They also noted that, once constituted, the transition committee should fully take over the secretariats of the Party all over Nigeria.

“That the Transition Committee shall immediately set up an assets recovery process of all the properties of the Labour Party.

“The Transition Committee shall also ensure that all the cases of fraud, impersonation and forgery of government documents pending against a few discredited former officers of the Labour Party are forensically audited.

“It should ensure that the culprits are diligently prosecuted as demanded by leader of the Labour Party – Peter Obi.

"It is unfortunate that the actions of these few dishonourable characters have splashed mud on the white satin of Labour Party,” the stakeholders held.
