Following his alleged involvement in Anti-Party activities in the just concluded general elections, the National Working Committee of the ruling All Progressives Congress has suspended the Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu
The party’s NWC had on March 1 resolved to issue a query to the governor over what it described as glaring anti-party activities.
In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Isa-Onilu, after a meeting presided over by the national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, the party had said the governor’s anti-party activities “greatly affected the fortunes of its candidates in the recently conducted presidential and National Assembly elections in the state.”
A member of the NWC, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, however, confirmed to newsmen on Friday that the governor had been suspended.
The source said the decision to suspend Akeredolu was hinged on the fact that his case was similar to the allegations levelled against his Ogun State counterpart, Ibikunle Amosun, and that of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, for which the two governors have been suspended.
