APGA Chairman denies being sacked from office

07 October 2016, 10:01

Abuja - The embattled National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Victor Oye has denied being sacked by some members of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC), reports Thisday.

Oye noted that reports of his suspension from office was false and not a true reflection of what transpired at the NWC meeting.

He noted that the meeting of the NWC was peaceful and that it considered the report on the outcome of the just-concluded Edo State governorship election.

Some members of the NWC according to News 24 had addressed a press conference in Abuja shortly after a marathon meeting of NWC and announced the suspension of Oye from office.

Speaking on behalf of the NWC, the deputy national secretary of the party, Jerry Obasi said the suspension was necessary in order to save the party from impending destruction and reposition it to greatness, given the circumstances surrounding the party under the leadership of the suspended chairman.
