His suspension was announced by Comrade Arabambi Abayomi, National Publicity Secretary of Labour Party on Friday, October 21.

LP’s National Secretary further revealed that Anslem who has been replaced by Prince Kennedy Ahanotu in acting capacity was summoned to appear before the National Working Committee (NWC) but he was unable to defend himself. He has now been suspended for six months.
Ahanotu who was presented to the media as the new Youth leader, promised to be loyal to the party and work for its success in the 2023 general elections.
