APGA Suspends National Chairman
The National Working Committee, NWC, of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, has suspended the party’s National Chairman, Ike Oye, for alleged gross misconduct.
The decision was reached at the NWC monthly meeting in Abuja on Thursday.
Deputy National Secretary of the party, Jerry Obasi, told newsmen that the action was in keeping with the provisions of the party’s constitution, following alleged constitutional breaches and inordinate practices by the chairman and some other national officers.
He added that the NWC had to act so as to save the party from impending destruction and reposition it to greatness.
Also suspended alongside Oye were: the deputy national chairman (North), Abubakar Adamu and deputy national chairman, Chief Uchenna Okogbuo, both of whom were also accused of several constitutional breaches.
Some of the allegations levelled against them include not involving the NWC in making electoral regulations as well as not involving the NWC in the day to day running of the party, which violates article 12 (3) of the party’s constitution among others.
