EDO | Fresh Crisis rocks APC as LG Chairman suspended over Commissioners list

by on March 1, 2017
 
A fresh crisis on Tues­day hit the All Pro­gressives Congress (APC) in Akoko Edo Local Government Area of Edo State with the suspension of its local government Chairman, Mr Jeffrey Obasanmi for allegedly nominating a candidate without adherence to due process.
Party leaders from 10 wards at a meeting passed a vote of no confidence on Obasanmi and mandated the Vice Chairman to take over the affairs of the party.
The petition against the chairman was signed by Ashorfor Sylvester, Hon Afolabi Daudu. Comrade Gbenga Martins, Mrs Vic­toria Balogun and six oth­ers.
The Chief Whip of the Edo State House of As­sembly, and a member representing the area in the House of Assembly, Mr Kabiru Adjoto, who reacted to the vote of no confidence, asserted that “the entire leadership in Akoko Edo has rejected the chairman.”
He accused him of con­stituting an illegal commit­tee to screen unqualified people as commissioner nominees.
“They went on to pub­lish result of the kanga­roo screening committee on the social media with names of aspirants he wanted thereby dragging the name of APC in the mud. So we are unanimous in this vote of no confi­dence so that the proper thing will be done,” he as­serted.
