APC suspend LG aspirant in Edo

The All Progressiv Cesongress (APC) in Ward 10, Illeh-Ekpoma in Esan West Local Government Area of Edo State has suspended one of its leaders in the ward and aspirant in the forthcoming local government Congress of the party, Goddey Okhiulu.

Okhiulu suspension follows allegations that he unilaterally imposed a family member as the ward chairman of the party.

His suspension was contained in a statement signed by 28 out of 31 ward executive members and leaders of the party and made available to journalists, on Wednesday.

They also pledged their loyalty to the leadership of the party in the state led by Col. David Imuse (retd.).The statement read in part, “We pass a vote of implicit confidence on our State Chairman, Col. David Imuse (retd.), the State Secretary, Mr. Lawrence Okah and the other state executive members of our great party.

“Recently, the Ward Congresses were conducted throughout Nigeria by our party. We conducted our own as directed by the party but we were taken aback when we were told that one of the leaders, Mr. Goddey Okhiulu, has already submitted his own list of executive members to the state chapter of our party.

“As a result of the said Mr. Goddey Okhiulu’s act of impunity, arrogance and total disregard to the leadership and executive members of the party in the ward; we, therefore, suspend him from our party with immediate effect.”
