Abia State Govt will not allow Labor Party disrupt academic activities in Aba


 The Labour Party's rally at Ngwa High School in Aba, which was set for November 10, has been moved, after a request from the Abia State Government.

The gathering, which would feature the party's presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, the governorship candidate, Dr. Alex Otti, and other candidates, was scheduled by the state chapter of the Labour Party to launch its governorship campaign.

The State Commissioner for Post Basic Education, Chief Israel Mark, wrote a letter to the State Chairman of the Labour Party, titled "PLANNED DISRUPTION OF ACADEMIC ACTIVITIES AT NGWA HIGH SCHOOL, ABA," in which the government claimed that the rally's scheduled start time of 8 a.m. would interfere with academic activities at the school and advised the Party to find a different location for the event.

He explained that by removing students and instructors from their places of learning in order to stage political protests that would also leave school buildings vulnerable to vandalism, the state would be setting a negative precedent.


Our attention has been drawn to the proposed rally by your political party at Ngwa High School, Osisioma Aba, on the 10th of November, 2022 by 8.00am and we wish to strongly advise that you seek alternative venues to avoid disruption of academic activities in the school. 

As you are aware, all public and private schools in the state, including Ngwa High School, Aba, are currently in session with teaching and learning ongoing. It will be wrong to set this bad precedence of chasing away our hard working school children and their teachers in order to hold political rallies that will not only disrupt academic activities but also predispose school properties to vandalization 

We therefore wish to strongly advise that you immediately consider changing the venue of your planned event or seek another date when school children will not be in school. 

Thank you.
