By Peter Jonah

Former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, Mr Olumide Akpata has officially join the Labour Party.

Akpata who hails from Edo State, states that he is tired of complaining about things not working in Nigeria and has taking a step in becoming part of the solution.

He wrote: “Quite a number of people have called/messaged me to confirm the news, currently making the rounds, that I have joined a political party. Yes…I joined the Labour Party (LP) in March this year and on Sunday I attended my first Ward Meeting at Oredo Ward 6, in Benin-City, where I was formally introduced to members of the Ward and presented with my Party membership card.

“This was a major step for me and not one that I took lightly…but I simply got tired of complaining about Nigeria every day and bemoaning her fate and I decided to take the plunge and to try to be part of the solution rather than agonising continually over the problem.

“This, for me, is the start of a very important journey and it is my prayer that I arrive safely at my destination.
