The party has been engulfed by a leadership crisis since the 2023 general elections. Matters got to a head with calls by the Nigeria Labohr Congress (NLC) and other stakeholders of the party for the National Chairman to resign.

Despite opposition from the NLC, Abure secured re-election as Labour Party Chairman for a second term, with unanimous support from delegates at the recent national convention held in Nnewi, Anambra State. The declaration was made by Mr. Ikechukwu Emetu, the Chairman of the National Convention and Deputy Governor of Abia State.

Abure has been engaged in a contentious dispute with NLC leadership, particularly led by Joe Ajaero.

The NLC had previously called for Abure’s resignation and the establishment of a caretaker transition committee to oversee a transparent national convention.

Amidst these tensions, on March 20, workers unable to access the party office gathered outside, demanding Abure’s removal over alleged financial misconduct, chanting songs of protest.

The leadership of opposing factions within the party criticized the NLC’s endorsement of the LP, highlighting divisions over leadership. According to the LP, the party’s leadership does not answer the congress, further deepening the rift within the party.
