Breaking : Oshiomhole suspended from APC
By Steve Oko
The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has been suspended from the party by the Edo State chapter of the party.
Oshiomhole was suspended over his alleged role in the crisis rocking the state chapter of the party.
The decision followed the vote of no confidence passed on Comrade Oshiomhole by the Chairmen of the APC in the 18 Local Government Areas (LGAs) of Edo State.
According to a statement signed by Edo APC Chairman, Anselm Ojezua and Assistant State Secretary, Ikuenobe Anthony, the suspension is with immediate effect.
A copy of the release made available to Wawa News Global read in part : “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.”
They said the decision was necessary to prevent a repeat of what happened in Zamfara State, where the party was unable to field any candidate in 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.”
The development according to political pundits may not be unconnected with the supremacy tussle between the former Governor and his successor and political god -son, Godwin Obaseki.
