National Chairman Of APC, Adams Oshiomhole, Suspended From Edo Chapter Of Party


BENIN, EDO STATE, NIGERIA - The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole was on Tuesday suspended by the Edo State chapter of the party. 

The action came consequent upon the vote of no confidence passed on Adams Oshiomhole by the Chairmen of the APC in the 18 Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the state.

The Edo State chapter of the APC in a statement jointly signed by the APC Chairman and Assistant Secretary in Edo State, Anselm Ojezua and Ikuenobe Anthony, respectively explained that Oshiomhole was suspended over his alleged role in the crisis rocking the state chapter of the party.

“Consequent on the development, the State Executive Committee has adopted the vote of no confidence passed on him and the subsisting suspension order from the organs of the party in the state.

“The vote of no confidence on Oshiomhole and the suspension are the fallout of his role in trying to disintegrate the party in Edo State. 

"The suspension is necessary to prevent a repeat of what happened in Zamfara State, where the APC was unable to field any candidate in 2019 general elections.

“Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is the one behind the crisis in Edo APC. 

"We have passed a vote of no confidence in him and he stands suspended from the party.

“We don’t want what happened in Zamfara State or other parts of the country to happen in Edo State.”

But in another statement jointly signed by the Chairman of the body and Etsako West Chairman, Ibrahim Akokia, as well as his Etsako Central and Owan West counterparts, Suleiman Bagudu and Lugard Alukpe respectively, the 18 LGA Chairmen of APC in Edo State distanced themselves from Oshiomhole’s suspension.

They particularly denied knowledge of such a meeting where a vote of no confidence was passed on Oshiomhole who they said was “doing very well”.

To the contrary,  they pointed accusing fingers at the state governor, Godwin Obaseki, of harassment and intimidation, adding that his actions could pull down the APC in the state.

They consequently charged the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party to expel Governor Godwin Obaseki from the party over allegations of anti-party activities.
