Edo APC Ward Executives Lifts Suspension On Oshiomhole
Executive committee of ward 10 in Etsako west local government of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo state has lifted a suspension on Adams Oshiomhole as a member of the party.
Speaking at a press conference in Abuja, secretary of the ward, Emuakemeh Sule, said 17 members out of 26 signed the resolution.
Oshiomhole was suspended by the party in November following his protracted disagreement with Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo state.
It was on this basis a high court in federal capital territory (FCT) ordered Oshiomhole’s suspension as APC national chairman.
While reading the committee’s resolution, Sule said no merit was found in the allegation that led to the suspension of Oshiomhole.
The secretary stated;
We the undersigned, being the executive committee of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ward 10 Etsako West L.G.A, Edo state having met today 4/6/2020 to affirm the following positions.
That we have reviewed the circumstances leading to the suspension of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and found no merit in the allegation or processes employed.
We hereby lift the suspension placed on Comrade Adams Oshiomhole by the Ward. We call on all organs of our great party to restore all rights and privileges of membership to Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Also speaking at the press conference, Hilliard Eta, APC vice-chairman south-south stated;
Let me say that 17 out of 26 members have signed this resolution. Let me also say that in matters of this nature, our constitution provides for only a simple majority and 17 out of 26 is indeed more than a simple majority. So, we want to use this opportunity to thank Etsako West Ward 10 for what they have done. History will be on your side.
