Segun Oni’s suspension won’t stand, APC elders boast
By Dapo Olaosebikan
Following the suspension of former governor of Ekiti State, Segun Oni from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) over alleged anti-party activities, some elders in the party have said such decision won’t stand.
The elders condemned suspension of the APC chief in a statement jointly signed by Michael Durodola, Tayo Okanlawon, Ebenezer Ogunlana and Sola Ilori, on behalf of the APC elders in Ifaki wards 1 and 2 in the Ido/Osi Local Government Area of the state.
The party elders, who described the suspension as ‘shameful and illegal’ said, “The ward executives’ decision to suspend Segun Oni did not receive the blessing of the generality of the APC leaders in Ifaki wards.”
The statement read, “The allegations were unfounded. The names of those said to have raised allegations of anti-party activities against Oni were neither mentioned, nor were they invited.
“The faceless committee they said they set up did not properly invite the former governor. The suspension letter had no signatures and this rendered it useless.
“We, the elders of the APC in the two wards in Ifaki, reject this suspension and we urge party members and the public to discountenance it.”
