a problem. Luckily for us, the government in power is not doing very well, people are not happy with them. That is why people have come to say they want a change, I believe that in 2015 LP will take over Ogun State.'
