APC suspends beleaguered Edo executive

13 January 2016, 08:03Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Edo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has suspended State Vice Chairman, Gentleman Amegor, for alleged anti-party activities.

The party said its decision was reached at a meeting held on Tuesday when the leaders lamented the alleged lacklustre leadership of the party at the Senatorial District.

"It was observed that the State Vice Chairman and Senatorial leader, Barr Gentleman Amegor failed woefully in implementing the laudable objectives contained in the party’s constitution,” APC stated.

It added that the allegations levelled against Amegor included failure to convene regular meetings of the zone to discuss and resolve issues affecting the development of the party.

APC alleged anti-party activity committed  during the last Presidential elections which led to the loss of Amegor's unit and consequently his Local Government seat.

The party has established a five-member disciplinary committee to probe the allegations.

Rev. Michael Egharevba chairs the group while Uyi Igbe will serve as Secretary.

Meanwhile, Secretary of the Party, Osaro Idah, will now coordinate the activities of the party in the zone.
