APC NWC endorsed Ojezua’s suspension.wait for the outcome of the reconciliation committee

The APC National Working Committee met on Wednesday and endorsed Ojezua’s suspension.

The party in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, said it arrived at the decision after receiving a notification of the suspension of Ojezua by 11 of the 16 members of the Edo State Working Committee.

“We have reviewed the process they followed and conclude that they have fulfilled the required conditions.

“We, therefore, uphold the suspension of the Edo State APC Chairman, Anslem Ojezua while we await the outcome of the fact-finding and reconciliation committee.

“Please note that the NWC’s objective and cause of action is strictly to address the root causes of the disputations and reconcile all parties to make our great party even stronger,” the statement said.

But the Deputy National Chairman (North) of the APC,  Senator Lawal Shuaibu, and the embattled National Vice-Chairman (North West), Inuwa Abdulkadir, said they foresaw the current upheaval facing  Oshiomhole.

Both men spoke to Zolexreporters  in separate interviews in Abuja, on Wednesday.

Shuaibu said, “What I predicted when I wrote him my letter is coming to pass. What is left is for leaders of our party to come together and salvage the party which the current national chairman is working very hard to destroy.”

Speaking in a similar vein, Abdulkadir said, “Even for his active support of a faction of the party other than the recognized party structure in his home state of Edo, the national chairman is liable for committing gross misconduct.

“What has become clearer for everyone to see is his arbitrariness. He lacks decorum; his actions have proved that the party under his leadership is floating. The party has lost direction.

“It is time for those who meant well for our great party to step in and salvage the situation because he has once again proved incapable of providing leadership for a national party like the APC.”

Efforts to get the response of Oshiomhole’s Chief Press Secretary, Simon Ebegbulem, did not succeed.
